Dumpers such as the Thwaites range from Rhinos, are perfect for their intended tasks, namely moving heavy loads from A to B. They are designed to be functional, versatile and robust during construction projects, landscaping or roadworks. Our dumpers have exceptionally smooth hydraulics for perfect lifting and dumping action. Operator precision means materials, waste etc are placed exactly where required. Whatever size of project in places like Watford, you will find the correct dumper for you.
There are several brands of dumpers available throughout the UK, all with their own particular story.
Benford, Terex, Terex/JCB & Mecalac
Based in Warwick, Benford was purchased by the Terex Corporation, who moved production to Coventry. They also dropped the Benford name, and eventually closed the Warwick spare parts facility in favour of a space in Germany. After supply issues, the dumper spare parts were returned to Coventry. Terex began to manufacture dumpers for JCB, until JCB decided to make their own. The Terex dumper and roller range were sold along with the backhoe loader to Mecalac.
The old Aveling Barford works saw the production of Barford site dumpers, the first to feature a 100hp engine and the first to use polypropylene tanks. These dumpers were well built and performed well, but unfortunately Barford went into administration in 2010.
Lifton, Neuson/Wacker Neuson, Ausa, NC
A hydrostatic 1 tonne skip loading dumper was manufactured in Wales by Lifton, who were bought out by Neuson in the late 90’s. The signature yellow brand colour changed to red, with the range expanding to include a 9 tonne dumper. Production moved from Wales to Europe, only to merge with manufacturers Wacker in 2007. Wacker Neuson produce dumpers, plate compactors, mini excavators and telehandlers for the international market.
Spanish manufacturers Ausa, created the first proper skip loader called the Ausa 108, and also make compact forklifts, telehandlers and dumpers. Popular in Spain and France, the Ausa is a very strong seller in these countries, but Ausa eventually backed away from the UK market. NC in Northern Ireland produce high quality dumpers from 1 -10 tonne capacity.
JCB, as mentioned emerged from the Terex brand, but started to make their own dumpers. Their 6 tonne version had a low centre of gravity and excellent forward vision, also available as a 9 tonne forward tip vehicle. JCB have a comprehensive range of dumpers in a variety of sizes and capacities.
