A dump truck, also known as a dumping truck, dump trailer, dumper trailer, dump lorry or dumper lorry, or simply a dumper, is a vehicle that transports construction and demolition materials (such as dirt, gravel, or demolition waste) as well as coal. An open-box bed on a dump truck is hinged at the back and fitted with hydraulic rams to elevate the front, allowing the material in the bed to be dropped ("dumped") on the ground behind the truck at the delivery site. SICHO has four GX500D TATA 20 Metric ton dump trucks.
In its most basic form, ODC (Over Dimensional Cargo) refers to cargo that extends beyond the loading deck of the vehicle conveying it. Before delving into the technical definition of what qualifies a cargo as ODC, it's important to remember that the purpose of defining ODC is to safeguard the safety of road users. The government's goal is to avert any harmful activities or mishaps by classifying a cargo as ODC and putting limits on its carrying. The question of whether the administration has made the right decisions and implemented the right restrictions will have to wait for another day.
SICHO has two Ashok Leyland 10 Metric ton open trucks.
