• Heavy-Duty Dump Trucks: These dump trucks have a lifting capacity of more than 30 tons and are ideal for transporting heavy materials such as rock or ore. They are used in opencast mines and quarries. These dump trucks are not suitable for road traffic and are also not approved.

• Articulated Dump Trucks: These dump trucks have an articulated joint that gives them greater maneuverability and allows them to navigate tight, uneven terrain. They are ideal for use on construction sites with limited space and in mines.

Applications of dump trucks

Selection of dump trucks

When looking to buy or rent a dump truck, there are a few factors to consider to ensure you choose the right model for your needs. This includes:

• Lifting Capacity: Make sure the dump truck has sufficient lifting capacity to haul the materials you need.

• Size: Make sure the dump truck is big enough to hold the materials you need to move.

• Manoeuvrability: If you intend to use the truck in tight, uneven terrain, you should prefer an articulated version.

• Type of unloading: Dump trucks are available in different variants with regard to the tipping device. By default, the dump truck dumps the load backwards. But there are also variants that can tilt to the side or even tilt to several sides. A special form is also the front tipper, where the driver sits behind the loading trough. The type of tipping that makes the most sense for their work must be included in the decision.

• Maintenance and Repair: Ensure that the dump truck can be easily maintained and repaired. Be aware of factors such as access to replacement parts and the availability of repair and maintenance professionals.

• Cost: Compare the costs of different dump truck models to ensure you find a model that is within your budget.
