Trial of New & Safer Dumper Truck

Following some horrendous incidents within our industry in the last 12 months or so, the A19-A1058 Coast Road Junction Improvement Scheme have had a new JCB Hi-Viz dumper to trial.

This is one of several products which are currently on, or just about to enter, the market.

It utilises a structural cab which eliminates the risk of falls from vehicles, as the dumper can be loaded with the driver secured in the cab.

In addition, the sloped skip front and lower skip position increase forward visibility, and reduces the blind spot to one meter high and one meter away from the skip. Clear decals showing load level and high visibility access and egress points all increase driver safety.
