Single V dual wheel tipper

Recommended Posts

I'm about to buy a tipper and want to know if there's much difference in the grip between single and dual axle.

 

I'll be on tracks regular so if there's much of a difference it may be with it.

 

I recently hired 2 with single wheels on and they weren't great but manned for most of want I needed.

Twins on our van seem to have more grip than the one with singles even on the road, certainly more stable, cost more to run, best to keep the tyres even, otherwise accelerated wear results. Stones could get jammed between twins. You could limp home in the event of a puncture although not recommended. Difficult choice.

load is more on duals hence livestock carriers having duals

 

Increasing the surface area will reduce the ground pressure, not

increase it.

tink he means the livestock boys use duals as they are legally allowed to carry more load/weight.
