Tip trucks are production trucks that are used for transporting loose materials such as cement, gravel, sand, mulch, soil and construction materials. Also called dump trucks, these engineering vehicles consist of an open box-bed attached at the rear. The box can be lifted to allow materials to be deposited to the ground just behind the truck. Operators control the lifting of the box through hydraulics.
The first tip truck was created by Robert T. Mahinney in 1920. Since then, it has been used widely. Today, several kinds of tip trucks exist including the articulated tip truck, standard tip truck, transfer tip truck, semi trailer end tip truck, side tip truck, and many more.
