Video: The Super Dump versus the Tri Axle Dump Truck
The average tri-axle dump truck is limited to about 15 tons of payload each trip, in accordance with the federal bridge law as well as most state bridge laws. The Super Dump, on the other hand, can haul up to 26 Tons of payload each trip. We break down the numbers comparing these two types of dump trucks to reveal how much more revenue can be made with a Super Dump, using very conservative numbers in our calculations so that our estimates are very realistic. After watching the video, break out your calculator and repeat the calculations using your own real-life numbers, and you'll probably calculate even higher additional revenue numbers than we do. Due to some state laws or special exemptions in some states, tri-axles do have their place in todays dump truck industry, but in the majority of states, and on every federal highway (like the interstates), the tri-axle dump truck pales in comparison to a Super Dump.

DISCLAIMER:

Some of our videos calculate or estimate the revenue or profit earned, with our dump truck products as well as other products for comparison purposes. The revenue amounts calculated in these videos are for illustrative purposes, based on realistic estimates for the necessary variables (payload, earnings per ton, number of deliveries per day, paver speed, etc) to perform the calculation. The allowed gross vehicle weight (GVW) for each type of truck is based on the Federal Bridge Formula. The actual revenue any dump truck (including a Super Dump) earns can be more or less than what is illustrated in these videos, depending on the specific variables for that truck and the hauling job, including its payload, the actual revenue earned per unit of payload, and so forth. Additionally, some of our videos show reinvesting a portion of the revenue earned into buying additional Super Dumps, and the revenue figures used there are based on the same example revenue calculations earlier in the video. Your actual revenue and reinvestment portion may be more or less than what is shown, and the actual cost for each Super Dump will vary based on your cost for the truck, the options included in your Super Dump package, and the pricing at the time of purchase. We encourage you to break out your calculator and run the numbers for yourself, using your current truck's payload, your typical revenue earned per ton delivered, your days worked per year, and so forth, and realistically compare how your revenue will increase with the additional delivered payload provided by a Super Dump.
