How To Choose A Dump Truck For Sale

Since the early 1900s, children have been fascinated by dump trucks. The sheer size of this massive piece of equipment going up and down the streets has appealed to their imagination. Now, you may be in a position where you must buy the real thing for your company. Ewald Commercial Trucks is here to help you. We supply Wisconsin companies with Ford dump trucks, Ram dump trucks, and Chevy dump trucks for sale. Suppose you aren't in the market for a dump truck, no worries! We carry Milwaukee trucks for sale at our dealership as well. When you are looking for dump trucks for sale near Milwaukee, keep these things in mind before you make your purchase:

  1. There are three body styles on the market: half-round, semi-elliptical, and the traditional rectangle. A dump truck for sale that is the traditional rectangle shape will offer your company the most room on the floor of the bed, which means that you have more spread. This shape is prevalent for the agility and strength it offers with the low center of gravity when carrying a heavy load. The half-round body style can handle impact better than the rectangular version because the steel is shaped into a semi-circle. Because it does not require cross-members for support, it offers a greater payload capacity and lighter total weight. The shape also makes it more challenging for material to stick to the floor, which allows for a cleaner dump cycle. Yet, the half-round has limitations when hauling equipment or pallets in the bed because it's not flat. The semi-elliptical style is a hybrid between the traditional rectangle body and the half-round body type. The semi-elliptical body on our dump trucks for sale has floors like the traditional rectangle body style but has a haul shape like the half-round body style.
  2. The body metal of the dump trucks for sale near Milwaukee is also something that you should consider when you buy a dump truck. Not all metals have the same tensile strength, so pick the one that fits the tasks that the dump trucks will be used for. The two main options are steel and aluminum. Steel is ideal for carrying more abrasive materials, like gravel, asphalt, and concrete. Steel gives more protection than aluminum against potential damage to your dump truck. Aluminum is a great choice when your company carries non-abrasive materials because it weighs less. Aluminum offers greater payload capacity and more protection from corrosion. However, keep in mind that aluminum bodies and their repairs are more expensive than steel.
  3. The third thing to consider is the engine of the dump trucks for sale near Milwaukee. Power output from dump truck engines usually ranges between 300 and 600 horsepower. Don't overestimate your requirements and buy too much more horsepower than you need. This will cost you when you put this truck into your operation. Make sure to consider the weight of the load that you intend to carry and match an engine accordingly. You don't want to be underpowered, but you also don't want to be overpowered either.
  4. The transmission is the fourth thing to consider when you buy a dump truck for sale. Manual transmissions offer a wide range of gear options in dump trucks for sale. This allows drivers to get more maneuverability. It also allows drivers to match engine speed to the task at hand. An automatic transmission in a dump truck does not offer this advantage. However, without multiple gears and a clutch, the automatic transmission causes less operator fatigue during long jobs in our trucks for sale near you. You also have the option of an integrated automated manual transmission. This is becoming more popular with dump truck buyers because it offers both a comfortable operating experience and efficient energy expenditure at the same time.
  5. Gross vehicle weight rating is the maximum operating weight specified for a dump truck and includes the total sum weight of everything. This means chassis, fuel, body, engine, operator, and cargo load. Federal laws are in place to protect bridges and highways from excessive damage caused by vehicle weight. These weight limits are based on the number of axles on a truck. The fewer axles a dump truck has, the lower the weight that truck can legally carry on public roads. Thus, you should consider the axle requirements you need when you choose to buy a dump truck for sale.
