Dump Trucks France (Equipment Analysis). 

Dump Trucks France (Equipment Analysis). 

This report concerns the market for articulated and rigid dump trucks in France, and is an update of the European Service report last published in June 2014. They are generally known in French as dumpers, although the official term, created to avoid the use of English, is tombereaux automoteurs. The analysis and information contained within the report covers the market for both rigid and articulated dump trucks, as the applications and end-end user requirements for each product differ widely. The on-off highway truck, or camion, which has a smaller payload, different braking and a less robust transmission, is not covered in this study.

This report classifies dump trucks by their payload in metric tonnes. The articulated dump truck is of European origin and has always followed the metric system but the rigid dump truck is of North American origin. The practice there is to classify the trucks by their capacity in short tons, (1 short ton = 2,000 lbs). This report follows the European practice in using the metric tonne, which equals approximately 1.1 short tons. The findings of this report are based on Off-Highway Research’s International Database and on information obtained in an extensive interview programme with all leading suppliers undertaken in the first half of 2017.

The market for off-highway dump trucks begins at approximately 22 tonnes, with the smallest machines all being of the articulated design. Some manufacturers have tried to introduce smaller machines, around 10 to 12 tonnes’ capacity, but they have not been successful in the French market. At the other end of the size scale the interest in very large mining trucks does not exist, given that France does not have any large-scale mining of minerals.
