Used for years on European construction sites, Terex PT2000, PT3000 and PT4000H site dumpers are now available to the North American market. Using Terex site dumpers, North American contractors will find it easier to move materials in confined areas, around or behind buildings â€” where they can™t fit or move a traditional dump truck.
According to Terex Product Manager Ernie Ferguson, Whether you have a big or small site, you™re a landscaper or construction contractor, whatever the application, site dumpers will help save many hours of hand labor loading and unloading materials on your jobsite â€” versus the efficiency of one worker on a Terex site dumper doing the job.â€
The multi-purpose Terex Power Tip (PT), or forward dump, site dumpers are designed to move a variety of materials, including dirt, clay, sand, stone, concrete and fertilizer. The compact dumpers excel at maneuvering around cramped construction sites on rough terrain. The PT2000, PT3000 and PT4000H dumpers are ideal for landscaping, golf course construction, nurseries, cemeteries and other applications.
For example, the site dumpers can be used to load sand bunkers for golf courses, Ferguson says. It only takes one load for a bunker with the site dumper, as opposed to using a tractor or regular dump truck, which would take many loads.â€
In addition, Ferguson says The site dumpers are easy to operate and very reliable.â€ With a fully hydrostatic drive to all four wheels, the PT site dumpers are easily maneuvered with a single joystick.
The Terex PT2000, PT3000 and PT4000H site dumpers are specifically designed to help contractors move material more efficiently and cost effectively around jobsites. The dumpers can easily be matched with a variety of other products, such as a loader backhoe or excavator, to increase jobsite productivity. The strength of the dump body, excellent service access, easy operation and durable versatility provides the operator greater uptime efficiency.
Once contractors have tried these site dumpers, they won™t know how they lived without them,â€ Ferguson says.
