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.
