The specs and dimensions of a dump truck you choose should be suitable to your job requirements. To find dimensions, weight and specs of a dump truck on our database, you can search for its model, manufacturer or industry. Some of the specs to consider when buying a dump truck is capacity and material. The capacity of a dump truck should meet the requirements of your job environment. If you transport a lot of materials for example, you require a large dump truck to avoid making many trips.
When it comes to the material, dump trucks are either made of steel or aluminium. A dump truck made of aluminium weighs less meaning you can carry more materials on it because there’s less weight dedicated to the body. While the one made of steel is heavier, it's more durable. If you decide to buy a used dump truck, inspect it thoroughly to ensure it will serve you well.
