Super Dumps dump trucks
Just 1 ton of payload can mean over $100,000 over the life of your truck.
SuperDump® Dump System - What is a Super Dump?
Super Dumps - World's Largest SuperDump® Fleet - Super Dump Trucks

A Super Dump is a dump truck equipped with a Strong Arm™ trailing axle, which allows the truck to transform on demand, significantly stretching its overall axle length so that it can carry substantially more weight in compliance with bridge laws (weight laws).

A Super Dump has four to seven total axles (nine axle version coming soon), and is capable of legal payloads ranging from 19-26 Tons (32 tons with nine axles, coming soon). Super Dumps carry payloads equal to trailers and transfers, while maintaining the maneuverability and quick turnaround time of a standard tandem dump truck. The unique combination of huge payload & quickness is what makes the Super Dump the most productive and profitable dump truck on the road.

According to the federal bridge formula, and most state bridge laws as well, a vehicle's allowable weight is increased by adding more axles and/or adding more overall axle length (the distance from the first to the last axle on the truck). When the Strong Arm® trailing axle is deployed, it adds 11-13 feet to the truck's axle length, and increases its allowable weight by as much as 14,000 lbs.

Super Dumps can carry bigger payloads than any other straight dump truck. And of course, when you can carry more payload each trip, your revenue and profits increase significantly: As a general rule of thumb, just one ton of additional payload each trip will generate $100,000 in additional revenue over 10 years (the life of the truck, conservatively figured). That's just ONE additional ton -- Super Dumps typically can carry 5 to 13 Tons more than other straight dump trucks (like tandems, tri-axles, quads, and quints). So then, the Super Dump equipment actually pays for itself -- usually ten times over -- in the ADDITIONAL revenue that it generates.

Productivity and profitability aren't functions of payload alone, however. After all, transfers, pup trailers, and long end dump trailers carry large payloads like Super Dumps, but those dump trucks are tedious, cumbersome, and time-consuming, such that the additional payload they haul compared to typical straight dump trucks is almost completely squandered by their inefficiency and slowness. This is where the Super Dump truly stands apart from all others: it hauls the payloads of dump trailers and transfers, while being just as agile and quick as simple straight trucks.

When at the dump site, and whenever the dump body is empty, the Strong Arm® stows above the dump body, completely out of the way for dumping operations, and without hindering the truck's maneuverability. While a trailer or transfer can haul 26 Tons of payload to the job site, when it arrives at the site it's STILL a trailer or transfer, and the task of backing up and dumping (twice, for a transfer or pup) can be painfully time-consuming. Meanwhile, a Super Dump carrying the same 26-Ton payload arrives at the job site, stows all of its auxiliary axles including the Strong Arm™, and gets in, gets dumped, and heads back to the loading site as quickly as any short straight dump truck. For short- and mid-range jobs, which are typical for dump trucks, a Super Dump will usually LAP trailers, pups, or transfers, delivering an additional load each day. At 26 Tons per load, that means a lot in terms of revenue and profitability. And the shorter the distance, the more the Super Dump's efficiency shows, as it can lap the trailers and transfers several times in just one day.

The Super Dump is more profitable than any other straight dump truck because it hauls significantly more payload each trip, and it's more profitable than dump trailers, pup trailers, and transfers because its superior maneuverability and quickness results in additional loads delivered to the job site.

The Strong Industries Dump Body

We've been making Superdumps® for eighteen years by analyzing the designs of dump bodies from every major manufacturer and custom-designing our Strong Arm trailing axle for maximum performance. Twenty years ago we decided to use our vast knowledge and experience to manufacture our own dump bodies in addition to trailing axles, and our Super Dump was designed from the ground up to be just that - a Super Dump! Instead of retro-fitting our axle onto a standard dump body, the body itself was designed with the axle in mind. The STRONG SUPERDUMP® has gained a reputation for being the industry leader in quality, performance and profitability.

You might think you know, but you probably don't completely understand exactly why or how it outperforms all other dump trucks.
Video: Super Dump versus Tandem Dump Truck
The Super Dump can carry twice as much payload as the typical tandem dump truck in accordance with bridge laws and weight regulations (federally as well as most state laws). But what does this mean for the owner of the truck? If you currently own a plain old tandem truck (or you're looking to buy a dump truck), how would investing a little more into the initial cost of a Super Dump affect your immediate and long-term income? Check out this video, where we break down the numbers for you.
Video: Super Dump versus Dump Trailer (End Dump Semi-Trailer)
Maybe it's obvious that a Super Dump is more productive and profitable than a plain tandem dump truck, or even a tri-axle or other straight truck. But what about a long dump trailer? Some folks mistakenly assume that because dump trailers carry as much payload as Super Dumps, they're just as productive. However, as this video illustrates, productivity is a function of payload AND quickness, and the Super Dump will often lap a dump trailer (multiple times) each day.
