The types of Dump Trucks


Articulated dump trucks (which are hinged between the cab and the dump box) are hugely prolific in the civil and mining industries. Articulated dump trucks are large, heavy-duty dump trucks that are used off-road to transport bulk loads across rough terrains. Moxy Engineering is a popular manufacturer of articulated dump trucks, over time many in the earthmoving industry have grown to use the generic term 'Moxy truck' to describe the articulated dump truck. Typically Moxy dump trucks have an all-wheel drive and when steering the machine, the operator will pivot the front cab section in relation to the dump box rear by using hydraulic rams. This allows its wheels to follow the same course and make a Moxy truck an ideal off-road vehicle. Articulated dump trucks are also excellent for major projects with a degree of limited space, due to their smaller turning circle. If you need to haul bulk materials from A to B for your next sub division, civil or mining project, consider one of iSeekplant's numerous articulated dump truck hire suppliers. There's a wide range of articulated dump trucks for hire from 10 tonne to 40+ tonne capacity. 

Site Dumpers and Front Tippers

If your project needs something more compact, a site dumper - or front tipper - might be your best bet. With the driver at the rear of the machine protected by roll-bars, these trucks' capacity range from 1 tonne to 10 tonne but are safe and sturdy in confined work areas. Site dumpers are handy compact machines used for off road cartage of loads on site and are available to hire in a variety of configurations. As an extremely versatile earthmoving machine, site dumper’s are engineered with an 180° swivel skip bin which allows for precise backfilling. Front tippers' ability to pivot sharply and oscillate allows you to get in and out of any tight access areas on your job, no matter how muddy or slippery the conditions. For all these reasons, site dumpers have become very popular in the civil and building industry. To get a site dump truck working on your next project, check out our reliable site dumper and front tipper dump truck hire suppliers listed on the iSeekplant database.

Rigid Rear

One of the most popular types of dump trucks to hire is a rigid rear dump truck, perfect for use in tandem with hydraulic excavators in mining. These machines are found only in mining and quarrying applications and can be literally enormous. Rigid rear dump trucks are perfect for off-road mining and heavy dirt hauling projects where you might need to dig out roads and need a truck to haul the massive amounts of dirt to another location. However, rigid rear dump trucks have limited flexibility, and require significant training and skill to operate given their gargantuan capacities. With superior hauling capabilities, even the biggest payloads can be accommodated by our rigid dump trucks; iSeekplant has rigid rear dump truck hire suppliers with options ranging from 30 tonne up to a 400 tonne capacity.

Track Mounted

Rugged, uneven, slippery, steep or soft terrain and tight access areas present a major hurdle for most rubber-tired haulers. This is where track mounted dump trucks (also known as crawler dump trucks and crawler carriers) come in. The crawler dump truck is specifically designed for off-road applications and has the added benefit of being able to manoeuvre in spaces too small for larger machines. Track mounted dump trucks are used to transport material across soft, wet underfoot conditions including muddy or sandy construction sites and marine environments. Their tracks help spread the weight of the dump truck evenly and prevent the machine from getting bogged. Morooka is the most well-established manufacturer of rubber tracked crawler carriers. The Morooka truck's rubber tracks have no joints and can maintain a high speed while applying low pressure on the ground. Hiring a track-mounted dump truck could be the most effective for your job if you're working with challenging, inconsistent or loose terrain. Run a search for a track mounted dump truck to hire today and get in contact with one of iSeekplant's many trustworthy suppliers, at no cost.

iSeekplant can even provide underground dump trucks for hire anywhere in Australia. These underground articulated dump trucks are designed for high production, low cost-per-tonne hauling in underground mining applications and carrying payloads from 30 to 55t and above. Underground dump trucks can be used in both hard-rock and soft-rock underground mining and tunnel construction. Operators working on these projects often put in long operating hours. As a result, underground articulated truck manufacturers have made driver comfort a top priority (other than safety - which is always the most important factor). Many modern underground dump trucks are now ergonomically designed for comfort, control, productivity and to minimise operator fatigue.

Hi Rail

Hi rail dump trucks are built for use in rail construction and maintenance, this includes transporting rail balast (crushed stones) alongside rail lines. The high rail dump truck is equipped with rail wheels which allow the machine to drive on and off railway tracks. The hi rail dump truck gets its name from highway and rail, meaning it can operate both on a conventional road and on rail tracks. Basically, a hi rail dump truck has all the features of a 'normal' dump truck but can be converted to drive on rail lines by lowering its rail wheels. If your next construction project requires you to move materials both on and off railway tracks then iSeekplant's many hi rail dump truck hire suppliers have the right equipment to get the job done. Contact suppliers directly, or call us on 1300 691 912 and we'll source the machine for you!
