Dump trucks are heavy machinery used to transport large amounts of loose materials such as dirt, sand, ore, gravel and demolition waste in mining, civil or large construction sites. If your next construction or mining project needs to transport bulk materials, you will most likely need a dump truck. The two most popular dump trucks rented include rigid rear dump trucks and articulated dump trucks.

Underground dump trucks are mainly used for hard rock and soft rock underground mining and tunnel construction projects.

A typical dump truck is equipped with an open-box bed, which is hinged at the rear and equipped with hydraulic tappets to lift the front, allowing the material in the bed to be deposited ("dumped") on the ground behind the truck Place of delivery.

Underground dump trucks are specially designed for high-yield, low-tonnage transportation in underground mining applications and can carry payloads of 30 to 55 tons and above. Underground dump trucks can be used for hard rock and soft rock underground mining and tunnel construction.

Operators working on these projects usually spend a long time. Therefore, the manufacturers of underground articulated trucks have put driver comfort first (in addition to safety, this is always the most important factor). Today, many modern Underground dump trucks are ergonomically designed to provide comfort, control, productivity and minimize operator fatigue.


(3)  Advantages of our underground truck


Our underground mining dump trucks have a sturdy and simple design that can cope with challenging environments and conditions. They are robust, productive and efficient equipment.


Excellent mobility

Through compact size, short turning radius, articulated frame and steering control device. The ergonomically designed cab provides maximum comfort with full control.


Constantly upgrading

Over the years, design and manufacturing have been continuously upgraded to meet the most demanding requirements of the underground mining industry. All selected components, parts and components meet and exceed strict standards, aiming to simplify maintenance, reduce downtime, reduce operating costs and increase productivity.


Consistently, of all mining, power transportation caused the most deaths. Fifty percent of the deaths in 2017 (14 out of 28) and 57% (4 out of 7) deaths in the first few months of 2018 involved motorized transportation. Transportation equipment is the main cause of these accidents. Among power transportation and mobile equipment, transportation trucks are the most popular equipment. In fact, dump trucks account for more than 45% of all equipment in the mining industry [PR Newswire 2015]. An estimated 44,500 trucks are in use worldwide [Parker Bay Company 2014]. In 2017, dump trucks were involved in 6 of 28 deaths [MSHA 2018a].

Due to the above reasons, the safety of dump trucks is very important and is related to the main health and safety of the underground mining industry.
