Dump trucks are heavy machinery used to transport large volumes of loose materials such as dirt, sand, ores, gravel, and demolition waste across mining, civil or major construction sites.

You can contact our dump truck suppliers directly for quotes, no matter whether if you need - from track mounted dump trucks, to high rail dump trucks, front tip dump trucks, site dumpers, and even underground dump trucks.
Dump trucks come in an assortment of types and configurations. Each is designed for use across a variety of different applications, so picking the right one for your project is important. Popular applications include using articulated dump trucks for civil and mining operations, rigid rear dump trucks for use in tandem with hydraulic excavators in mining, site dumpers and front tippers for use in compact or low capacity operations, track mounted dump trucks for operations that require work on sandy, bog, dirt, snow or muddy terrain, hi rail dump trucks for use in railway projects, and underground dump trucks for use in both hard-rock and soft-rock underground mining and tunnel construction projects.
Dump trucks are typically filled with dirt, sand or minerals by another machine where it then transports and dumps its load at a specified location. As such, the key feature of a dump truck is the dump box which is powered by hydraulics, allowing operators to lift and tip loads. In other words, hydraulic hoist systems are used to lift the dump box when it needs to be emptied.

Dump trucks are heavy machinery capable of transporting large volumes of loose materials from mining, civil, or major construction sites. You will need to consider hiring a dump truck on your next construction or mining project for transportation of loose dirt, sand, ores, gravel, and demolition waste. The main two dump trucks available for hire are the rigid rear dump trucks and articulated dump trucks.
Dump trucks are usually hired on construction or mining projects and are filled by another machine with loose dirt, sand, and minerals. Once loaded, the dump trucks transport the materials to the indicated location and then unload via the hydraulically powered dump box until emptied.
There are six different types of dump trucks available for hire at iSeekplant across Australia.
Dump trucks are available for hire in various sizes. The most common sized articulated dump trucks available range from 10 to 40 tonne models, and rigid rear dump trucks range from 30 to 400 tonne models.
Dump truck hire rates are dependent on the type of dump truck, wet or dry hire, and volume of loose materials needing to be transported. Dry hire of articulated dump trucks cost $50 per hour for 10 tonne models, $170 per hour for 30 tonne models, and $400 per hour plus for 40+ tonne models.
