Different Trucks ....

  1. 1. Types of trucks • Small trucks • Light trucks • Medium trucks • Heavy trucks • Very heavy trucks and transporters
  2. 2. Small trucks Mini Truck: Mini truck is the entry level segment of commercial payload vehicles. Generally they fall under sub 1000cc engine category. These vehicles find their use in intra- city low tonnage cargo delivery, like postal and courier services or home delivery of appliances from dealer to the customer.
  3. 3. Mini truck
  4. 4. Light trucks • Minivan • Sport utility vehicle • Canopy express • Pickup truck • Panel truck • Cab-forward • Tow truck • Panel van • Sedan delivery
  5. 5. Minivan is a type of van designed for personal use. Minivans are typically either two-box or one box designs for maximum interior volume – and are taller than a sedan, hatchback, or a station wagon.
  6. 6. A sport utility vehicle (SUV) is a generic marketing term for a vehicle similar to a station wagon, but built on a light-truck chassis. It is usually equipped with four-wheel drive for on- or off-road ability, and with some pretension or ability to be used as an off-road vehicle. Not all four-wheel-drive vehicles are termed as SUV. Some SUVs include the towing capacity of a pickup truck with the passenger-carrying space of a minivan or large sedan
  7. 7. A Canopy express is a light-duty cargo van based on the chassis of a panel truck. Canopy express vehicles have open display areas behind the driver's seat commonly used for peddling vegetables and fruit, but also used for other kinds of deliveries that require easy access, such as newspapers and radio equipment.
  8. 8. A pickup truck (also pick-up truck, pickup, bakkie in South Africa, or ute—an abbreviation of "utility vehicle"—in Australia and New Zealand) is a light motor vehicle with an open-top rear cargo area (bed).
  9. 9. A panel truck is a windowless cargo van built on a truck chassis.
  10. 10. The term cab forward refers to various rail and road vehicle designs which place the driver's compartment substantially farther towards the front than is common practice.
  11. 11. A tow truck (also called a wrecker, a breakdown truck, recovery truck or a breakdown lorry) is a vehicle used to transport motor vehicles to another location (generally a repair garage), or to recover vehicles which are no longer on a drivable surface.
  12. 12. A panel van (or panelvan) is a form of solid (rigid-bodied, non-articulated) van, smaller than a lorry or truck, without rear side windows. In some national usages it is distinct from a purpose-designed van in that it is based on the chassis of a family car design.
  13. 13. A sedan delivery, commonly called a delivery in American English and a car derived van in British English, is a two-door station wagon with a driver or driver and front passenger seats, and steel sheet-metal panels in place of rear side windows. Sedan deliveries have spartan interior trim and were used by businesses ranging from plumbers to bakeries as cargo vans are used today.
  14. 14. Medium trucks An Ford Econoline 350 box truck in Harrisonburg, Virginia. Some of the truck types listed under heavy trucks may also come in medium sizes. In North America, a medium duty truck is larger than a heavy-duty pickup truck or full-size van. • Box truck • Van • Cutaway van chassis • Medium Duty Truck such as Ford F-650 in North America • Medium Standard Truck • Platform truck • Flatbed truck (may also be light duty trucks) • Fire truck (may also be a heavy truck) • Recreational Vehicle or Motorhome • The following are not types of trucks but types of use of the trucks listed above: • Delivery truck, Multi-Stop truck, Bottler.
  15. 15. A box truck, also known as a cube truck, cube van, bob truck, box van, or straight truck, is a truck with a cuboid- shaped cargo area.
  16. 16. A van is a kind of vehicle used for transporting goods or groups of people.
  17. 17. Cutaway van chassis are used by second stage manufactures for a wide range of completed motor vehicles. Especially popular in the United States, they are usually based upon incomplete vans made by manufacturers such as Chrysler Corporation, Ford Motor Company, and General Motors which are generally equipped with heavier components than most of their complete products. To these incomplete vehicles, a second stage manufacturer adds specific equipment and completes the vehicle. Common applications of this type of vehicle design and manufacturing includes small trucks, school buses, recreational vehicles, minibuses, and ambulances.
  18. 18. Recreational vehicles (motor homes) A class C motor home based upon a cutaway van chassis A recreational vehicle (or "RV") is a motor vehicle dually used as both a vehicle and a temporary travel home. They are also called "motor homes" and are very popular in North America. By the mid 1970s, recreational vehicle builders were building models based upon cutaway van chassis.
  19. 19. Commercial minibuses This TransLink-owned community shuttle bus at the University of British Columbia, University Endowment Lands, BC, Canada, is built upon a Ford cutaway van chassis with a body added by a second stage manufacturer. Seeking to expand product offerings, several recreational vehicle manufacturers, notably Champion, ElDorado National Turtletop, and others also developed minibus models using cutaway van chassis and body construction similar to their motor homes With their products, they joined the school bus body companies in seeking and expanding markets.
  20. 20. Electric platform trucks are electric powered trucks with a large flat surface for holding objects to be transported. Some are also called warehouse utility vehicles, electric trolley carts, or powered platform truck vehicles.[1] Electric tugs can be combined with non powered carts orhand trucks to achieve the same result.
