We offer dumper hire to suit your needs

At Selwood, we offer a variety of Thwaites and Terex dumpers, ranging from 1 to 10-tonne payload – including swivel-skip and narrow models. We can also provide road-legal dumpers with lights and tax. All Dumpers for hire are fitted with a ROPS (Rollover Protection System), seatbelts, and amber beacon.

Green beacons

On many construction sites it is now a requirement that machines be fitted with a seat belt warning light system. The wearing of a seatbelt is identified by a green flashing beacon mounted in a prominent position. Note: Green Beacons must be removed if the machine is being used on the highway.

 

Road legal dumpers for hire

All our dumpers have been fitted with road lights and registered for road use, for a small additional charge. Hirers are responsible for ensuring that they have adequate insurance to cover use on the highway.

 

Brake testing

All wheeled equipment supplied by Selwood will be service brake and handbrake tested with a DVSA approved tester. This determines the braking efficiency of both the service brake (foot brake) and handbrake by measuring the rate of deceleration from a speed of around 20 mph until the vehicle comes to rest, giving the customer satisfaction that when delivered, equipment is tested to the highest possible standards.

 

VCAS

We also offer the Vehicle Collision Avoidance System (VCAS) - a portable device developed as an aid in safety for detecting objects within a predetermined field. This item can be hired and fitted to 3-tonne dumpers and above, at a small additional charge.

 

Dumper hire extras

Dumper machinery hire from Selwood means access to our SureTrack Recovery System designed to enable stolen assets, such as hired plant, to be returned to their owners with minimum disruption and delay.

Also available is Track Unit, a keypad immobiliser fleet management tool fitted to all new dumpers since 2016 and selectively retro-fitted to other equipment on a required basis.

All our dumpers have machine-specific QR codes which hold all health and safety information required by a customer. Simply access by scanning with a smartphone or tablet.

As our business is built on plant hire, we created a bespoke tablet-based hire system based on that knowledge and experience, designed to make it quick and easy to hire from us. Selwood bespoke digital mobile workforce system can give you date and time stamped copies of your delivery and collection paperwork, along with covering photographs of machines delivered to or collected from site.
