ARTICULATED ROCK TRUCKS
A rock truck is made for moving large amounts of heavy material around or away from a construction and job site. Great for transporting materials over uneven terrain, unfinished construction sites as well as smooth city roads. require a flat or smooth road to drive on.
An articulated rock truck, or articulated dump truck or ADT consists of the following parts:
The front tractor section
The back hauler or trailer section
Hydraulic cylinders to connect the above
Since the back trailer section moves horizontally with respect to the front tractor section, it allows for a more dynamic movement for the trailer to operate in corners and at angles. ADTs can function under extreme weather conditions, low ceiling heights, restricted turning radiuses and narrow roads. While ADTs are considered lighter and more versatile, they have a shorter job life than a rigid dump truck.
WHAT ARE THE COMMON USES OF ARTICULATED ROCK TRUCKS?
Articulated rock trucks are most commonly used in construction and mining industries for hauling and dumping materials. They help to efficiently transport rocks, soil, debris and heavy materials on and off the site. ADTs have the power and dependability you need to complete large-scale tasks safely and efficiently.
The weight and size of an articulated dump truck required for a project are determined by the load weight and the material that needs to be hauled or moved. Articulated dump trucks are available for rent with load capacities ranging from 25 – 45 tons.
ARTICULATED ROCK TRUCKS VS RIGID DUMP TRUCKS
The main difference between an articulated and rigid dump truck is the design of the frame.
Rigid dump trucks come with a fixed chassis and provide more stability and longevity.
Articulated rock or dump trucks have a cab attached to the tipping body and allow greater flexibility and more manoeuvrability.
Both trucks offer efficiency when used in the right way under the right conditions. We work with the best manufacturers in the industry to serve all your rock truck rental requirements in Calgary and across Alberta.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT TRUCK FOR YOUR JOB
Our experienced team can help you choose the best type and size of dump truck for your project. We will help you assess and take note of the following details:
Ground conditions: Rigid dump trucks are the best for graded surfaces and sites with well-established and well-maintained roads. ADTs can carry heavy loads over nearly any terrain, be it muddy, slippery or generally softer ground.
Type of job: If your job is a construction, quarry or mining operation, ADTs can short-haul distances across rough and uneven terrain. Over long distances and refined terrain, rigid trucks are the recommended option.
Size of the job site: ADTs can manoeuvre in small work sites and areas with constricted turning space. For large open spaces or work sites with roads, rigid dump trucks are the ones to go with.
