What Are End Dumps
When you hear the term, “end dump,” you likely envision a dump truck. End dumps are vehicles that have an open top box that transports and deposits waste materials. These boxes are mechanically lifted into the air and they unload their contents out the back by raising the forward-most section upward while the rear portion stays near to the ground. End dumps are usually not used for hauling liquids, as it is difficult to seal the rear gate.
End Dumps, Bottom Dumps, and Side Dumps
The primary difference between end dumps, bottom dumps, and side dumps is where the cargo is unloaded. In addition to this, these different types of dump trucks each have their own advantages and disadvantages.
The name of each of these trucks is fairly self explanatory. End dumps deposit wastes via the rear opening, while bottom dumps (otherwise known as belly dumps) have a clamshell opening in the center of the trailer and side dumps pitch materials to either the left or right of the cab.
End dumps and side dumps can unload their cargo more rapidly and carry bulkier items than bottom dumps can. This does not mean they can always handle more weight, but the manner in which your company’s hazardous or nonhazardous waste is deposited may be something you want to consider.
