Although sedans and minivans can be used to transfer cargo, they are not always enough to carry soil, concrete powder, or even timber. When it comes to getting heavy stuff from point A to B, dump trucks are usually the only option. Dump trucks are heavy-duty vehicles powered by very large engines. Most dump trucks also have powerful hydraulic systems located between the “cab” of the truck and the dump body, allowing it to lift heavy loads.

Dump trucks are used for large-scale cargo transportation. In construction, large quantities of materials such as gravel, sand, cement and other building materials can be transported through dump trucks. In some instances, dump trucks can also be used for residential purposes. For instance, people who want to throw out stuff like stacks of boxes, old furniture, and gardening materials can rent a dump truck and have the junk hauled off their lawns.

They might look the same to someone unfamiliar with trucks, but dump trucks come in different types. Standard dump trucks, transfer dump trucks, and side dump trucks are some of the popular types of trucks used for commercial purposes. Each of these has their own features, cargo limits, and uses.

Standard dump trucks have a framework operated with a hydraulic-powered ram lift. The lift is usually found between the dump body and the driving cab. These commercial trucks Ontario residents see usually have either six or ten wheels. These trucks have one front axle and one or more rear axles for support when the truck has light load. The largest standard dump truck is called a centipede and has two powered axles, one steering axle, and four lifting axles.

Transfer dump trucks, are much like standard trucks, except these dump trucks Ontario construction sites use has an attached trailer in tow. Transfer dump trucks can be used to transport gravel, sand, asphalt, and wood chips. The attached trailer is hydraulic-powered and connected to the main dump body. Some variants of these trucks often have two or more attached trailers to accommodate more load.

Unlike most trucks that lift the dump body backwards, side dump trucks Toronto companies hire dump cargo to either the left or right side of the vehicle. Compared to other trucks, side dump trucks can accommodate m transfer greater loads easily and quickly. They are also more stable than other types of dump trucks, which means they can avoid tilting better than most trucks can.
