The 1 Ton Dumper
Small dumpers usually have a load capacity of 1 to 1.5 ton, and with a forward tipping dumper, transporting high volume materials is easy and smooth. These are also known as site dumpers. Dumpers of this size have a proven record of being safe and easy to maintain, with the added benefit of being able to manoeuvre into small or hard to reach areas thanks to their size.
The 2 ton Dumper
These have the ability to carry more than their smaller counterparts and are generally rugged and durable machines. For the ultimate in job site versatility, swivel tip dumpers can rotate a load through 90 degrees to each side of the machine before tipping, therefore making them the ideal machines for backfilling trenches and working in confined spaces.
The 3 & 6 Ton Dumper
Due to being a mid-size dumper, 3 ton machines offer have proven to be versatile machines with the ability to perform on any site necessary. They are built to last and have therefore proven popular in the hire market. Many 3 and 6 ton dumpers have a heavy duty damage resistant chassis which help them deal even the toughest work sites.
What to Look for When Buying Used Dumpers
When purchasing a used dumper, you should be wary of any wear and tear. Dumpers are often used in the harshest conditions, which can compromise their framework, so, it is important to look for a dumper which is double framed as 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 order.
