Enjoying the Journey

Sometimes when people buy a new car, they think more about gas mileage and resale value than they do about their own experience. Unfortunately, if you overlook your own personal enjoyment, you might end up driving a car that you hate for a lot longer than you want to. I have bought and sold several cars over my lifetime, and I can tell you that I have the most fun with a car when I really stop to think about what I am looking for. My website is designed to help you to decide what type of car will work for you—so that you can enjoy the journey.

Purchasing Your First Dump Truck? 3 Questions To Ask Before You Make Your Final Selection

If you're tired of renting a dump truck every time you have a big job, it's time to invest in one of your own. However, buying a dump truck isn't as simple as buying a pickup truck. They have specific requirements that you'll need to take into consideration. Now that you're going to invest in your own dump truck, here are three questions you need to ask before you make your decision.

What Type of Box Material?

When it comes to investing in a dump truck, the first thing you need to do is consider the box construction, specifically the material that's used in the construction. The two most common materials used in dump truck boxes are aluminum and steel. While both materials are suitable for dump truck boxes, they each have distinct advantages.

Aluminum

If weight and fuel costs are a concern, you need to choose a dump truck that has an aluminum box. Aluminum boxes are more lightweight, which means you'll save money on your fuel costs. Not only that, but, because the aluminum weighs less, you'll have an increased hauling capacity. This is particularly important, when traveling on roads that have weight restrictions or when you're hauling debris to the dump. Most dumps charge by weight, which means you'll be able to haul more if your box weighs less.

Steel

If durability and strength are a determining factor in your dump truck choice, you need to choose a steel box. Steel is heavier, which means it will hold up under the pressure of those heavy-duty jobs you have.

What are Your Load Requirements?

While you're shopping for a new dump truck, you need to consider what your load requirements will be. If you'll be using your dump truck for routine construction projects, or other industrial purposes, you can choose a smaller dump truck. However, if you'll be undertaking major industrial projects with your new dump truck, you'll need a large-capacity truck. For this type of use, be sure to choose a dump truck with a larger body and a heavy-duty box.

Are Additional Storage Areas Available On Board?

When it comes time to choose your new dump truck, don't forget to take your storage needs into consideration. If you and your crews will need access to tools and supplies on your job sites, you'll need to choose dump trucks that provide ample on board storage compartments. On board heavy-duty tool boxes increase productivity and efficiency.
