For the purpose of transporting some of the heaviest objects ever conceived or constructed, trucks are the robust choice for the task available. Heavy-duty trucks are used to transport everything that has to be moved along a road, whether it be cattle, machinery, boats, equipment, or produce.
A semi-trailer truck, more commonly known as a semi-truck, is the combination of a tractor unit and one or more semi-trailers to carry freight. A semi-trailer is attached to the tractor through a fifth-wheel linkage (hitch), with the tractor bearing the majority of its weight. As a result, both the tractor and semi-trailer will have a design distinctly different from that of a rigid truck and trailer.
A box truck—also known as a cube truck—is a chassis cab truck with an enclosed cubed-shaped cargo area. The cabin on most box trucks is separate from the cargo space. However, some cube trucks have a rear door between the cabin and the cargo area. They are typically 10 to 26 feet in length and can range from Class 3 to Class 7 (12,500 lb. to 33,000 lb. gross vehicle weight rating). They often feature a roll-up garage door in the back. Box trucks are often used by companies to transport home appliances and furniture.
A dump truck, also known as a dumper truck, is used for taking dumps such as sand, gravel, or demolition waste from construction sites. A dump truck usually has an open-box bed that is hinged at the back and has hydraulic rams to elevate the front, allowing the material in the bed to be dumped on the ground behind the tipper truck at the job site or delivery location. Most standard dump trucks feature a single front steering axle and one 4×2 4-wheeler or two 6×4 6-wheeler rear axles with dual wheels on each side. Tandem rear axles are almost always powered, and front steering axles are also sometimes powered 4×4 or 6×6.
