A Dumper is a dump truck, used especially in construction sites, quarries for the transport of sand, gravel etc. They are divided into articulated, rigid and tracked
Rigid dump trucks have been designed for use on large construction sites and quarries or mining sectors; they have high load capacities, ranging from 50 tons to 400 tons. They have considerable size and dimensions that make them suitable in particular working areas.
Articulated dump trucks are used for the transport of large loads of material in a rugged terrain; they are composed of two sections: the drive (tractor) and the trailer with an hydraulic joint that increases the steering capacity, and makes it suitable for environments with dirt and rough roads. It has an inferior load capacity than rigid dump.
