Do you have a project coming up and know it’ll require a lot of heavy lifting to remove material? The reality of undergoing a construction project is that there is almost always a need for a tool to help remove dirt and other materials to make space on the site. If your project requires this, then you might want to look into hiring a tipper truck.
Designed to carry and transport various materials, tipper trucks may be just the equipment you need to finish your next construction project. If you think you might benefit from a tipper truck, today, we’ll be delving into the benefits and uses a tipper truck could do for you!
What Are Tipper Trucks and What Are They Used for?
A tipper truck, also commonly known as a dump truck, is a heavy goods vehicle with a tipper body on the rear. Their ability to carry heavy loads makes them widely used on construction sites to quickly, efficiently and safely transport various materials.
Benefits of Tipper Truck Hire
1. Transport heavy or high volume materials
If you’re familiar with the idea, then you’ll know careful consideration is needed when selecting the appropriate machinery depending on the worksite conditions and material you plan on transporting. Luckily, tipper trucks are perfectly designed to carry heavy loads under challenging working conditions, all whilst allowing the driver to control the vehicle and its contaminants completely.
2. Cost-effective material transportation
With the assistance of a tipper truck, you can make fewer trips, use up less time and essentially save on money,! If you are completing a construction project and want to make minimal trips whilst carrying large amounts of materials, you have to hire a tipper truck. Their hydraulic lifts and tilting capability also allow them to unload the materials you’re hauling quickly, so earthmoving and waste removal are made easy! Rubbish can be emptied quickly, meaning you can get back to your worksite faster to complete your project. It also happens to make it easier than committing to multiple trips to unload a trailer or ute!
Ryno Hire provides tipper trucks that can make this possible with our easy-to-use trucks, where some can even be driven on a standard open car license. If you don’t plan on using a tipper truck regularly and only plan on using it for a couple of hours, then hiring any of our tipper trucks can help you avoid higher expenses. You also get the benefit of skipping out on the regular costs such as maintenance and registration.
3. Complete a range of projects
Manoeuvrable, compact and sturdy, tipper trucks are capable of navigating streets and driveways. In addition, they have the bonus of being very user friendly. So complete the yard of your dreams all within a weekend with the help of a tipper truck.
4. Carry a range of materials
We already know tipper trucks can carry heavy materials, but they can also efficiently transport various materials. Designed to distribute weight evenly, a tipper truck safely hauls these different types of materials across a range of terrains.
From turf, sand, gravel and dirt to asphalt and wood chips, just to name a few, a tipper truck is capable of moving a variety of loose materials. While transporting these materials would be difficult in other vehicles, a tipper truck can efficiently complete such a task. So don’t delay your next landscaping project, and dry hire a tipper truck today. You can rest assured that everything a tipper truck carries remains secure and in place.
5. Give hiring a trailer a miss
Designed to carry heavy loads, tipper trucks can help transport materials to another area on the same worksite or locations further away. However, it’s their large capacity that allows you to skip hiring trailers. They’re even able to carry smaller machinery like excavators. With such versatility, you can feel confident a tipper truck has you covered, no matter what industry you work in. Whether that be landscaping, construction, or waste removal, a tipper truck has you covered.
As tipper trucks only require a driver’s license to operate, with some even only needing an open car licence, it makes them the perfect alternative to a trailer. You can forget the awkwardness of trying to reverse with a trailer and hire a tipper truck instead.
