What is a Rear Tipping Dumper?

Off-highway dump trucks  are heavy construction equipment and share little resemblance to highway dump trucks. Bigger off-highway dump trucks are used strictly off-road for mining and heavy dirt hauling jobs. There are two primary forms: rigid frame and articulating frame.

The term ‘dump’ truck is not generally used by the mining industry, or by the manufacturers that build these machines. The more appropriate U.S. term for this strictly off road vehicle is “haul truck” and the equivalent European term is ‘dumper’.

An articulated hauler is an all-wheel drive, off-road dump truck. It has a hinge between the cab and the dump box, but is distinct from a semi-trailer truck in that the power unit is a permanent fixture, not a separable vehicle. Steering is accomplished via hydraulic cylinders that pivot the entire tractor in relation to the trailer, rather than rack and pinion steering on the front axle as in a conventional dump truck. By this way of steering, the trailers wheels follow the same path as the front wheels. Together with all-wheel drive and low center of gravity, it is highly adaptable to rough terrain. Major manufacturers include Volvo CE, Terex and Caterpillar. these Rear Tipping Dumpers combine a number of components to provide safety and ease of use.

How long do  Rear Tipping Dumper courses last?

This common question is not easily answered, as the answer lies in the existing training level of the participant. Pro Trainers UK are well versed in working with companies of all shapes and sizes, and can advise on the most suitable course duration on a bespoke basis.
