Video: The Super Dump versus the Quint-Axle Dump Truck
The average quint-axle dump truck (aka Simple 16 dump truck) is limited to about 19 tons of payload each trip, in compliance with the federal and most state bridge laws. A Super Dump, however, hauls up to 26 Tons of payload each trip. We break down the numbers comparing the quint to the Super Dump, showing realistic estimates of the additional revenue a Super Dump will earn compared to a quint / simple 16 dump truck. We use very conservative numbers in our calculations in this video, so that the estimates are realistic. We encourage you to repeat the calculations using your own real-life numbers, and you'll probably come up with even higher increased revenue figures than we did. Quint axle dump trucks are useful in some states, but in the majority of states, and on all interstates and other federal highways, the additional payload that Super Dumps are allowed to carry brings in so much additional income that the Super Dump equipment pays for itself in a year's time.

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.
