Local Authority 12-tonne 3 Way Tipper Build

2nd January 2021

We have recently finished work on a 12 tonne, 3 way tipper for a Local authority. We had a particular challenge on this one with incorporating drop down fall arrest with a front to rear sheeting system. 

The build included:

  • 4500mm Body with 460mm pressed aluminium sides.
  • 460mm Steel Tailgate with 2 x tar chutes.
  • Double drop with access door to front.
  • Folding ladder for access.
  • Segregated `clean` area at front for storage with removable divider.
  • Drop down fall arrest system.
  • Dawbarn Electric Front to Rear Sheeting System.
  • Payload of 6350kg

We'd also like to give a big thank you to Motus Commercials  for providing us with the DAF LF Chassis.

Although some parts of the build were a challenge, our brillaint team were able to overcome this, leaving our customer as pleased as we are!
