If you are in the mining, construction, or infrastructure industry, then you would know how essential a tipper truck hire is. Tipper trucks are just normal trucks fitted with a platform that can raise to discharge its load. Tipper truck hire is used to transport aggregates, crushed rocks or other materials that have to be dumped at one site. If the project’s purpose is to transport material from one site to another, then a truck hire would do the job. These tipper trucks have low operational costs and are preferred for their high manoeuvrability, performance and long-term endurance.

There are many types of tipper trucks. A standard tipper truck uses a vertical hydraulic ram installed below the front of the body to raise the platform. These are mostly used for smaller capacity purposes. Due to its low capacity, tipper trucks have high manoeuvrability.

Next is the transfer dump truck. They are powered by an electric motor and a pneumatic motor and roll-on small wheels, riding on rails from the frame of the trailer. The dump truck’s design increases payload capacity without affecting the manoeuvrability. They also have a capacity of 26 or 27 short tonnes and are capable of 3 to 5 loads per day. A roll-off tipper truck comes with a subframe and a hoist. The container is placed on the ground and it is pulled back on the truck with the help of a winch and a cable. These containers have rollers on the rear and can be moved forward or back until the front of it is lowered onto the ground. They are used for carrying the rubble and building debris left after the demolition of any property. There are also many more but these tipper trucks are widely used and each comes with different functionality and uses. Therefore, while planning for a tipper truck hire, you should also know which type of tipper truck would do the job for you.

Having a dump truck on your worksite also comes with some potential safety risks to be aware of. Firstly, make sure the truck is on level ground before unloading the platform, or else the sudden off-balance and weight change due to lifting of the body and dumping of material can cause the truck to slide or even tip over. Also, because of their huge size, there may be a difficulty with maintaining visual contact with workers at the site; therefore these tipper trucks can be a threat to those workers especially when backing up. Hence make sure your tipper truck is fitted with proper mirrors and backup alarms. You must always ensure that you have a well experienced and a professional operator at your worksite before you go for a tipper truck hire.

There are many tipper truck hire suppliers in Australia. But you wouldn’t want to visit every local supplier to know which one aptly matches your requirement, would you? It would take a lot of time; you would have to spend money and energy.
