Dump Truck Tires

As the usage of dump trucks is very specific the right choice of dump truck tires is very important, as it provides not only the safety but also increases the efficiency of your machinery park. 

Since dump trucks must travel under heavy load at high speeds over relatively long distances, tires for dump trucks must have high heat and wear resistance. High resistance to cuts is sometimes also necessary.

Different types of dump trucks

There are different types of dump trucks:

  • Machines for open-pit mines and quarries
  • Machines for earthworks and infrastructure sites

Machines for open-pit mines and quarries

These contain rigid dump trucks and bottom dump trucks. 

Rigid dump trucks are mainly used in open-pit mines, stone and sand quarries, transporting very heavy loads from the face to the crushing or processing stations. 

The method of unloading of bottom dump trucks is via the bottom and their high capacity restrict them to use on large sites with only minor gradients, on which the materials are brittle (transporting coal, etc.). Bottom dump trucks are suitable for applications involving long cycles.

Important: 

The capacity of the loaders (or excavators) must be appropriate for that of the means of transport used. This is a key factor operational productivity.

It depends on the number of loading passes required to reach the maximum payload of the rigid dump trucks (3 to 5 in mines, more in quarries). 

Machines for earthworks and infrastructure sites:

These include small dump trucks, rigid dump trucks and articulated dump trucks

Small dump trucks: are mainly used in transporting materials for earthworks and infrastructure sites (highways, rail track construction, dam, etc.) and for transporting materials in stone and sand quarries from the face to the crushing or processing stations. 

Rigid dump trucks: are mainly used on earthworks or infrastructure sites (highways, rail track construction, dams, etc.), transporting materials, sometimes over long distances (cycles of up to 40 kilometers).

Articulated dump trucks: are mainly used for transporting materials on earthworks and infrastructure sites. Articulated dump trucks are sometimes found on the same sites as rigid dump trucks, apart from quarries, where they are rarely used.
