Side Discharge Efficiency Besides the numerous safety features that come with the use of a side discharge dump truck companies that own them have experienced improved efficiency as well. Not only can these units haul just as much or sometimes more than their rear-discharging counterparts they are also easier to unload and can complete the job in tighter spaces. Because the bed can be lifted until it is completely upright something that is impossible with a standard rear dump truck because of the threat of tipping over bed contents are more completely discharged. This is especially convenient when hauling wet or sticky material as well as other loads that are hard to remove from the beds of standard dump trucks.
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.
Finally put some thought into the kind of transmission you want your truck to have. Dump trucks that have manual transmissions have a wider range of gear options and are less expensive. Trucks with automatic transmission with flexible torque converters make up for their fewer gears and have their own advantages. They do not require shifting and eliminates the expense of maintaining and replacing clutches. However they are costlier. To make the right decision in buying a truck with manual or automatic transmission consider the skills level of the driver and the terrain where the vehicle will be usually driven on.
Construction companies prepare sites and assemble houses buildings and roads; they build communities and expand cities. Without the work of construction companies the communities we live and work in would not exist. Now imagine running a construction company without a commercial dump truck; that image just does not compute! Function Commercial dump trucks comprise the nucleus of the construction industry. They are the equipment of choice when it comes to transporting any loose building material such as gravel sand or fill dirt to a construction site as well as carrying out any waste material such as excavated dirt. It can transport any loose material in large amounts quickly and safely to and from any location. They are essential to the daily functioning of construction companies.
