Supers, Tens, and Ends – How much can they haul?

North Coast Trucking fleet consists of many dump truck types such as Super Dumps, Super Tens, End Dumps, and Ten Wheelers. These are types of dump trucks commonly used in construction, earthmoving, and material hauling operations.

Here are the key differences between these types of dump trucks:

Super Dumps

Super Dumps are heavy-duty dump trucks equipped with a tag axle, and a larger box than the standard super ten, that can be deployed to increase load capacity while maintaining maneuverability.

They typically feature an airbag system that allows the tag axle to be raised when empty or traveling unloaded and lowered when carrying a heavy load.

Super Dumps have a higher load capacity by approximately 5 tons compared to standard Super Ten, making them suitable for transporting large volumes of materials over long distances.

Super Tens

Super Tens are similar to Super Dumps but typically have a smaller load capacity by approximately 5 tons.

They feature a drop axle configuration with a smaller box compared to the Super Dump, hauling slightly less than the Super Dump by approximately 5 tons.

Super Tens are often used in heavy-duty applications such as hauling aggregates, gravel, and soil for medium-scale construction projects.

End Dumps

End Dumps are standard dump trucks with a hydraulic lift mechanism that tilts the dump bed to discharge materials at the rear of the truck.

They are commonly used for transporting loose materials such as sand, gravel, asphalt, and demolition debris.

End Dumps are versatile and suitable for a wide range of construction, landscaping, and earthmoving tasks.

Ten Wheelers

Ten Wheelers, also known as tandem axle dump trucks, feature a dual axle configuration with ten wheels, typically arranged in a 4x2x4 configuration.

They have a moderate load capacity and are commonly used for transporting materials in small-sized construction projects and municipal applications.

Ten Wheelers offer a balance between load capacity, maneuverability, and versatility, making them popular choices for various hauling tasks.

In summary, the main differences between these types of dump trucks lie in their load capacities, axle configurations, and intended applications. Super Dumps, Super Tens, and End Dumps are heavy-duty trucks designed for transporting large volumes of materials, while Ten Wheelers are more commonly used in small-sized projects with moderate load requirements. Each type of dump truck offers unique advantages and capabilities to meet the specific needs of construction and hauling operations.
