Dump trucks are used for transporting various types of loose materials such as sand gravel or dirt which are used for construction. Aside from construction materials dump tucks are also utilized for collecting trash or garbage. They are generally equipped with dump hoist which are usually hydraulically operated. The dump hoist allows the deposit of the truck contents on the ground at the site of delivery. Different Types of Dump Trucks Dump trucks differ in configurations to suit various types of tasks and here are some of them: Standard Dump Truck This type of unit is a full truck chassis complete with a mounted dump body to the frame. It makes use of a hydraulic ram which is used to raise the dump body. This hydraulic ram is mounted forward of the front bulkhead specifically located between the truck cab and the dump body. This type of truck is commonly utilized for transporting construction materials.
Semi Trailer End Dump Truck The semi end dump is a tractor-trailer combination where the trailer has the hydraulic hoist. It is advantageous because of its large capacity as well as its ability to rapidly unload. The disadvantage is that it can be unstable when the dumping location is uneven as well as be difficult to back up. Semi Trailer Bottom Dump Truck The semi trailer bottom truck is similar to the semi trailer end truck in basic design. The trailer differs by having a clam shell type dump gate in the belly of the trailer. This gives this truck the ability to lay down material in a linear row. In addition this version is maneuverable in reverse.
Transfer Truck A transfer dump truck is basically a standard dump truck that pulls a separate trailer which can also be loaded. When the main dump box is empty the secondary trailer will roll onto the empty main dump box to dump its load thereby maximizing payload capacity without sacrificing maneuverability.Super Truck To solve the payload restriction in some states the super dump truck is equipped with a trailing axle. The trailing axle is retractable and is used only when the payload is over the maximum payload limit. The trailing axle is designed to carry the extra weight of the payload distributing the weight to a much wider ground area in order to meet the load limit.
Typically the truck goes to a quarry or other supplier to be loaded with needed loose materials. The dump bed is open so sometimes a protective cover may be placed over the load to keep debris from falling out while the material is being transported. At the construction site the truck releases its load at a specific point by opening the gate and lifting the dump bed via a hydraulic lift depositing the material usually in a pile on the ground. Structure Commercial dump trucks are made similarly to other heavy duty trucks. The chassis is made of reinforced steel for durability. The power plant is a large diesel engine topped with a reinforced cockpit to house the driver. What distinguishes this truck and makes it the number one choice for construction companies is its hydraulically operated large capacity dump bed. Because the dump bed is hydraulically operated it makes unloading fast and easy without any additional worker required other than the driver and the spotter.
