How Could Grab Hire Improve Productivity?


Just like 4×4 trucks, the presence of tipper-grab vehicles on a job site can have a massive effect on your crew’s productivity and the efficiency of your entire site. But how? 

How Could a Tipper Grabber Improve Productivity?

The grabber! 

Most tippers are used to transport material, such as aggregates and soil. For example, a construction company could use a tipper to transport aggregates to a nearly-finished construction site. Those aggregates will be tipped out of the tipper and then moved to their specific final resting places, often by hand or by using a wheelbarrow.

This process takes up a considerable amount of time and manpower – time and manpower which could be saved or used on more important efforts. Having a grabber,  in contrast, means that the material can be moved with a lot more precision, negating the need for someone to move the material.

Likewise, just as it requires a considerable amount of manpower to properly empty a tipper, it also requires a considerable amount of manpower to fill a tipper. A tipper grabber makes this process much easier. The tipper’s grabber means that much more material can be moved with each grabber-full. In turn, this means that the entire tipper grabber will be full and ready for action much sooner than a tipper without a grabber — meaning that the work will start and end sooner.
