Tipper truck


Dump trucks are used for transporting bulk or small pieces of goods. In agriculture, this type of machine is in demand during harvesting and fodder preparation. Another narrow specialisation of tippers is in the stripping and quarrying of minerals.

The driving speed of a self-propelled machine can reach up to 100 km/h, and the payload capacity can vary depending on the model and make of the machine. Some dump trucks have a load capacity of up to 450 tonnes, with the weight of the dump truck itself in the range of 5-50 tonnes.

Types of dump trucks:


Tipper constructional
  • Length 8.30 m
  • Width 2.55 m
  • Height 3.35 m
  • Volume 2.00 - 7.20 m3
  • Tonnage 2.25 - 12 t
Construction dump trucks are designed for transporting bulk goods (earth, sand, crushed stone, gravel, etc.), construction solutions (concrete, lime, gypsum, soap lye, etc.) and other various construction cargoes (silicate bricks, cement, etc.). Construction dump trucks are indispensable in the construction of objects in the construction industry. Such machines have rear discharge to ensure safety and high speed of cargo unloading.


Tipper agricultural
  • Length 5.95 m
  • Width 2.46 m
  • Height 2.36 m
  • Volume 4.30 - 6.00 m3
  • Tonnage 2.40 - 5.50 t
Agricultural tippers are used during the harvesting process. They are machines oriented towards transporting light, yet bulky loads (e.g. fodder, hay fertiliser, grain, silage, corn, vegetables, potatoes, beetroot) and have three-sided unloading to optimise the process. These tippers can also be used for various economic and construction works.


Tipper quarry
  • Length 12.40 m
  • Width 2.50 m
  • Height 3.45 m
  • Volume 16 m3
  • Tonnage 30 - 450 t
Quarry tippers are designed for transporting rocks and hard minerals (ore, hard coal, etc.). They are used for off-road operation, and their driving on asphalt roads is inadmissible due to high axle loads and specific pressure of wheels on the road surface. Quarry dump trucks have increased power and load capacity, and are capable of transporting up to 450 tonnes of materials in one approach.


Tipper road
  • Length 10.20 m
  • Width 3.07 m
  • Height 3.50 m
  • Volume 15 - 70 m3
  • Tonnage 40 t
Road tippers can drive on highways and public roads and are widely used today in various fields (construction, public utilities, road repairs). The machine can hold about 40 tonnes of cargo. The technique finds application in the sphere of industry, in agriculture, on the construction site. The minus of this group is that such dump trucks are difficult to move off-road.


Tipper underground
  • Length 8.86 m
  • Width 2.49 m
  • Height 3.28 m
  • Volume 19 m3
  • Tonnage 1 - 40 t
Underground tippers are used in tunnels and mines. The machines are distinguished by manoeuvrability, compact dimensions, good traction with the ground surface, and have a load capacity of up to 40 tonnes. They are used for removal of blasted rocks, slag, minerals, work in tunnels. These machines are often used on mining roads and quarries.


Tipper articulated
  • Length 9.20 m
  • Width 2.55 m
  • Height 3.68 m
  • Volume 19 m3
  • Tonnage 10 - 50 t
Articulated tippers are called earthmoving trucks. They have an articulated frame that connects the cab and the body. These units are characterised by high cross-country ability with excellent manoeuvrability. Such dump trucks are capable of carrying an average of 10-50 tonnes of freight, moving at high speed even on difficult sections of the road.


Tipper specialised
  • Length 5.50 - 11.50 m
  • Width 2.50 m
  • Height 3.80 m
  • Volume 7-15 m3
  • Tonnage 17.80 t
Specialised tippers are used for transporting only one specific type of freight (concrete trucks, cement trucks, grain trucks).
