Twinca Dumpers Are a Shrewd Investment for Limited-Access Projects

Published: 10/10, 2022

Jason Franken, CEO of Super City Concrete Cuttings says that the company’s purchase of the Twinca ES-800 dumper has been a shrewd investment for limited access projects. Though developed and manufactured in Denmark, the series of battery driven mini-dumpers has found its way to Australian concrete cutters and demolition companies.

“Our Twinca dumpers are operator friendly and is easy to manoeuvre and operate,” Franken says. “Prior to purchasing the Twinca Dumper this type of work was completed with wheelbarrows and a lot of manual labor.”

Manual handling tasks need to be risk assessed regularly and providing mechanical controls in place of physical labour has proven to reduce incidents and injuries in the workplace, adds Franken. The Twinca dumper has a load capacity of 1,763 lb (800kg) with superior productivity to manual labour. One project where the Twinca Dumper showed its stuff required the removal of 10 yd3 (8m3) cubic meters of soil and rock to expose a concrete footing at the base of a hospital wall. The hospital had specified minimal noise and vibration during the excavation process. The Twinca Dumper and a Brokk 160 provide this capability due to the electric power capabilities for each unit.

Access from the excavation zone to the skip bin was 115 ft (35m) long which involved traversing a set of stairs. A temporary ramp was installed over the stairs to allow the Twinca dumper to safely manage the incline when loaded.

The excavation and removal of eight cubic meters 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.

“Working smarter not harder makes limited-access projects such as this run smoothly and safely,” says Franken.
