Thwaites Dumpers for instance is a family business with an impressive pedigree. Founded by Basil Thwaites in 1937, the company was originally aimed at the agricultural industry. After the war in 1945 the business focussed on products for the construction market.

In 1957, the company produced the first site dumper of the type that influenced the sector and set the bar for dumper design.

1937
Basil Thwaites established his first workshop in Warwickshire, currently occupied by an extensively developed site.

1941
The post war ‘build back better’ strategy drove the need for more advanced agricultural machinery and processes. The Thwaites ‘Forage Harvester’ improved farming productivity and effectiveness.

1947
As Britain’s economy grew, there was a demand for new homes, and Thwaites developed mechanical solutions to enable this. They came up with the ‘builder’s hoist’ which enhanced safety where builders and bricklayers were concerned.

1950
Thwaites became known for manufacturing high quality construction related products, and a new factory was built on the original site.

1951
The British construction industry was gathering pace, and Thwaites consulted with the industry and contractors to design, manufacture and launch the very first site dumper. It was a 15 cwt-capacity, two-wheel drive, reverse tip machine. It’s ease of operation made it an immediate success.

1953
After the success of the very first 15 cwt machine the ‘Standard’ was launched, a machine which became the template for the design of every site dumper made since, by every

manufacturer.

1955
Thwaites decides to cease the manufacturing of agricultural machinery and concentrate on an exclusive path to the design and manufacture of site dumpers.

1957
In this year Thwaites launched the iconic, world recognised ‘Tusker’, larger and more powerful than previous versions.

1960
The ‘Tusker’ was a huge success and attachments were made available to enable work in concrete batching, rail and excavation. The ingenious backhoe, for instance, allowed the operator to operate the machine as a traditional dumper, while digging trenches.

1962
The sixties saw the innovative and incredibly popular four-wheel drive articulated dumper, the 2 ton ‘Alldrive’.

1966
The tough, versatile 3 ton ‘Alldrive’ prompted the arrival of a wide range of articulated four wheel drive dumpers onto the market.

1975
In the mid 1970’s the next generation ‘Alldrive’ appeared. The 9000 had a 4 ton capacity, along with all the dynamic ‘Alldrive’ features. A unique swinging rear axle gave operators even greater control and manoeuvrability.

1979
Years ahead of its time the 8-ton Goliath, became the first cabbed and largest Thwaites dumper to date. Perfect for major infrastructure projects this 8 ton machine fulfilled the growing need for larger capacity machines

Thwaites 8 Tonne1981
In the early 1980’s Thwaites design team had an engineering breakthrough, with the invention of the revolutionary ‘Kinglink’. Articulation and oscillation gave operators even greater control and quality of ride.

1984
In 1984 Thwaites, deviated from exclusively manufacturing dumpers to produce an ‘Alldig’ machine. This was a compact Backhoe Loader with four wheel drive and hydraulic side-shift clamping. Whilst engineered to Thwaites exacting standards, the product was not as successful as previous products.

1986
In 1986, Thwaites boosted its gearbox, producing, manufacturing and installing the very first power shuttle transmission on the ‘Alldrive’ 5 Tonne.

1989
The Thwaites ‘Alldrive’ 6 ton dumper was turbo-charged and was much-copied in the marketplace.

1993
The Thwaites ‘3000 Alldrive’ had a Perkins engine enabling turbo power in its compact dumpers. It was favoured by plant hire companies and ideal for use on urban renovation programs and infrastructure projects in places like Southend.

2000+
At the turn of the millennium Thwaites expanded its international distribution network, and Thwaites dumpers became available in more than 70 countries on 5 continents.

2017
The company have never looked back and continue to thrive, in 2017 they launched a range of 6 ton & 9 ton cabbed dumpers, which have helped to drive safety standards in the industry.
