British Tipper Lorries
Home > British Tipper Lorries
Tipper lorries have been part and
parcel of road transport since the
beginnings of the age of motor
vehicles. In fact their roots are in
horse-drawn carts, which were built to
tip by balance and gravity. For many
years, and probably still today, the
tipper lorry was seen as a dirty,
well-worn, poorly maintained and
overloaded example of road haulage,
not particularly beloved by the
general public.

As they are used in all forms from
lightweight four-wheelers to maximum
capacity artics, carrying almost any
commodity that could be loaded in
bulk, tipper lorries could be said to
be the backbone of British industrial
requirements. All makes of lorries
have been used as tippers, with no
exceptions, providing a great variety
for the road transport enthusiast.
Many endure short, hard-worked lives,
while others soldier on to greater
longevity, perhaps engaged in long-
distance work. As time has passed,
lorries have been allowed to carry
more weight and become larger and, as
a consequence, more powerful. For the
transport enthusiast this brought an
even bigger variety of types, up to 44
tonnes gross weight, which Bill Reid,
with nearly 200 unpublished images,
shows in this fascinating book.
