Articulated Rock Truck


Heavy construction, mining, and quarrying jobs require huge amounts of material to be moved from one area to another on site. One of the most common pieces of equipment used for this purpose is an off-road dump truck. A skilled operator can recognize different types of off-road dump trucks and understand which type of truck is best suited for the task at hand. Safe operators have working knowledge of all of the instruments and controls, perform daily inspections and maintenance, and know the rules for operating on haul roads and excavated ground.
