Features & Options for Strong Dump Truck Systems

Options (All Dump Truck Systems)

The IntelliTruck® advanced on-board control system uses robust mobile electronics and streamlined custom components, to reduce the number of wires (and potential failure points) by over 60%, for long-lasting, trouble-free performance and dependability. Plus the color control monitor makes it the easiest-to-operate control system in the dump truck industry, with descriptive buttons, on-screen illustrations, informative notifications and status screens, and operator error prevention.
Remotely view every truck in your fleet on real-time maps, with customizable real-time alerts to let you know whenever the most important events occur with any truck. View engine diagnostics codes to know immediately when your trucks need maintenance, and see a history of everywhere any truck has been, and everywhere it dumped. Because the Fleet Management system is in constant communication with the on-board IntelliTruck® Control System, you also know the current status of the dump body's components. With the addition of our on-board scales, you can view every truck's current payload, while the system keeps track of how much every truck has hauled for any period of time. Schedule your jobs through the IntelliTruck online app, and it even handles truck dispatching, and keeps track of exactly how much material is delivered to each job.
For any dump truck owner, ensuring that your truck is properly loaded, exactly to the maximum amount you can carry, is absolutely crucial. Overloaded trucks run the risk of expensive fines because state or federal bridge law limits are exceeded, and the fines can be compounded from violations on gross weight, individual axles, and groups of axles. Just as important, and perhaps even more expensive, is under-loading the truck: Being under-loaded just half a ton each trip can easily be costing thousands of dollars in lost revenue every year.

With the StrongWeigh® Onboard Scale System, the driver can view the truck's gross weight, the weight on each axle, and the payload weight, all with an easy-to-use and easy-to-understand graphic on the IntelliTruck® Control System monitor.

Plus with the onboard scales installed, the IntelliTruck® Fleet Management system will then track your payloads along with all of your other truck information. View the gross weight and payload for any truck currently, or for any past load it hauled, or even the cumulative total payload it hauled over any time period.
With dump trucks, typically every auxiliary axle, including any pusher axles and the Strong Arm®, are pressured down to the exact same pressure every time they're deployed. This is usually fine if the truck is loaded exactly the same, with the exact same material, every time its loaded. But when the truck is loaded more heavily toward the front or rear of the truck, due to different materials or inconsistent loading, this can create scenarios where some axles or groups of axles are overweight, even if the gross vehicle weight isn't.

Our patented Integrated Axle Loading allows you to adjust the loading of the axles from the IntelliTruck® Control System monitor, and handles the calculations for you: If you want 8,000 lbs load on a pusher axle, just set it at 8,000 lbs (it handles the pressure calculation). Even better, when the truck is also equipped with our Onboard Scale system, Integerated Axle Loading has an Auto-Loading option, whereby it will automatically adjust the loading of the axles based on the current payload and its center of gravity, so that the weight is optimally distributed every time the truck is loaded. With Auto-Loading enabled, all the driver needs to do after the truck is loaded is press a button to deploy the axle(s), and the system instantly calculates and employs the optimal loading on the axle(s).
A typical power tarp is prone to headaches, because it's dependent on the operator, who must manually hold the tarp control to retract or extend, and must release to stop the tarp. It's easy to over-wind or overextend the tarp from inside the cab, and this can result in the tarp motor getting burned up, or the tarp getting gummed up with hot asphalt. And with a Super Dump, should the operator forget to retract the tarp before raising the trailing axle, the tarp can be damaged by the trailing axle tires.

The SmartTarp® prevents such errors, and is easy for the operator: sensors automatically stop the tarp when it's fully extended or fully retracted, and the operator just presses the button once. Plus, for Super Dumps, if the operator raises the Strong Arm trailing axle, the tarp will automatically retract to a safe distance to allow the trailing axle tires to clear.
Mud flaps can be a nuissance, as inevitably the truck operator will forget to raise the flaps before backing in and dumping, resulting in the mud flaps getting damaged, covered in asphalt, or completely ripped off the truck.

With our EverLift® mud flaps, the mud flaps automatically raise whenever the truck is placed in reverse or the PTO is engaged, and automatically lower back to nomal ride position whenever the truck begins driving forward.
When pusher axles are raised after being deployed/loaded, it can take a minute or so before the tires actually raise off the road surface, depending on the current air pressure in the tanks. During this time, the axle is not loaded but the tires remain on the road, and if the driver presses the brakes, the tires skid - and this wears flat spots on the tires, very quickly. These flats spots are bad enough, but it soon gets worse, because now the tires are out of balance which leads to the whole tire being totally trashed before long.

With the Pusher Axle Tire Saver, sensors are added to the axle's air lines and our system detects when the axle is properly loaded such that the tires won't skid when braking, and disables the brakes to the axle when it isn't -- so that your pusher axle tires last significantly longer than they ever have before.
Under-pressured tires on your truck are probably costing you far more than you realize. Fuel efficiency is greatly decreased, while the rate of tire wear is greatly increased. In fact, for the tandem drive axles, when one tire has 10 lbs lower pressure than the other tires near it, it can be dragged 13 feet for every mile the truck travels.

With our Tire Pressure Monitor, you can easily know the exact tire pressure in every tire on the truck. Each tire is equipped with wireless pressure sensors, and on the IntelliTruck Conrol Monitor you have full layout of all the truck's tries and their pressures. Plus, the IntelliTruck System will alert you immediately on-screen when any tire is low. And through the IntelliTruck Fleet Management app, all of the tire pressures or low tire alerts are included with all of the other truck data, so that management can quickly see when a driver is being negligent.
Dump trucks are big vehicles, and mirrors just don't do enough to help the driver see some of the most important areas around the truck. Our cameras are integrated with the IntelliTruck® Control System, so that you can quickly see either camera's view on the large color display monitor.

Rear View Camera: Mounted directly on the tailgate, a wide field of view allows you to see everything behind the truck - from other cars, to asphalt pavers, to pedestrians. The camera viewport will optionally pop up every time you place the truck in reverse, so that you see it's view immediately whenever you start backing up.

Load View Camera: Mounted high on the front of the dump bed, you can see your load without needing to climb a ladder or even get out of the driver's seat.

Super Dump Features

The Strong Arm® is what transforms a regular dump truck into a Super Dump. The Strong Arm had been time-tested and regularly improved over the last 20 years, to perform better today than ever before. More on the Strong Arm Trailing Axle
The Strong Arm's patented Secordary Lateral Suspension enhances the roll stability of the truck. It's available with the traditional configuration having one air spring on each side, or our new wider axle Strong Arm has two air springs on each side. With either configuration, you have the unique combination that only a Strong Arm® provides: a soft vertical suspension for bumps and vibrations (via the accumulator hydraulic cylinders), with a stiff lateral suspension for stability (via the Secondary Lateral Suspension). More on the Strong Arm Trailing Axle
The Strong Arm's hydraulic cylinders have build-in nitrogen accumulators, which give the axle a soft vertical cushion when traveling over bumps, dips, or any road elevation changes. Other trailing axles take shortcuts with cheap hydraulic systems, and the result is rapid pressure changes whenever the it travels over elevation changes, which results in cracks and breaks in the trailing axle and unnecessary wear and tear on the truck chassis and suspension. At Strong, we go the extra mile to maintain smooth, consistent, legal lift force at all times with our precision-engineered hydraulic cylinders and integrated accumulators.
