Dump Trucks


Dump trucks quickly moved products from one location to another. For the best results, buyers match the size of the vehicle to the job. If the dump box is too small, extra trips are required. A larger-than-necessary truck cost more to purchase and operate. Many drivers are adamant about the make of their vehicle and feel the truck they drive is far superior to any other on the road.

Matching Dump Trucks to the Job

To find the right truck and box for the job is simply a mathematical calculation. Dump trucks are rated in different classes depending on the weight they can legally carry. Common classes are:
•    Classes 7 and 8, over 26,000 pounds,
•    Classes 4 to 6, 14,000 to 26,000 pounds and
•    Classes 1 through 3, up to 14,000 pounds.

Dump trucks have special reinforced frames supporting the weight of the box, hydraulic system and materials. When purchasing new, buyers build the units for their needs. However, purchasers of used equipment are luckier. Someone has already put the box and truck together. These buyers simply find the size in the price range they want.
