A dump truck is a truck used for moving material such as sand, gravel, or demolition waste for construction. It is also used in mines and collieries to move ores and coal. It is known as dumper/tipper truck in UK. Basically it is a truck with an open-box bed fitted to its rear. The open-box is lifted from the front side by a hydraulic ram and materials loaded on the bed are dumped on the ground at the backside of the truck.
