Rigid dumper The rigid dumper is a very large construction machine used for transporting materials (sand, stones, gravel, ores) in mines, quarries or on large construction sites, over short or medium distances (5,000 m maximum ).
Rigid dumpers generally have four wheels, often twin at the rear. Very robust, they have the drawback of not being very handy. Their bucket, which can be V-shaped or flat-bottomed, tilts to empty its load. Its filling is carried out by a crawler excavator or a trax. A rigid dumper can support from 32 to 360 tons depending on the model. The body heat option, which uses exhaust gases, helps prevent material being transported from sticking to the bottom of the body.
The first rigid dumper, dubbed 1Z, was produced by Euclid in 1934. Currently, the largest rigid dumpers in existence are the Liebherr T282B and the Belaz 75710.
