A-Plant has more than 2,000 dumpers in its fleet, up to 10-tonne class.

Thwaites has the widest range of four-wheel drive site dumpers, which are renowned throughout the industry for high performance levels, durability and low operating costs.”

A-Plant’s 2013 investment programme has also included orders of more than £2m for Hamm tandem rollers from Wirtgen, £2.2m of SDMO Generators and a £27m order for 800 machines from JCB.
