What is a dump truck?

Dump trucks are used to move or transport materials such as dirt, sand, rock, gravel, garbage or crushed stone. It is the safest and fastest method of transporting loose materials from the site and is especially important in the early stages of a project as the ground is being prepared to begin work. Before the project can proceed, a significant amount of damaged material needs to be removed before work can continue. Materials that are not scattered on site can be problematic and potentially dangerous to anyone on site, so a powerful dump truck is essential.

The most popular names for making rigid haul trucks include Caterpillar, Liebherr, Terex and a few others. Terex sold their line of rigid haul trucks to Volvo, which still sells them as Terex-branded trucks.

The history of the development of concrete dump trucks

British car manufacturer Thornycroft came up with the tipper truck. In the late 1800s, when his company began selling carts that tilted back when detached from the hitch, emptying themselves of their belongings. Then in 1910, American manufacturers pushed the industry into the future by automating the dumping process. World War I was a key factor in the history of dump trucks as it created the need for trucks to pull larger loads and it was during this time that hydraulic systems were first used in trucks. By the end of 1958, the largest single-engine dump truck was on the market with a 600-horsepower engine.
