Overview

Most dump trucks have an open-box bed and operate by hydraulic lifts in the front that lift the bed and dump the contents rearward. They are used to haul anything from construction material, waste, aggregate, and dirt.

Common Types Of Dump Trucks

  • Standard: They have a chassis with a mounted bed. The front of the body contains a vertical hydraulic ram that raises the bed tipping the contents out.

  • Side: They have the fastest unloading capacity because of their side dumping mechanism. Side dump trucks are ideal for moving and dumping large amounts of material.

  • Transfer: It is the same as a standard dump truck, but it pulls a moveable cargo container on a trailer.

  • Off-Highway: These dump trucks are used for heavy equipment jobs like mining and heavy dirt hauling.
