RIIMPO336E – Conduct belly dump truck operations

Learn how to work a belly dump truck – a haul truck that uses internal sloped walls to drop transported materials through the bottom into neat linear heaps called ‘windrows’. Typically used in rural areas, or by anyone in civil construction, coal mining and extractive industries, these trucks give you the ability to control the speed and degree of gate opening so the materials can be best positioned for your needs. We’ll teach you all the specific operating procedures and guidelines to follow so work is conducted safely and efficiently, as well as truck prep, maintenance and cleanup! Our course is flexible in both duration and location so can be tailored to meet your experience level and training needs.

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.
It is important to follow all appropriate procedures and guidelines when operating a Belly Dump Truck. This will ensure the belly dump is operated within applicable guidelines and that work is conducted in a safe manner.
