The Rich History of Tipper Hire Vehicles


Tipper hire vehicles have a long and rich history, which has helped them become a staple of the construction industry since the 19th century.
Dump trucks were first used on farms in Western Europe, tippers were added to them around 1896 with the vehicles then motorised by manufacturers in the United States in 1910.
The demand for tipper trucks grew during the First World War, with hydraulics added to them just a few years later.
