Dump Trucks and Their Manufacturers
The earliest motorized dumper trucks were developed in Europe in the very early 20th century, but it wasn't until demand boomed during the First World War that the manufacture of these vehicles truly took off. Today the standard dump truck is a full truck on a chassis, the load section being mounted directly onto the frame and raised by hydraulics located behind the cab. Most have one front axle with one or more tandem axles. Variants on the basic idea include the semi trailer end dumper truck, in which the trailer itself houses the hydraulic hoist; the bottom dumper, which has a dump gate in the belly of the trailer, allowing the driver to deposit in a windrow formation; and the bucket truck, which facilitates the depositing of the load to left or right. The BELAZ company of Belarus produce the world's largest dumper truck; a 26 foot high, 65-foot long titan among big dump trucks. Another big company to manufacture the dump truck attachment and the whole vehicle is the world renowned MEILLER.
