Classifications Of Dump Trucks

 

 

Dump trucks are heavy duty vehicles that are manufactured with an open-box-like rear part and it is used to carry different types of materials such as sand from the shores of rivers and lakes, bricks from the place where they are made, gravel and stones from one location to the desired site where these material are to be used for purposes such as construction. The dump trucks are manufactured in very many different forms such they each have different specifications of speeds of movement, ability to withstand the weight of different types of loads, ability to move in different terrains especially mountainous where most of the material they carry is found and also the physical size that makes it possible for them to be used in their different environments such as mining sites where minerals are t o be transported, construction sites for delivery of material for building and excavation sites for hauling and moving overlying materials to reach artifacts.

 

There are some few classifications of the dump trucks that are commonly sold on the market and used for the most common purposes such as in mining and construction industry. There is the common dump truck which is the basic truck that can be used for general purposes of carrying heavy material such as sand for construction sites, stones and pebbles for road construction, minerals being carried to the processing industry and also bricks being taken to building sites because it has a simple structure made for less rugged terrain such as fair slopes and it has between two and four sets of wheels in pairs and a hydraulic system fitted on the front side of the carrier to drop its content onto the surface.

 

The other example of dump trucks is the transfer at http://rapidtruckingnaples.com/AboutUs.html which is only used to pull a trailer which has been filled with the material that is to be transported to the destination because it does not have a trailer body that is fixed on its rear side permanently and it leaves the trailer at the site after delivery because it does not have hydraulics mechanisms to dispose the material at the site like the standard truck does.

 

The third type is the off road dump truck which is a physically big truck that cannot be used on a road that is also being used by other cars because of the danger of creating accidents and it is therefore used in different terrain that requires hauling of very large loads and causing no distraction to other people and such places include on mining sites at mountain slopes. The other dump truck at http://rapidtruckingnaples.com/AboutUs.html is the side dump truck fitted with a hydraulic system on one side so that material is dumped onto the other side when lifted.
