Forward Tipping Dumper & Ride on Roller (Experienced Worker)

The Forward Tipping Dumper is the construction industry’s robust and reliable solution for transporting various materials to, from, and across site. With the load held at the front of the machine and the driver sitting behind, it is ideal for undulating surface travel and can carry various materials. The key to optimum usage lies in operation - not overfilling the truck, careful and skilful handling, and expert knowledge of excavation site driving and stability.
