Industry Movement To Protect Site Dumper Operators – New Cabbed Dumpers

WHC Hire is proud to announce the arrival of the first of many swivel tip cabbed dumpers from Thwaites. These new additions are part of a larger investment that will be introduced to all WHC Hire depots by the end of the year.

A new legislation that comes into effect in 2025, states that all site dumpers with an unladen weight over 4.5T must be fitted with a production-fitted cab. These cabs must be in line with ROPS and FOPS ISO 3471 & 3449. WHC Hire has always committed itself to the safety of its clients, thus this new investment is a welcomed change in the industry.

This first introduction to WHC Hire’s fleet will include 3 x 6T Swivel Tip models and 1 x 9T Forward Tip model. These will be replacing older machinery which is renewed every 4 years as part of the commitment to supply the finest machinery on the market. You can find full specifications of the 6T Swivel Tip Cabbed & 9T Cabbed Dumpers in the wheeled dumper section of our online catalogue.

MD James Clutterbuck said, “It was only a matter of time until cabbed dumpers were going to become more than just a comfort feature on articulated dumpers. As soon as we heard of the legislation change coming in for 2025, I had no hesitation in arranging the delivery of these new machines. We have been using Thwaites dumpers for some years now and have been extremely impressed with the performance and safety features that come as standard. Therefore, when it came to choosing a new cabbed dumper supplier, it was an easy choice. I am looking forward to seeing the impact these machines have on our contract clients. As a 6-time health and safety gold medal award winner from RoSPA, we have a vital role in actively promoting a safer operation of all machinery used throughout our industry. I am certain, that across the board, this new legislation will save lives in the long run.”
