7.5 ton or 10 ton?

Recommended Posts

Got to the point where my transit van is not efficient enough to be productive, we can fill it with chip in 10 mins! it has crippled our work load this week and spent more time back and forth from site tipping off :thumbdown: I got my O licence through last year but never got a vehicle, i looked at a few Mitsubishi canters but heard they are not that good.

Not sure where to start looking, 7.5 tonner? 10 tonner?

If you get a 10 tonner don't you have to get t tested every 10 weeks ?

10 or 12 tonne tipper, nail some greedy boards on and get it straight to work.

 

7.5 tonner you will overload if you put a decent size chip bin on it.

7.5T you can still get people who have this licence, any bigger and it's HGV which will limit your drivers. Not a problem if you're the only driver, just food for thought

ive got class 2 and my C1+E only me driving it so that's not an issue, old or new? after starting out with second hand crap i now have all new kit, this is the last thing i need to buy, don't like buying other peoples tackle really as it doesn't last as long, i look after my stuff really well so have no issue spending 40 grand on a new vehicle because i know i will get my moneys worth.

I think something that big would knacker us for access on some jobs, think its a compromise between size and payload

 

 

 

What's your budget?

 

Something like this is what I would go for, bit of paint and it will look really tidy.
