Construction Party Supplies – The Background
Construction Party Supplies are based on dump trucks that are used for transporting sand, gravel, clinkers, asphalt, wood chips, snow, triple mix, or dirt etc. for construction. The dump trucks used for construction are known as dumper truck in UK. Normally a dump truck is fitted with hydraulically operated open-box bed hinged at the back. The front of the bed can be lifted up and this allows the contents to be deposited on the ground behind the truck at the construction site.
The dump truck was first created in 1920 in Saint John, New Brunswick by Robert T. Mawhinney. He had actually attached a wooden dump box to a flat bed truck. He had attached a winch to a cable that fed over a pulley that was mounted on a mast behind the cab, and this served as the lifting device. The cable was attached to the lower front end of the dump box which was attached by a pivot at the rear of the truck frame. The operator could turn a crank to raise and lower the box. Today, almost all dump trucks are operated by hydraulics and they are configured specifically to accomplish a specific task in the construction material supply system.
Today’s standard dump truck has a chassis with a dump body mounted to its frame. A hydraulic ram is placed below the front of the dumper body between the frames that raises the bed. And at the rear of the truck the back of the bed is hinged. The tailgate can either swing on hinges, or it is in High Lift Tailgate format, depending on the configuration. In the High Lift Tailgate format the pneumatic rams lift the gate open and up above the dump body.
A standard dump truck in the United States is a six wheeler with one powered rear axle or a ten wheeler with two powered rear axles or a tri-axle with two powered axles and one lift axle or the quad with two powered axles and two lift axles. Lift axles can be raised off the pavement when the truck is lightly loaded or unloaded and can be lowered to load the truck heavily. So, lift axles, when raised, minimize wear and tear and when lowered, provide extra support to the truck. The largest dump truck has seven axles and is commonly called a “centipede”. It has seven axles; rear two are powered, the front one is the steering axle, and the remaining four are lift axles.
The higher capacity semi-trailer dump trucks are less maneuverable than a standard dump truck due to the large wheelbase.
In the construction world “Yuke” or an articulated dump truck is different from semi trailer trucks in that its cab is not a separable vehicle but a permanent fixture.
A transfer dump is actually a standard dump truck that pulls a separate trailer that can also be loaded with aggregate.
A Superdump is a straight dump truck that is equipped with a liftable, a trailing axle and high rated load-bearing axle.
A semi end dump is actually a tractor-trailer combination where the trailer itself contains the hydraulic hoist.
A “belly dump” or semi bottom dump is a 3-axle tractor that pulls a 2-axle trailer with a dump gate in the belly of the trailer.
A S.D.T. or side dump truck is a 3-axle tractor that pulls a 2-axle semi-trailer.
Off-road dump trucks are used strictly off-road for mining and heavy dirt hauling jobs and resemble heavy construction equipment or engineering vehicles. Bucyrus MT6300AC, Caterpillar 797F, Liebherr T 282B are the current largest off road haul trucks with payload capacity of 400 short tons.
Construction Party Supplies – The Options
You may select Basic Party Pack from our Construction Party Supplies which includes all the stuff you need for 8 guests. Or you may go with the Deluxe Party Pack from our Construction Kids Party Supplies that has much more items than the Construction Basic Pack. The Construction deluxe pack is also for 8 guests. If you need favor boxes as well, I would suggest you to choose the combination of Deluxe Party Pack & 8 Favor Boxes from our Construction Kids Birthday Party Supplies as it would cost you much more if you purchase them separately. If you think that the number of guests may exceed 8 you should consider Construction Party Pack Add-On as it contains extra items for the extra guests. You may order Construction Party Favor Boxes separately as well.
