The Thwaites name is synonymous with precision engineering and innovation – and their 3 Tonne Front Tip is a great example of how it all comes together in one super-powered dumper. • Three-cylinder water-cooled Yanmar direct injection diesel motor (2800rpm) • Manual transmission • Max torque 111 Nm • Heavy duty three-speed gearbox • Enclosed multiplate brake discs • ROPS frame fitted as standard in UK We’ll start with the skip itself: Made from 5mm welded steel, with reinforcements around the mouth and sides, this is a hard-wearing skip that’s made for ongoing, heavy use.
Then there’s the chassis – made from folded steel plate, with three-point Kinglink, giving your operators superb articulation, stability and traction on any surface. While the oil-immersed disks on the rear axle provide effective control of all four wheels.
Finally, let’s look at what makes this the machine that operators love to operate… From the smooth motion of the gearbox to the impeccable power steering, this is a big machine that handles beautifully. It’s equipped with a ROPS safety frame, adjustable suspension seat, large pedal pads and intuitive controls.