  21. 21. A flatbed truck (or flatbed lorry in British English) is a type of truck which can be either articulated or rigid. As the name suggests, it has an entirely flat, level 'bed' body with no sides or roof. This allows for quick and easy loading of goods, and consequently they are used to transport heavy loads that are not delicate or vulnerable to precipitation, such as construction equipment, and also for abnormal loads that require more space than is available on a closed body.
  22. 22. A fire apparatus, fire engine, fire truck, or fire appliance is a vehicle designed to assist in fighting fires by transporting firefighters to the scene and providing them with access to the fire, along with water or other equipment. In some areas, the terms fire engine and fire truckrepresent different types of firefighting apparatus.
  23. 23. Recreational vehicle or RV is, in North America, the usual term for a Motor vehicle or trailer equipped with living space and amenities found in a home.
  24. 24. Delivery is the process of transporting goods. Most goods are delivered through a transportation network. Cargo (physical goods) are primarily delivered via roads and railroads on land, shipping lanes on the sea and airline networks in the air. Certain specialized goods may be delivered via other networks, such as pipelines for liquid goods, power grids for electrical power and computer networks such as the Internet or broadcast networks for electronic information.
  25. 25. Multi-stop trucks (also known as walk-in delivery or step vans) are a type of light-duty and medium-duty truck created for local deliveries to residences and businesses. They are almost always forward-control vehicles, designed to be driven either sitting down or standing up, and often provide easy access between the driver and goods, hence the name "Walk-In Delivery" van. They are taller than full-size vans such as the Ford Econoline, Dodge A-Series/B- Series/Ram Vans, and Chevrolet G-Series vans, but can have wheelbases that are shorter than these models or longer.
  26. 26. Bottler truck
  27. 27. Heavy trucks Scammell ballast tractor at the Torbay Steam Fair in August 2007. Note the frontdrawbar connection coupling for pushing heavy loads. Except for semi-trailer trucks and, generally, mobile cranes, the following types may also come in medium sizes • Ballast tractor • Concrete transport truck(cement mixer) • Crane truck or mobile crane or truck-mounted crane • Dump truck • Garbage truck • Log carrier • Refrigerator truck • Semi-trailer truck also known in British English as "Artic" for 'articulated lorry' • Tank truck or tanker or tanker lorry in British English (can also be a Medium truck)
  28. 28. A ballast tractor is a heavy haulage road vehicle designed to pull or push heavy or exceptionally large loads. Unlike the tractor unit from an articulated trailer, the ballast tractor is designed or adapted to pull or push loads from a drawbar. By contrast an articulated tractor unit pulls from a "fifth wheel", and only pushes when reversing its load.
  29. 29. A concrete mixer (also commonly called a cement mixer) is a device that homogeneously combines cement, aggregate such as sand or gravel, and water to form concrete. A typical concrete mixer uses a revolving drum to mix the components. For smaller volume works portable concrete mixers are often used so that the concrete can be made at the construction site, giving the workers ample time to use the concrete before it hardens. An alternative to a machine is mixing concrete or cement by hand
  30. 30. A crane is a type of machine, generally equipped with a hoist, wire ropes or chains, and sheaves, that can be used both to lift and lower materials and to move them horizontally. It is mainly used for lifting heavy things and transporting them to other places. It uses one or moresimple machines to create mechanical advantage and thus move loads beyond the normal capability of a man
  31. 31. A dump truck (or, UK, dumper truck) is a truck used for transporting loose material (such as sand, gravel, or dirt) for construction. A typical dump truck is equipped with a hydraulically operated open-box bed hinged at the rear, the front of which can be lifted up to allow the contents to be deposited on the ground behind the truck at the site of delivery. In the UK and Australia the term applies to off-road construction plant only, and the road vehicle is known as a tipper, tipper lorry (UK) or tip truck (AU).
  32. 32. Garbage truck refers to a truck specially designed to collect small quantities of waste and haul the collected waste to a solid waste treatment facility. Other common names for this type of truck include trash truck and dump truck in the United States, and bin wagon, dustcart, dustbin lorry, bin lorry and bin motor elsewhere. Technical names include waste collection vehicle and refuse collection vehicle. These trucks are a common sight in most urban areas
  33. 33. Logging truck : A timber lorry or log truck is a large motor vehicle used to carry wooden logs.
  34. 34. A lowboy (low loader in British English) or dolly in Australia is a semi-trailer with two drops in deck height: one right after the gooseneck and one right before the wheels. This allows the deck to be extremely low compared with other trailers. It offers the ability to carry legal loads up to 12 ft (3.66 m) tall, which other trailers cannot.
  35. 35. Very heavy trucks and transporters • Ballast tractor (though most are smaller than this) • Heavy hauler
  36. 36. A ballast tractor is a heavy haulage road vehicle designed to pull or push heavy or exceptionally large loads. Unlike the tractor unit from anarticulated trailer the ballast tractor is designed or adapted to pull or push loads from a drawbar. By contrast an articulated tractor unit pulls from a "fifth wheel, and only pushes when reversing its load.
  37. 37. A heavy hauler is a very large transporter for moving oversize loads which are too large to go on a highway without an escort and special permit.
  38. 38. Extra Heavy Hauler
  39. 39. tipper trucks
  40. 40. Tipper
  41. 41. monster trucks
