The body your tipper needs
The roles the 7.5 tonne body has to perform can be both wide-ranging and arduous.
Indeed, this is a body that often seems to work harder than the chassis that carries it!
Often specified with cranes or grabs, the 7.5t is adept at anything from taking tarmac to roadside repairs, picking up spoil, and delivering bagged building materials to difficult access and domestic sites.
If resurfacing pavements, for example, the combination of the tipper's dropsides with a 3-way tipping gear enables the gravel or tarmac to be dropped precisely where it's needed.
