13 Feb 2017

We talk about How to Choose Dump Trucks for Mining, city building, transportation distance more than 200km?

1- Used for mining: Engine choose 290hp~420hp according to your requirements. To choose a short wheel base to improve the strength of the frame and vehicle trafficability. 

For gearbox, 9 speed transmission with bigger input torque. 

For drive axle, mine use drive axle is required with double reduction, differential lock and inter differential. 

For tire, we recommend to choose radial tire like 12.00R20. The dumping body can be made to mine use. 

For carrying big stones, the back door of the dumping body can be removed. The thickness of steel can be made to bottom 14mm, side and back 10mm to meet the requirement in mine. 

About tipping system, you can choose middle tipping or front tipping. Usually front tipping with HYVA tipping system is considered to be stong and stable in use. Usually the length of the dumping body is 4800mm to 5600mm.


2- Used for city building: These trucks are usually traveling in city road with traveling distance less than 200km. 

So we recommend you to choose engine power with 336hp or 380hp or so. 6x4 drive type or 8x4 drive type according to the loading weight. 

For gearbox, 10 speed or 12 speed is better. Double reduction axle, ratio is from 4.42 to 5.73. Better choose radial tire. 

Usually the length of the dumping body for 6*4 is 5600mm to 6000mm. And for 8x4 it is from 6200mm to 8500mm.


3- Used for transportation distance more than 200km: The drive axle can choose ratio 4.42 or 4.8 and better use 8x4 to carry more each time to save time. 

Gearbox can choose 12 speeds. Tubeless tire is also good for these trucks. Body length is from 6200mm to 8500mm, front tipping.
