Caged tippers are small to medium-sized vehicles which are perfect for a range of waste collection roles within your municipal fleet. These specialised trucks feature a cage structure built directly onto the bed or chassis of the vehicle. This cage can be filled with a variety of loose waste materials such as rubble or garden waste, which can then be safely transported to its destination making them a useful addition to your waste collection fleet.

If you need to add a used caged tipper truck to your commercial fleet, Endurance Vehicle Solutions are guaranteed to be able to find the right model and specification to suit your needs. We specialise in supplying commercial refuse vehicles and have vehicles for both hire and sale, so we can help you find the right vehicle at the right price.

Many of our vehicles have been operated by local councils and we ensure that any vehicle we sell has been fully serviced and maintained to the highest standards throughout its lifespan. This means you can be sure that when you buy a used caged tipper from Endurance VS you’re guaranteed to be purchasing an asset that’s ready to use for years to come.

What should you look for in a used Caged Tipper?

Many different manufacturers produce cage tippers, meaning they come in a range of configurations and specifications, so it’s important that you have a good understanding of what your business requirements are before you make your purchase. However, in most cases, cage tippers are based on similar design principles regardless of who builds them. The cage is attached to the chassis of the vehicle but is able to tip to at an almost 90-degree angle thanks to a powerful hydraulic system, which can be used to empty any waste that has been collected.

When buying a used cage tipper you should thoroughly inspect the chassis and bodywork of the vehicle to ensure that it’s in good condition with no obvious signs of excessive rusting. It is important to remember though that due to the nature of their operation, cage tippers are more likely to receive knocks and minor superficial damage when compared to other types of commercial vehicles. This shouldn’t necessarily be a cause for concern provided the damage doesn’t affect the chassis or the vehicles’ operation.

Another area of your cage tipper that you should inspect prior to purchase is the hydraulic system. If not properly looked after these can become warn and develop faults. Ideally try to see this in operation and listen out for any unexpected noises which may be a sign that something isn’t right. At Endurance VS, we service all the vehicles in the fleet before we sell them, so this won’t be an issue when buying from us.

Cage tippers can be purchased with either a manual or automatic transmission, which may make a difference to your operators if they are frequently having to stop and start whilst collecting waste, so thought should be given as to which best meets the needs of your business. You should also consider the engine requirements of your cage tipper when choosing your vehicle. If you intend to operate it in a ULEZ or clean air zone you should try to find an engine that meets the necessary Euro Emission standards.

Why buy from Endurance?
