What is an ADT?

Articulated Dump Trucks (ADTs) are essentially very large, heavy-duty dump trucks for transporting loads over rough terrain. What makes articulated dump trucks (also known as articulated haulers) “articulated” is the “articulation point”, where a separated operator cab and trailer meet. These two disjointed parts of the truck mean the trailer can pivot and sway from the cab on rough terrain, but it also lends itself to renovation, allowing hire companies to convert the trailer into a concrete mixer, container truck, hook loader, crane truck, woodchipper platform, or semi-hauler trailer while still retaining that “articulated” quality.

ADT Services

Articulated Dump Trucks are suitable for rough terrain jobs on agriculture, mining, construction, highway maintenance projects, and even military applications across Australia. They’re particularly useful on large construction sites, even before they’re levelled out, where dump truck operators may have to manoeuvre around obstacles, tight corners, steep haul roads, and rocky terrain.

ADTs v. Tipper Trucks

Articulated Dump Trucks’ “articulation point” is the main feature that separates them from other (rigid) tipper trucks. Where early ADTs where characterised by their tractor-like design – with manual transmission, lack of suspension, and ruggedness – manufacturers have modernised to push “articulated steering” as a major feature. If you’re looking for a dump truck to serve a project in its early stages, in mountainous or hilly regions, or off-road, Articulated Dump Trucks are the machine for you.
