1. What are the features of the underground dump trucks?

Underground dump trucks’ underground body features a lightweight, curved design to reduce material suspension and overall operating costs. The size of the bathtub dump box is customized to suit specific site conditions. All custom body designs meet OEM requirements for correct shaft split and gross vehicle weight specifications. Underground dump trucks’ underground body can be mounted on a variety of underground truck chassis using OEM cranes and pivot pins. The bathtub is designed to be easily mounted to any OEM chassis, using four lift points at the side of the bathtub. Other features include:

Solid impact rod on all upper surfaces to resist impact and wear and to strengthen high impact areas

Shallow angles transition into all internal seams to minimize material hang-ups

Redesigned wheel arches and increased dumping angles to improve material flow

Large radius transitions and lower profiles reduce material hanging

2. What are the advantages of the underground dump trucks?

Load impact: Underground dump trucks offer greater flexibility in loading type and volume and are equally impressive in loading effectiveness. However, due to the size of the trailer, underground dump trucks may not be able to carry as much cargo as rigid frame trucks. Rigid frame trucks can handle high impact loads, and underground dump trucks can move loads over uneven, muddy, and rocky terrain without much impact to the driver. The six-wheel four-wheel drive capability and greater traction allow them to transport goods easily over very difficult terrain without posing a risk to the frame or the driver.

Better drivetrains: Modern underground dump trucks have been equipped with better drivetrains than their predecessors, which means that transmission characteristics and slopes and payloads are matched, allowing for more stability when the truck stops on a slope. The brakes are released only when there is enough torque to move the truck forward, greatly reducing the chance of rollbacks and accidents. This feature, known as mountain hold assistance, is part of a modern driveline. This feature also helps trucks improve fuel efficiency because trucks can automatically detect when to select higher start gears.


3. What are the tips to avoid danger caused by the underground dump trucks?

Follow the latest safety standards: Ensure that all safety equipment is maintained regularly and meets the latest safety standards. Never save money on safety equipment. If an item no longer meets current safety standards, replace it, even if it means additional costs or delaying the project. Never allow employees to use outdated safety equipment, even for a short period of time. The number of safety-related incidents during the use of underground dump trucks is high. Unfortunately, some of the tragedies that have occurred could have been prevented. Don't repeat the mistakes that others have made.
