UK construction firm receives its first Schmitz Cargobull tipper

UK-based earthworks and demolition company, Hansford Construction, has reportedly taken delivery of a 8.2m light steel half-pipe tipper from trailer builder, Schmitz Cargobull.

The new tipper will join a mixed fleet of trucks, excavators and mini diggers at the West Dorset-based firm and will be used to transport aggregates from quarries in Devon, Dorset and Somerset as well as waste material from sites in the same areas, according to Schmitz Cargobull,

“When it came to expanding our fleet, after looking at our trailers, Schmitz Cargobull was the only brand we considered,” said Hansford Contruction Contracts Manager, James Hansford.

“The total cost of ownership represents real value for money and the product quality is outstanding so we know we will be able to keep it running for a long time.

“I travel to mainland Europe regularly and see Schmitz Cargobull trailers everywhere – everyone seems to recognise their robustness and build quality,” he said.

Schmitz Cargobull has said that the tipper was manufactured in Gotha, Germany, featuring a 5mm trough floor, steel top hinged tailgate, ROTOS axles, running gear, Electronic Braking System (EBS) and PVC roller curtain.
