A Dump TruckDump trucks are useful for transporting large loads of loose building materials on and off site such as gravel, earth or sand. Dump trucks are instantly recognisable by the large box shaped container positioned at the back of the truck.

The container can be raised and lowered by hydraulics so that loads of aggregate can be dumped easily without having to be manually dug out of the container. The back door of the box is on hinges so as the weight of the material tips against the door it props open allowing for a controllable flow of its contents.
