Dump trucks are crucial for many construction projects, as they aid in both site preparation and material transportation. They are primarily responsible for carrying loose building materials like pit dirt, gravel, and sand to and from the job site. Dump trucks are important for construction projects because they have large beds and are safe when carrying large and heavy loads.
