Choosing Between a Tipper and Tipper Grab Hire


N.D Brown have been providing both tipper lorries and tipper grab hire to individuals, businesses and contractors right across the Midlands for over 40 years.

The strong demand for our vehicles means we provide the most up-to-date vehicle fleet on the market, which includes tipper and grab lorries.

For our latest blog, we are going to explore the advantages of both vehicles.

The Advantages of Grab and Tippy Lorries

When choosing the right kind of lorry for your project, it is important to know the advantages of each vehicle to ensure you choose the right one.

Advantages of Grab Lorries –

  • Grab lorries can be used on sites with limited access or space available
  • Loads can be tipped or grabbed off
  • A wide choice of vehicle sizes
  • Grab lorries are able to ‘grab’ waste from the site
  • Grab lorries can also deliver product and then remove waste from the site all in one journey

Advantages of Tipper Lorries –

  • The delivery of aggregate using a tipper lorry is cheaper than grab lorries
  • Tippers have a larger carrying capacity when compared to a similar-sized grab lorry
  • Tippers will provide a fast turnaround service
  • Our tipper lorries are able to deliver product and take away waste from the site in the same trip
