In charge of all transport operations of bulk materials, the dump truck can be rigid or articulated.
The articulated truck is four or six-wheel drive, with a body capacity of 20-40 tons. The handling isn’t executed by steering axle but by the orientation of the entire cabin, engine, gearbox and chassis because the axle is articulated by a pivot point and hydraulic steering cylinders. The Powershift transmission allows the dump truck to reach travel speeds up to 70 km/h according to the fastest.
Through its articulated mechanism that allows it to tilt on slopes, the articulated hauler is particularly popular on construction sites with an unstable soil.
For loading operations the combination excavator + dump truck is the most common. The truck is positioned parallel to the excavator. Body emptying is either assured by tilting or either by the ejector mechanism.
The rigid dump truck is used in open quarry applications because of its high payload capacity and volume; this makes it the must-have machine in the extraction process. The largest models are able to carry up to 350 tons of payload. Finally, the truck can be modified in a water dispenser, soil stabilizer or even supplier unit at large construction sites.
