TITLE
Changing dumper tyres
ARTICLE
Changing dumper wheels used to be a dirty, hazardous task. Hydraulic jacks and wooden blocks had to be carried and placed under the back axle and the vehicle was then jacked up.

The Dove Holes solution was to design a frame that utilises the hydraulic system of the machine, allowing it to raise its wheels off the ground. When raised, the body pins are put in position and the machine switched off so the work can be carried out.

This removes the manual handling problems and also the difficulty of changing a tyre on uneven ground.
