Tipper Trucks

Tipper trucks are unique from other construction and transport equipment since they allow the driver of the vehicle to quickly deliver the material they're carrying without the help of another vehicle. They do this by slowly raising the bed of the truck and allowing the material to slide through a side or rear gate that has been unlocked. These trucks are available as used vehicles in a collection of styles from manufacturers such as Kia, Mitsubishi, Bobcat and Tata.

The Many Advantages of Modern Tipper Trucks

Tipper trucks provide a very versatile platform for moving and hauling a wide range of materials. Older models of these trucks were limited in their application and used mainly for transport and dumping of rock, gravel and other building materials. With recent upgrades to bed designs, these newer models are being used in more place than ever before and provide a very flexible alternative to other construction vehicles.

Rear Tipper Truck or Side Tipper Truck?

The first consideration that most buyers have is how the tipper truck delivers it payload. Conventional tippers were designed to have the material they were carrying exit the rear of the truck when the bed was lifted. While this did a good job of placing the material where it was needed, some projects with limited space for manoeuvering were a challenge for these rear tipper models. To help alleviate this problem, aside tipper truck was introduced that allowed the driver of the vehicle to pull up next to a location and deliver the payload.

Tipper Truck Uses Outside Of Simple Construction Projects

Newer versions of these tipper trucks continue to evolve and are being used in more places than ever before. Increased road clearance has enabled these modern tipper trucks to be used areas of rough terrain and clear the brush and other obstacles that would have stopped older versions. Upgraded engines and drive trains also enable these newer versions to carry heavier loads of material and deliver it to steeper elevations without worry. Tata Motors Ltd. offers several models of tippers with heavy-duty engines.

Modern tipper trucks have come a long way from their humble beginnings. The newer models available can carry larger loads and offer a wide range of options, helping to make these unique trucks popular with contractors.
