A dump truck is a truck whose bed can be elevated at the front end to allow its contents to be dumped out the back. A dump truck is typically used to haul construction waste, sand, gravel, and other similar items. Most dump trucks have an open box bed on them which is able to be raised by hydraulics so the contents may be deposited behind the truck.
Differences within each type of dump truck varies based on the type of material that it will need to move and dump out later. Certain hydraulics are needed for each type of material and is based on the job it’s intended for. Dump trucks with a shorter wheelbase are able to maneuver around more than higher capacity dump trucks on a semi-trailer. It’s important to understand what type of dump truck is best for the work it will be used for.
