Video: The Super Dump versus the Quad Dump Truck
The average quad-axle dump truck is limited to about 17 tons of payload each trip, in compliance with the federal bridge law, as well as most state bridge laws. A Super Dump, however, hauls up to 26 Tons of payload each trip. We break down the numbers comparing the quad to the Super Dump, illustrating the significant earnings boost one can see by upgrading from a quad dump truck to a Super Dump. In this video we use very conservative numbers in our calculations, so that the estimates are realistic for all viewers. By all means, repeat the calculations using your own real-life numbers, and you'll probably calculate even higher additional revenue numbers using Super Dumps than we do. Quad axle dump trucks work out fine in a handful of states where the state laws, or special exemptions, give them a boost (thanks, lobbyists), but in the majority of states, and all over the country on the interstates and other federal roads, the Super Dump is clearly the better choice in terms of profitability. Come on folks, the additional cost of a Super Dump compared to a quad pays for itself in the first year, just in the extra money you make!

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.
