Dump trucks are most commonly used to transport loose materials such as soil, sand, gravel and stone. The quarry or other supplier may use front end loaders or an overhead hopper to fill the trucks to capacity, then some form of protective cover may be used to keep debris from falling out during transport. Once the dump trucks reach their destination, the back gate is released and a hydraulic lift raises the front of the bed. The material is usually left in piles near the construction area.
