Why choose a tracked dumper?
There are some very good reasons why you might decide to choose a tracked dumper. The fact that army tanks have tracks is not without good cause; and the benefits of tracks can be equally applied to dumper trucks. In certain conditions this vehicle will offer many advantages over the other types of dumper. Here are just some of the reasons why you might choose it;
Are there and disadvantages with this type of vehicle?
- If you are going to be dealing with soft ground then a dumper with tracks is ideal. Normal wheeled dumpers would just sink into the ground, but this tracked dumper will be able to manage these conditions easily. This vehicle does not sink into mud and it does not create ruts to get stuck in.
- This dumper truck can manage steep inclines that would cause regular vehicles to just spin out.
- Using this truck means less chance of accidents.
- This dumper not only avoids sinking into holes but it creates a level surface as it goes along. This dumper will flatten the ground and make it easier for other trucks to manage.
- It is able to work in all types of bad weather that other types of dumper truck would not be able to manage. This often means that you can get the project completed in a much faster time. There is no need to halt work every time it starts to rain.
- This dumper is less likely to cause damage to the ground you are working on. This means that it is kinder to the environment; an important consideration for some projects. It will also mean less tidying up to do once the project is complete.
Should you choose a tracked dumper?
- The tracked dumper tends to carry smaller loads then some of the other big dumpers. Mind you, there is probably no other dumper that could manage the loads that it does over rough terrain.
- The tracks can get really muddy, but they are usually able to operate even when covered in mud.
- This type of dumper can be more expensive to buy or hire, but if you are going to make good use of it then it will probably work out to be a good investment. The fact that the dumper can work in conditions that would stop other dumpers can mean that you can get a job completed a lot faster; especially considering the rainy and unpredictable climate in the UK.
This will depend on the project you are working on. If you want to get the job done fast and the ground is going to be difficult for a regular dumper then it is certainly well worth considering. If you are worried about work being stopped due to bad weather then a tracked dumper might be able to help you avoid this. If you are worried about causing damage to the local environment then a dumper with tracks is the ideal way to keep this to the minimum.
