Articulated dump trucks (ADT), also known as articulated haul trucks, articulated dumpers or articulated hauliers, is a heavy-duty vehicles used to transport large loads over rough terrain and occasionally on public roads.

Dump Trucks are characterised by their all-wheel drive and two-part structure, consisting of a front tractor unit and a rear trailer unit connected by a pivot joint (articulation). The design allows the rear unit to articulate or swivel in relation to the front unit, providing increased manoeuvrability and stability on off-road terrain. Steering is accomplished through hydraulic rams that pivot the front unit in relation to the back bowl. Articulated dumpers are known for their durability and ability to handle heavy loads, making them an excellent choice for construction and mining applications.

ADT’s vary in payload weights from the 6.5-tonne Hydrema 707G to the large 55-tonne Bell B60E.

It’s worth noting that the payload capacity of an ADT is not the same as its gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), which is the maximum weight of the vehicle and its contents designed to carry safely. The GVWR of an ADT will typically be higher than its payload capacity, as it includes the weight of the vehicle itself and any fuel, passengers, and other materials carried.
