New orders for 42 dumpers placed with dealer Shellplant includes five all-new Thwaites 2t Hi Swivels.
This increases Newmarket Plant’s dumper rental fleet to almost 150 machines – the vast majority being Thwaites.
The £1m investment with Shellplant included other equipment including Kubota mini excavators and Ingersoll Rand portable compressors and follows a major £1.4m investment in equipment last year.
“We have invested a large amount in equipment over the past year strengthening our product portfolio throughout our six depots which serve East Anglia and the Midlands down and across the whole of the south east of England,” said owner Carl Jarvis.
<h2>Thwaites 2t Hi Swivel spec</h2>
The only dumper that can lift its two tonne load, swivel it through 180 degrees and dump it at a height of 1.710 metres.
It has compact dimensions – just 1.7m wide when swivelled and 1.47m wide when the skip is retracted.
It features a three-cylinder, water-cooled direct-injection diesel Yanmar 3TNV88 which produces 24.8 kW (33hp) and uses Thwaites’ Kinglink technology for superior stability and traction.
The Hi Swivel dumper has precise skip controls allowing it to easily load over the side of common builders’ skips.
