Probably one of the most common trucks seen around almost every construction project, the dump truck is truly the workhorse of the construction industry, carrying loads of sand, gravel, aggregate, asphalt, demolition material – you name it – in and out of work sites. Depending on the region or part of the world you're in, these trucks are also known as gravel trucks, tipper lorry or truck, tip-truck, and tip-trailer to name just a few.
The dump truck is essentially a semi-truck with an attached dump trailer, which is powered by hydraulic pistons to lift or tilt the trailer, angling it in most cases towards the rear of the truck in order to dump its contents, and also allowing the truck to drive forward as it unloads. The dump truck's internal engine powers the both truck itself and the hydraulic piston mechanism.
The most commonly used dump trucks are designed and built to tackle the rough terrain of a construction site, but are also legal to drive on public roads and highways. There are also articulated and off-road dump trucks which are designed for more challenging terrain and stay for the most part on a project site and are not intended or allowed as over-the-road vehicles.
The most common dump trucks used in the aggregate and construction industries vary in axle configuration. One of the most basic decisions when looking to purchase a used dump truck for sale is determining what axle configurations you need as this will determine the payload capacity.
