What is the 1-Ton Wheeled Dumper?

This versatile and heavy-duty machine is ideal for jobs where space is at a premium. It has a 1 tonne capacity and has a hi-tip capability, which is ideal for loading waste and materials into a skip or other types of vehicles.

As you are probably aware, most dumpers are used for carrying and moving bulk material on and around a building site.

Scenarios Ideal for using this dumper?

This 1-ton wheeled dumper is ideal for accessing the locations that do not have a great deal of space and for loading items into a skip.  It can also be used for:

  • Lifting materials/waste into skips (or other vehicles)
  • Partnering with a mini digger
  • Moving materials and waste
  • Driving in and through small buildings or areas with low ceilings
