I have seen similar here like the beavertail with the side tipper. It was for carrying mowers ect and so they could put cuttings and chippings ect on and still tip them off.

look nicely made units Aiden, but those little uns are still gonna be class 1/C&E in the UK, I'd have thought? :rolleyes:
Bet they are not cheap either :eek:

Well, those rigid trucks are certainly an approach you don't see here in the U.K.!

No chassis! Using the body as the chassis:cool:, reducing bed height and weight. Very clever....

I wonder how they couple up to the original chassis at the front? And I wonder what the truck manufacturers think to it all?

If you go through the pictures there is a few of the front chassis, all very clever like you say!

Certainly look good. The reduced bed height and reduced body weight can only be a bonus.
The mini arctics look great, just suit me, but as Graham says, bet they are class 1 HGV and operators licence here.

Re: Interesting Dutch beavertails and mini artics.
 
To be fair Gra, I think it's pretty innovative, and certainly is thinking outside the box, when it comes to building a truck for the job in hand. So I think you've got to hand it to them really, not only for the innovation, but to have the rules and legislation that allows it for bespoke builds, I would be surprised if you could build that sort of thing in the U.K., regardless of cost, but I may be wrong on that?
As for the cost, yes it will be expensive. But the Dutch appear to run some very smart and very well thought out trucks generally, that they appear to take great pride in, possibly the Dutch in general value their trucking industry much higher than we do in the U.K., and can earn the money to pay for the impressive equipment they run.
