our six tonne swivel tip dumper from
Thwaites. Now I’m going to go through a

control panel and also the operator seat
to assist us with our three points of
Now when you get into the cockpit
simply sit down in the operators seat and
we can begin our adjustments to the seat.
The handlebar on the left-handd side will
bring the rear of the seat forward and
backwards. To the front right-hand side
of the operator seat is a lever that
allows you to move you closer and
further away from the steering wheel. And
finally in between your legs is your air
suspension adjustment.
Now that you’re in the correct position
to operate the machine first thing we
need to do is pop on our seat belt.
Please remember that this machine will
not move in any way shape or form
without that seat belt engaged.
Compliance is shown by the green beacon
above you flashing when the machine is
turned on. One of the most common issues
with this machine is the fact that the
seat belt is not engaged and the safety
system of the machine kicks in. Now

the pedals that we’ve got in front of us
as well.
On the left hand side we’ve got our clutch

different gear ratio depending on the
speed that we’re operating
the machine at.
