Leading equipment hire company A-Plant is helping to improve site safety, sustainability and productivity with a £900k investment in 20 new 6T and 9T Dual View Dumpers from Wacker Neuson.
The move follows a recent trial at Sellafield earlier this year.
Ian Jordan, Managing Director for A-Plant, said the investment is a response to increasing customer demand. He said: “We purchased our first Dual View Dumper earlier this year and after proving its safety, sustainability and productivity credentials at Sellafield, it was clear to us that the new machines provide considerable safety advantages.
“More construction companies are beginning to introduce Dual View Dumpers onsite as standard, and we are proud to be able to offer our customers this new product, which has enhanced safety and comfort in addition to increased operating efficiencies and improved productivity”.
Designed to enhance visibility and eliminate blind spots, Wacker Neuson’s new Dual View Dumpers feature a swivel skip dumper, a fully enclosed safety cab and a rotating driving console. Other features include, a rear-view camera installed as standard and highlighted steps with signal colour to allow for a safe ascent to the driver’s station.
