Forward tipping dumper trucks are in general use in the construction industry and are also found in many other industries including utilities, mining, quarrying, river authorities and inland waterway management. Dumper trucks have a wide variety of uses where there is a requirement to transport materials such as soil, sand, aggregates, and other loose materials safely and efficiently. Dumper trucks are very versatile and highly manoeuvrable machines but can cause severe or even fatal injury if not operated safely.
