Sambron GM20 removable skip dumper

Post #1 by Bobcat Americas Best » Sat Sep 16, 2017 1:25 pm

Hi everyone, does anyone have any information on the Sambron GM20 dumper. The skip/dumper could be lowered to the ground by 2 hydraulic arms. Does anyone know where there might be one for sale as I fancy a restoration project. thanks

I'll bet it was not very handy in poor ground conditions minus the skip.

I don't think many if any were sold in the UK you would have to see if you can find one in France. I know that when we at Weatherills sold Sambron we never sold any or any parts for one.

Yes thought they would be rare in the UK, great concept though. Merlo's Cingo has adopted the same method on their mini dumper. Thanks for the brochure Johnson Dumper, much appreciated

Another piece of history John. Weatherill's own contribution to entente cordiale!

Did you see this BTW?

Hi,
There's nothing new!
George Fowell produced a version of their GF dumper with a detachable skip for concrete many years ago. No hydraulics then :!:

With rear wheel drive and a 20 stone driver no problems with traction when skip removed for the GF !
