What do I need to know for tipper truck rental?

A good place to start when you’re renting or buying a tipper truck is understanding exactly what they do. Tipper trucks are used to transport loose material to and from construction and roading sites. Tippers trucks are also known as tippers or dump trucks, and usually have an open box bed that’s hinged at the rear. The tipper truck is filled with loose material and then dumps its load by lifting the front of the box bed on hydraulic rams to drop the load out of the back.

How do you safely unload a tipper truck?

With big loads on the move, safety is a very important part of operating a tipper truck. That includes checking above and behind your load before you dump it, and understanding where the risks are and how to make sure you keep everyone safe. It’s also important to understand what the tipper truck you’ve hired can do, the correct way to load material evenly across the truck, and what limits the truck has to protect your safety. It is imperative to be aware if you will be unloading on uneven or sloping ground that your stability will be affected.

Every dump truck should have a trained and skilled operator who knows what they’re doing. If you need help understanding what level of skill your dump truck operator needs, our team is happy to help.
