Throughout a dump truck’s life, it hauls a lot of material to and from a job site. Some materials may cause more wear and tear than others, but all make the drivers grateful that they have the truck to transport them. Here are the most common materials to haul in a dump truck.
One of the most common materials that dump trucks move is building debris. As construction companies demolish old structures to create new ones, they need trucks to haul away this waste. These rough materials may cause scratches and dents in their truck beds, but these companies can better protect the vehicles with dump truck liners that limit the damage and maintain their appearance.
Another one of the most common materials to haul in a dump truck is dirt. Construction companies once again find these vehicles very useful since they will need to remove dirt as they excavate a new project.
However, just as removing dirt can benefit a project, so can dirt’s delivery. Builders also use dump trucks to transport the soil to a site to build the foundation for a new structure.
Dump trucks also regularly carry asphalt to job sites so that contractors can build new portions of the infrastructure, including roads, ramps, and bridges. Builders often use the material for parking lots, trails, and even roofing material as well.
Asphalt’s sticky nature can damage a dump truck bed, but a liner with a stick-resistant surface can help. It’ll allow users to dump asphalt more efficiently and reduce the amount of material left on the bed.
Two other materials that dump trucks haul regularly are gravel and sand. Like dirt, builders may find they have an unwanted presence on their site or want to use them on their projects. Again, a liner can be useful when transporting these materials, along with dirt. When operators use them, very few pieces are left behind in the truck, and the builder’s client gets their money’s worth.
