The Thwaites 6 Tonne Front Tip Cabbed, Stage V dumper is manufactured with contractors in mind – ensuring operator safety, reducing risk on site, and improving performance. The cab is impact tested to level 2 ROPS 3471 and FOPS 3449, and as such all Thwaites cabbed dumpers are approved for use by the UK Major Contractors Group.
