Wacker Neusons new “Dual View” dumpers

   

An impressive piece of kit raising the standards for site safety and usability for the 6 to 10 ton dumper range. The new Dual View dumpers from Wacker Neuson gives the operator the ability to easily change the seating position with a 180-degree rotation of the control panel and seat. This allows the operator to have an unobstructed, great view of the working area when driving, loading and dumping.

The operator will drive up to the construction area, load or unload materials with a full view of the area (with an option for a well-protected camera by the skip as an option) and, after rotating the seat, drive away again in the same direction they came in without having to awkwardly reverse and maneuver the vehicle. The fully loaded skip won’t block the view as the operator leaves it behind them during travel.

The preferred choice in dumpers are available now at Huskisson! Call now and ask for a quote on a DV60, DV90 or DV100.

Safety alert on compact rollers

Highways England recently published a safety alert on the use of compact rollers on their Smart Motorway Programme after 3 incidents in April 2019 involving narrow twin drum rollers overturning. After a review into their selection and use of plant they are discouraging use of ride-on rollers less than 1.2m wide and instead consider using a remote controlled Wacker plate, remote controlled roller or a pedestrian operated roller.

Why not try a Wacker Neuson remote controlled trench roller from Huskisson? The RTx-SC3 Trench Roller is a tough, compact, highly maneuverable + cost effective piece of kit which eliminates the need for a driver making it ideal for safer site conditions. Call us now for a quote!
