16th May 2022

Dumpers are mainly used for transporting materials to and from a construction site. There are many benefits to using a dumper, from the uses to the different sizes you can hire. Continue reading to find out more advantages of this popular machine.

Benefits of a dumper: 

  • A dumper is great for moving many different materials to, from and around a site. You can move a variety of materials such as sand, gravel, rubble, soil, and excavation waste.
  • Being able to move larger quantities quickly, efficiently, and easily at once allows you to save time, money, and manpower, not to mention it is a lot easier on your back!
  • Tracked dumpers are perfect for working in your back gardens or restricted-access sites, they are narrow enough to fit through a standard doorway. 
  • Dumpers can easily travel across uneven, rough, or muddy terrain, making it great for all sites and conditions.
  • You can hire a range of different sizes, so they are perfect for any step in your project whether moving large quantities of demolition waste, backfilling a trench, or removing excavated soil to create a small pond in a garden.
  • They are easy to operate, but we offer hire with or without a CPCS/CITB accredited operators for peace of mind.
