Tri-Axle Dump Truck Dimensions

Postby Don McCombs » Sat May 02, 2015 7:12 pm

I never cease to be amazed at the varied knowledge of the members of this forum. So, here's an oddball question. What is the typical maximum height of a tri-axle dump truck with the bed in the full up position? TIA.

I really don't know the exact answer, but from personal experience I know it will be high enough to take out power lines.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I don't think anyone can give you a very precise answer. There are too many variables: body length, side/front height, cab protection, lift angle, the truck's tires and suspension etc. Just as a SWAG, a tri-axle will typically have 18' or longer body with 4 1/2' or more front height. It is likely to have 1/2 or less cab protection and maybe a 60 degree lift. With those dimensions, fully up it is probably as high as it is long, maybe a little more. Add about 3' for the truck underneath. That puts you at 21 feet plus. I'd like to hear from somebody that actually knows.
