The move follows trials of new machines developed in collaboration with plant manufacturer Wacker Neuson.
The new forward tipping dumpers were launched late last year and allow greater productivity, efficiency and improved visibility and protection for the driver.
They have proved a hit in Costain site trails and the contractor has now “mandated guidance for all contracts on dumper selection for the task with Dual View as standard.”
The Dual View Dumper reduces the need for drivers getting in and out during loading while the innovative design also enables the use of larger dumper sizes, exceeding the current six tonne limit.
Costain said: “Using the dual dumper and having access to larger sizes, fewer dumpers could be hired permitting potential cost savings.”
The design also improves visibility while the cab protects drivers from the elements and dust.
One operative said: “After using the Dual View for a full shift, not having to climb up and down when loading, like we often have to on other dumpers, my knees and back felt so much better when I got home.”
