Dump Trucks are the backbone of any contractor's fleet. They come in a rage of designs and sizes as varied as the loads they haul. The Articulated Dump Truck, or ADT, is a heavy-duty, off-road vehicle, ideal for rough terrain, with a hinge between the cab and the dump box that gives it maneuverability. Other varieties include the standard dump truck; the semi-end dump truck, a tractor-trailer combination in which the trailer itself contains a hydraulic hoist; the transfer dump truck, essentially a standard truck that pulls one or more separate trailers; a Superdump, which is a straight dump truck equipped with a liftable, load-bearing axle; the side dump truck (SDT), which has hydraulic rams that h tilt the dump box onto its side; and the winter service vehicles, which plow and pour salt on snow-covered roads. Whatever your hauling needs, the listings at Construction Equipment Guide will steer you toward the right vehicle.
