If you have been researching different heavy equipment sale on the Internet for your next construction or mining project, you might have come across different types of dump trucks. Dump trucks are trucks that have a bucket or container that transports and hauls aggregates and materials required for different off-site purposes. There are various types of dump trucks available in the market. Here are a few types of dump trucks.
Standard or Common Dump Trucks
Standard or common dump trucks are the regular dump trucks that have a dumping container at the rear. The container is lifted up hydraulically over the end in order to empty the dump container. These trucks are available in several sizes and configurations that are used for different hauling and transporting purposes for construction, mining, quarrying, forestry, waste management, and other projects. You can check various common dump trucks available in our heavy equipment sale inventory.
Transfer Dump Trucks
Transfer dump trucks are different from other types of dump trucks as they have additional trailers attached to them. These separate trailers are pulled by a standard dump truck or by any other truck. Each trailer attached to the truck contains a movable and detachable cargo container or bucket. This movable characteristic makes these types of dump trucks ideal to move material from one location to another manually or with the help of other equipment. With multiple trailers attached to the truck, you can transport different kinds of material in one single go.
Side Dump Trucks
Side dump trucks have the fastest unloading capacity with the help of side dumping mechanism. These trucks tilt sideways to dump the material into the ground, which means a large area is available to unload the raw construction material. Side dump trucks have one of the largest capacity for these type of trucks. If your construction site is large and has enough space for bigger heavy equipment to move, side dump trucks are ideal for your project as they are very long and have limited maneuverability
Off-Road Dump Trucks
Off-road or articulated dump trucks are mostly used for quarrying and mining projects, waste handling purposes, or in situations where a large amount of material and aggregate needs to be moved. As the name suggests, these dump trucks are perfect for off-road and rough terrains. Their large size and heavy load capacity, say 40-60 tonnes, makes them ideal for such terrains. These large dump trucks are suitable for long-distance transport and hauling but are less recommended for being used over roads or developed areas.
Some more types of dump trucks such as super dump trucks, semi-trailer end dump truck, truck, and pup, double and triple trailer bottom dump truck, etc. are available in our heavy equipment sale.
