What are the different types of dump trucks and trailers?
The different types of dump trucks and trailers used to move dirt include:
1. End Dump Trailers –
End dump trailers are the most common type of trailer for moving dirt. These trailers have a large hopper at the rear of the trailer that is used for loading and unloading dirt and other materials. The hopper can be raised and lowered by hydraulic arms, allowing it to be filled from the ground or from another truck. End dump trailers are usually used in large construction projects, such as highway and bridge construction.
2. Side Dump Trailers –
Side dump trailers are similar to end dump trailers, but they have a hopper on the side of the trailer instead of at the rear. These trailers are used to move large quantities of dirt, gravel, and other materials. Side dump trailers are often used in large–scale construction projects, such as road building and bridge construction.
3. Transfer Trailers – Transfer trailers are used to move smaller amounts of dirt and other materials. These trailers are equipped with a small hopper at the rear and a conveyor system that is used to transfer the dirt from the hopper to the truck bed. Transfer trailers are often used for residential and commercial projects where large quantities of dirt must be moved.
