Articulated Dump Trucks
Our articulated dump trucks (ADT’s) are acquired from four manufactures;
- John Deere
The trucks are 30 and 40 ton sized units, with a choice of end-dump or ejector boxes.
Specific industries find certain features more desirable. Environmental customers often prefer rock trucks to have tailgates, to lessen the chance of environmental contamination during transport of polluted soil and other materials. Some customers working in the far north where temperatures fall far below zero opt for articulated trucks with heated boxes so materials don’t freeze and get stuck. Many of our articulated rock trucks include rear-view cameras for added safety and all are equipped from the manufacturer with ROPS* and FOPS*.
Our articulated dump trucks work all over Western Canada, on job sites as diverse as our customers. Our trucks are working on sites in the Northern Alberta oil sands, on road construction sites around major cities, and even on farms and lake resorts in rural areas. The versatility and off-road capability of an ADT can’t be beat. On solid, even ground one operator can reach 50 km/h, while another operator can trudge through 2-3 feet of muskeg, both hauling full payloads.
