what is an articulated dump truck?
An articulated dump truck is a large off road haulage truck designed to move loose materials around a construction or mining site. There are two main parts to an articulated dump truck, the cab, often called the tractor, which stores the engine and operator, and the trailer, which carries the materials. The two main parts are connected by a rotating hitch which allows the articulated dump truck more maneuverability than rigid dump trucks. This makes articulated dump trucks perfect for large road or infrastructure construction projects and smaller quarry and mining operations.
Articulated dump trucks are designed for rugged, steep off road terrain and can carry anywhere between 25 tonnes and 55 tonnes worth of materials depending on the model. Articulated dump trucks are different from regular trucks both in design and size as they are not meant to be used on road. The articulated dump truck design and technology can then be focused on the needed stability and maneuverability to handle the rough off road terrain.

Volvo articulated dump trucks are used throughout South Australia at road construction projects, quarries and mines, hauling materials around site. Articulated dump trucks are designed to carry loads of 25 to 55 tonnes all day every day so are on sites where massive quantities of material are being moved. They are used on road construction when major earthworks is undertaken, such as demolition and tunnel construction. For this application smaller articulated dump trucks are usually dry hired, such as the Volvo A30 or A40.
Larger articulated dump trucks are hired to work at quarries to move the product from the source to the transfer stations. They are also wet hired for smaller open cut mines where rigid dump trucks can’t work due to terrain restrictions.
