What is a Belly Dump Truck?
A Belly Dump Truck is a haul truck commonly used in rural settings. A Belly Dump Truck obtained its name as this particular type of truck dispenses their payload from the bottom of the truck. Internal bed walls are sloped to direct the entire payload out through the opened gates. Discharge rates can be controlled by the degree of gate opening and the speed of the truck during discharge. The discharge is usually placed in an elongated pile, called a windrow.
