By buying used dump trucks business owners can really save a lot of money on this particular type of investment. However first time buyers of used dump trucks have to make sure that they will find and choose the best pre-owned vehicles. Below are some helpful tips you should keep in mind when you are searching for and choosing high quality used dump trucks for the first time: Always scour every source you have access to when looking for used dump trucks for sale. This means checking out every website that sells used this type of truck dealers that have physical business premises where you can look at these trucks and even joining online and traditional auctions. By doing so you will have a wider range of brands models or types to choose from and you can also compare prices. You will also have a better chance of looking for and investing in the best used dump truck available in the market.
Consider your average weigh hauling requirements. This means that you need to come up with an estimate of the average payload capacity that the truck will be carrying and transporting. This step involves identifying your gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR): an important factor in determining the size of your payloads. This important factor also has a direct bearing on choice of number and load capacities of the axles of the truck which should always stay within legal weight limits. Choose the best engine. Buying a dump truck that has more horsepower than you really need can just lead you to waste money. This is because you will be spending more money on fuel. If you will not be pushing GVWR limits choosing a truck that has a smaller engine may be the smartest option. In addition if you are operating on mostly flat jobsites and roads you dont really need to invest in a truck that has extra horsepower.
On uneven and rough terrain conditions the weight of the payload can cause undue strain and fatigue on the frame. Such work conditions are better handled by an articulated truck. An ADT has a hinge between the cab and the dump box yet unlike the semi trailer designs the cab is a permanent fixture and not a separate vehicle. As you can see the design of the various types of commercial dump vehicles greatly affects the trucks ability to function in different hauling and dumping situations. Being familiar with the different designs is imperative if looking to purchase a dump truck in an unstable economy. Study the different types do your homework and select the best truck for your business!
Standard Truck The standard dump truck design is a truck frame mounted with an open box bed that can be raised via a hydraulic pump located between the cab and the dump body; the tailgate on the end is typically hinged. The standard truck is single bodied with one front axle and one or more rear axles either powered or not powered. The short wheelbase of the standard truck makes the truck more maneuverable than other dump vehicle types with higher capacity. It is ideally suited for road driving with a good variable capacity.
