An articulated truck is a heavy-duty dump truck used to transport heavy loads. The all-wheel-drive capability makes articulated trucks a great option for transporting loads over rough terrains. The name “articulated” comes from the cab and rear dump meeting at an articulated point, controlling the capability of the truck to pivot. On the other hand, rigid dump trucks, have a chassis comprised of one continuous piece of metal. Articulated trucks are mainly used as soil and aggregate dumpers, but the chassis can facilitate many other applications including mining, construction, and even military. If you need to maneuver over rugged and sometimes tight terrains, you need an articulated truck.
