A dump truck is a truck used for transporting loose material, such as sand, gravel, or dirt, for construction. A typical dump truck is equipped with a hydraulically operated open-box bed hinged at the rear, the front of which can be lifted up to allow the contents to be deposited on the ground behind the truck at the site of delivery. Dump trucks come in a variety of configurations each specified to accomplish a specific task in the construction material supply chain.
