Dump Trucks: The Unsung Heroes of the Fleet
By Michael McClanahan / June 30, 2023

Sweepers, plows, and platform rigs may get the most admiring glances, but construction and landscaping businesses would be lost without the humble dump truck.

From a “box of rocks” to fill dirt and topsoil, from lumber to construction materials, a dump truck can haul a variety of loads to keep your business humming. A purpose-built dump truck and hoist combo saves hours of loading and unloading bulk materials, adding efficiency to your jobs and dollars to your bottom line.

Add a lift or a ramp and your dump truck can double as a hauler for equipment like backhoes, trenchers, loaders, excavators, and mowers.

And when the job’s done, you can fill it with debris and haul it to the landfill.

Yes, the humble dump truck is the unsung hero of construction, maintenance, and landscaping fleets.
