What to Look for When Buying Used Dumpers

When purchasing used dumper vehicles, buyers should be wary of any wear and tear. Dumper are often used in the harshest conditions, which can compromise their framework. So, it is important to look for dumper vehicles that are double framed. This offers greater durability during heavy loading. Buyers should also look at the motor and the horsepower of the vehicle along with the transmission type. All components should be in proper working condition.

Check the Components of a Used Dumpers

The dump bed and hoist should function as intended. All of the dumper vehicle’s lights should work properly and the tyres should not have any excessive wear. If the vehicle has air brakes, buyers should ensure that the low pressure warning buzzer works and that the component has no air leaks. It is also important to examine the box, liners, and articulation joints.

Check the Fluids and Filters of a Used Dumper

In addition to visually inspecting the dumper, buyers should conduct an oil analysis by opening the bonnet, looking at the engine and filters, and checking the fluid levels. All fluids should be at the proper levels. Buyers should also inspect the oil filters or air filters for predetermined installation or removal date stamps.

Confirm the Usage Time of a Dumper

The number of hours the dumper vehicle has been used can offer an insight into its condition. Buyers should look for dumper that have less than 10,000 hours of use. After this time, many vehicles start to show signs of wear and tear and their lifespan decreases significantly. In general, the lifespan of dumper vehicles tends to range between 9,000 and 15,000 hours, depending on how well the dumper has been cared for.

Ask for a Test Drive of a Dumper

Buyers should find out if it is possible to test drive the dumper before purchase.
