Towerlight launch new Gladiator range of mini-dumpers

TowerLight, the Italy based global supplier of construction equipment, have launched a new line of mini-dumpers ideally suited for landscape, light agricultural and building contracts.

Branded under TowerLight’s Gladiator range, these new products made their UK debut at the recent SED construction equipment exhibition.

The Gladiator Dumpers are built to transport all types of building material, including bricks and concrete. They are also ideally suited for the disposal of soil, aggregates and turf. Each dumper is manufactured from very strong steel sheet, yet remain light, agile and easy to use, particularly in confined areas.

There are currently five individual mini-dumpers within the Gladiator range.

First from the production line is the diminutive Dumper-Truck. Four pneumatic wheels drive this hardy machine via a Honda 5.5hp petrol engine. The machine has a load capacity of 250kg and the complete unit weighs just 95kg, making it ideal for garden centres and small landscaping projects.

Working alongside the Dumper-Truck is the tracked Dumper 550, featuring an impressive load capacity of 500kg. A Honda GX200 petrol engine powers the 550 and a hydraulic system is fitted for tilting the bucket. A simple joystick operation makes the 550 an easy machine to control.

For larger projects TowerLight have introduced the rugged Dumper 850. With its heavy load capacity of 850kg and hydraulic operation, the 850 is just right for the professional user. The 850 is fitted with twin tracks and is by powered by a Honda 8hp petrol engine. It weighs in at 390kg.

In addition to the standard Dumper 850, TowerLight have developed the Dumper 850PRO. Boasting the same features and benefits of the standard 850, the 850PRO is fitted with a useful, hydraulically operated, automatic self-loading system. The 850PRO is slightly heavier at 490kg.

Completing the Gladiator mini-dumper line-up is the Dumper 850TOP. Featuring all the refinements of the 850 and 850PRO, the Dumper 850TOP has been fitted with a hydraulic top-loader, making the 850PRO perfect for transferring waste material into skips and lorries.

TowerLight are expecting keen interest in their Gladiator mini-dump truck range from tool and plant rental firms, landscapers, farmers, builders and local authorities. The machines are available to purchase in the UK direct from the manufacturer and through designated dealers in Europe and worldwide.
