Collier Haulage lifted by versatility of Thompsons tipper16 May 2018


Collier Haulage has taken delivery of a highly specified Bulkmaster tipper, from Thompsons – the first time the operator has moved away from general-purpose tipper bodies.

The Cowdenbeath-based operator’s new addition is mounted on its fleet-standard Volvo FMX 8x4 chassis. The

aluminium Bulkmaster body combines a standard bulker design with a heavy-duty floor, as well as a comprehensive ‘tar specification’ that includes a split tailgate and full side panel insulation.

The 24.4m3 Bulkmaster has 1.7m high insulated sides, an 8mm hardened aluminium floor, an air-operated split tailgate and a sliding front to back Harsh sheeting system.

The resulting body can handle a variety of payloads, providing versatility for Collier’s operations.

“We went to Thompsons because we knew that they could take our traditional body design to the next level,” says Duncan Collier, company director.

“With their proven design and production expertise we also recognise that Thompsons bodies deliver real quality and long-term productivity. The result is exactly what we wanted.”
