Default DUMP TRUCK FORUM

I think we could use a dump truck forum here at class a drivers. It seems like there is alot of dump truck drivers that use this site. There is alot of talk about it.

Most dump trucks do not require a class a cdl, some don't require a cdl at all or as low as a class d, the only ones that require a class a cdl is those that are in the weight class that makes them a Class A because of the pup trailer, C.A.D. should have a class division for different type of licenses. Like C.B.D C.C.D. C.D.D. , don't get me wrong here I like dump trucks, was the first rig I ever drove when 13 years old, but if class b drivers are allowed then we should have one for fire engines and ambulances and tow trucks , guess I am to hard nose because I have a class A cdl.

well you are right but you have to know that some straight truck dump trucks and weigh just as much if not more then a TT. In NJ a tri axle can carry 80,000lbs and that's only 4 axles not 5 so it takes the same skill level if not more to drive a dump truck.

I know this is old but I think a dump truck forum would be good.

I don't know... I hate message boards that are littered with countless little sub-forums that hardly anyone uses. I hauled a rock bucket for a while and can sympathize with the dump truckers, but it'd probably wind up a pretty lonely little forum.

It might but you never know. It seems we get a good amount of people in here asking about dumps.
