Popular Dump Truck Terms

When picking a way to haul your garbage or construction materials, you need to know what the truck you are potentially selecting it capable of. There are some specialized terms associated with dump trucks. Following are some of those terms that can help you in your selection process.

  • Aggregate – Aggregate commonly refers to construction materials like sand or gravel.
  • Articulated Dump Truck – An articulated dump truck tows a separate dump box, which is attached to the cab. This is similar to a semi-truck except that a semi-truck’s trailer can be detached. If you are transporting materials across rough or otherwise awkward terrain, this may be the type of truck to pick.
  • Hydraulic Ram – A hydraulic ram is commonly found on many different kinds of dump trucks. Put simply, a hydraulic ram uses water pressure to create kinetic energy and move parts of the truck, usually the dumper.
  • Pneumatic System – Pneumatic systems are commonly found on trucks instead of or in addition to a hydraulic ram. These systems use compressed air or gas to allow the movement of truck parts.
  • Side Dump Truck – A side dump truck empties to the side of the trailer rather than behind it. The benefit of these vehicles is that they are less prone to tipping over during dumping than some of the more standard trucks.
  • Standard Dump Truck – A standard dump truck is a solid vehicle, which makes it easier to maneuver. A standard dump truck has a dump body rather than a flatbed. Most commercial garbage trucks are of this variety.
  • Transfer Dump Truck – A transfer dump truck simply means that it tows an additional trailer. These are most common where highway weight restrictions are more stringent.

    Truck dumping services are very common in the United States. This is due to all of the garbage and waste collection that is required. Essentially, large vehicles are used by professionals to collect everything from construction debris and residential building waste to commercial aggregates and job site materials. This way the rubbish can be moved on an articulated vehicle or flatbed trailer to a dump site. The individuals who drive these large hydraulic trucks to haul waste have received special training. There are many facets to trucking dumps and debris collection. A few important factors that dump truck services and specialists must keep in mind are the weight of the loads, how far they must be transported, and what equipment is needed to move the garbage or debris. A construction contractor will commonly require a trucking dump service of some kind in order to assist with the removal of building aggregate and debris. After all, this material must be transferred to a designated dumping area. This type of job may call for a flatbed truck or a dumping vehicle with sides or walls to hold rubbish in. The cost of a dumping service changes depending on what materials need to be hauled and how long the task takes. You can learn more about trucking dump services, professional drivers, truck trailers, and waste collection company locations by using the internet. In order to find a trucking dump that accommodates your needs, hone in on the type of service you are interested in. This will help you find out all you need to know about trucking dump sites, the vehicle equipment used in this business, and the collection of construction site debris.
