Are all dump trucks the same?

There are many different sizes, makes and models of dump truck that are used on different mine sites across Australia, although they all function relatively the same. The most common dump trucks are Caterpillar (CAT) and Komatsu.

There are many different types of dump trucks operating on a mine site, some are new and some are older model trucks. You'll also find diesel powered trucks and the more recent electric/hybrid trucks, however, their basic operation remains the same.

Although, the variety of models and manufactures of dump trucks can vary, their operation is much the same. The most important aspect of driving these massive trucks is being able to be always aware of other road, plant and machinery operators working in close to you. One of the most common accidents we see on a mine site are collisions with other vehicles - we don't want this to happen to you.

This is why this type of awareness training is absolutely essential - you will learn this at the course. This is covered in great detail in your course because your safety and the safety of other workers is always the number one priority.
