What is the maximum capacity of a tipper truck?

Truck trailer body capacity can be made to order, based on client specifications. Alternatively, we can determine trailer capacity by matching it to truck height.
How do you convert a prime mover into a tipper truck?
Here at AA Diesel Truck Bodies, we are able to convert prime movers into tipper trucks by performing precise conversions usually including wheelbase modifications. Conversions require high precision so we always ensure that we consult with our clients for exact measurements and requirements throughout the process.
What equipment is used to build the truck bodies?
Here at AA Diesel Truck Bodies, all of our truck bodies are made in-house with state-of the-art specialised machinery and equipment. Our highly trained technicians use cutting edge technology to fabricate our truck bodies including overhead mounted ceiling cranes and superior welding tools.
Can the truck bodies be adjusted to fit any make of truck?
Based on each consultation, we evaluate if it is more suitable to make wheelbase modifications to the existing truck or to adjust the size of the desired truck body. Wheelbase modifications can be performed to accommodate almost any tipper truck body including both chassis extensions and shortening to suit your desired truck body specifications.
Do I have to travel to Doveton to have a tipper body installed?
Because all of our truck and trailer bodies are custom made and built to suit individual requirements, we do require that your truck is built here at our Doveton workshop to ensure that the body is built to the highest standards. Although this is the case, you do not have to travel personally to our workshop and if you prefer to have your truck transported or professionally moved by your chosen contractor, we can help you organise this.
