Twinca Dumpers a Shrewd Investment for Limited Access Projects
Published: 30/12, 2022
Jason Franken at Super City Concrete Cuttings states that the purchase of the Twinca ES-800 dumper has been a shrewd investment for limited access projects. The Twinca series, which are battery driven mini dumpers, has been developed and manufactured in Denmark but have become appreciated by Australian concrete cutters and demolition companies.
“Our Twinca dumpers are operator friendly and are easy to maneuver and operate,” says Super City CEO Jason Franken. “Prior to purchasing the Twinca dumper this type of work was completed with wheelbarrows and a lot of manual labor.”
The Twinca dumper has a load capacity of 1,763 lb (800kg) providing superior productivity to manual labor.
One contracted project that Franken shows as an example required the removal of 10 yd3 (8m3) of soil and rock to expose a concrete footing at the base of a hospital wall. Pairing the battery-powered Twinca dumper with an electric Brokk 160 met the hospital’s requirement for minimal noise and vibration during the excavation process. Because the 115-ft (35m) route from the excavation zone to the skip bin involved traversing a set of stairs, a temporary ramp was installed to allow the Twinca dumper to safely manage the incline when loaded.
The excavation and removal of the material was completed in six hours. The Twinca dumper started with a fully charged battery and at the end of the shift had 45% charge capacity remaining.
