What do you need to know about our vehicles used for tipper lorry hire?
A tipper lorry has in common with a fixed bodied lorry a standard base and chassis. However, the tipper lorry differs in that its body is able to tilt backwards – whether to a minimum of a six degree angle or a maximum of about fifty degrees. The angle that is chosen for the tipper dictates the speed at which the carried load slips off.
As for how exactly one may use a tipper truck, they are often spotted being driven to and from building sites, carting material like soil, site spoil and aggregates. It is the material that is generally carried by the tipper that often determines the material from which the body of the tipper truck is made.
There are two materials that are largely used for the body of the tipper: aluminium and steel. Given the more lightweight nature of aluminium, tipper truck bodies that are made from this material are able to bear a greater overall carrying weight. This makes aluminium common for the bodies of the tipper trucks that mostly carry aggregates, whereas steel is a rather tougher material, befitting harsher usage.
Other vital considerations for tipper lorry hire
It is imperative to consider the dimensions and other vital figures of the tipper lorry on which you have your eye, prior to hiring.
Tipper lorries vary in their turning arc and the maximum weight that they can carry. You will need the turning arc to be no less than about forty feet, or the width of two road lanes.
Another dimension that you will need to bear in mind is the body’s loading height – essentially the height from the ground to the top of the body.
