Dumpers are commonly found at building sites, were large amounts of bulky or heavy materials need to be moved. Their usefulness can only be appreciated when you consider how life would look without them. Before dumpers were a ‘thing’, materials like soil, concrete, bricks, rubble and wood, had to be moved manually. This was slow, exhausting and extremely damaging to the backs of workers, who had to physically lift and carry the waste. A wheelbarrow was often used, but this wasn’t much easier, as there was still a lot of strenuous manual work involved.
When plant machinery like dumpers emerged it was a bit of a game changer, for both contractors and the clients. A faster turnaround and less hands on deck, meant that jobs were completed more quickly and consequently cost less.
Today’s dumpers meet the demand of every modern building or landscaping project, and are an integral part of many jobs. Apart from all the other advantages of dumper hire for your project, another plus is reduced injuries! Moving materials which could be sharp, jagged and heavy if dropped is unwise. This can result in cuts, bruises and stressed joints, but if using a mechanical dumper there is far less chance of this.
Dumpers transport heavy building materials to the area they are needed and haul away any subsequent waste materials. They are tough and robust offering exceptional performance. Sturdy, large tires, allow these vehicles to stand up to the sort of surface debris you find on site. These include large nails and sharp pieces of metal, which would easily puncture or damage regular tires.

Dumpers are also designed to negotiate all kinds of terrain, and can be driven over uneven ground with no trouble.
