Dumpers are frequently seen at building sites, transporting bulky or heavy materials from A to B. It’s hard to imagine life on the building site without the help of these versatile vehicles. At one time, bricks, rubble, wood, concrete and soil would have had to be manually lifted and carried around. This was extremely tiring for construction workers, and bad backs would have been even more of a problem than nowadays. Wheelbarrows alleviated things to some extent, but materials would still have to be physically loaded.
Apart from that, there were other disadvantages to not having mechanical help with building projects. The process would have taken a lot longer and consequently cost more.
The development of dumpers was a bit of a game changer, for all involved, it speeded up the workload significantly and saved on time and money. Used extensively for modern building and landscaping projects, they provide a reliable solution. At Rhinos, we have sourced some of the highest quality dumpers for our fleet from the biggest names in the business. We prefer Thwaites, for their status as a leading plant machinery manufacturer.
We also listen to customer opinion, which confirms our choice. These customers are largely professionals with reputations to maintain, and who rely on our hire vehicles.
We have a great choice of dumpers to suit every need, whether it’s removing building waste materials or landscaping soil and debris. Our dumpers come as high lift, high discharge, side/front swivel tip and cabbed or non-cabbed. Dumper sizes go from 2 ton to 9 ton, and feature technically advanced electrics and hydraulics. Thwaites versatile dumpers have four wheel drive, pivot steering and articulation. They are also designed to cope with a variety of terrains, and can be efficiently driven over uneven ground.
Their ability to complete tight turns, reverse and provide excellent visibility makes them popular for use on infrastructure and roadwork jobs. In addition to the other benefits, using dumpers at the work site will reduce injuries from handling sharp or jagged objects.
Theft of plant machinery is rampant throughout the UK, and dumpers are high on the list of desirable booty! It is estimated that this type of theft cost the construction industry at least £800million in 2020 alone. A very small percentage of these stolen vehicles are ever recovered as they are notoriously hard to trace. Construction companies, site managers and contractors are urged to focus on security for their equipment. There are now advanced tracking devices which can help to find stolen goods, and they are pretty successful.
Alternatively, many professional contractors have found that hiring their dumpers and other machinery when needed is the ideal solution. There are no storage, maintenance, safety or insurance worries. When you hire from specialists like Rhinos, you usually get to use the most up to date versions too, keeping you and your customers happy.
