UPDATE: A man trapped in the cabin of his 20 tonne vehicle as it teetered precariously on a cliff edge at a quarry in Brisbane's north west has been freed.

The man was trapped for more than an hour and a half after rolling the vehicle at the Keperra site about 7.20am.

Paramedics have assessed him and determined he is uninjured.
