What is a Tip Truck?

A tip truck is a truck used for transporting loose materials (such as sand, gravel or dirt) for construction. A typical tip truck is equipped with an open-box bed, which is hinged at the rear and equipped with hydraulic pistons to lift the front, allowing the materials in the bed to be deposited (dumped) on the ground behind the truck at the site of delivery.


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.
