A garbage truck weighs about 18 tons or 36,000 lbs when it is empty. The average garbage truck is quite heavy and weighs in at around30,000 pounds. It is much heavier than the average truck due to itssize and additional equipment.
I don't know exactly since I don't think there is any such thing as an "average" semi truck; but I do know it's not gasoline, it's diesel fuel.. Typically the have dual 125-150 gallon tanks, so 250-300 gallons
it depends on the suspension and wheel clearance. it is commonly around 1-2 tons (2000-4000lb)
Answer . They are driven by a CDL licensed individual and with various mechanically operated aids, remove garbage and take it to a dumping facility.
Generally it depends on the type of truck. But If you are talking about a tractor trailer combination, Generally a dual tandem axle tractor connected to a 48 ft. or 53 ft. trailer ( most common sizes ). the total Gross Vehicle weight fully loaded cannot be more than 80,000 Lbs . on U.S. highway…s. Their are trucks that can pull more weight but they are specialized to carry more weight and generally need a special permit and a police escort to drive on U.S. highways, but The most commonly used tractor trailers are as stated above far as sizes go, whether they are flatbeds, dry box, "reefers" (refrigerated units), Tankers, or shipping containers. All 80,000 LBS. total truck weight to drive legally without a permit and a police escort on US highways. Hope this helps a little ;) (MORE)
The area, a huge slowly moving whirlpool of ocean between China and America, also known as the North Pacific Gyre, may contain over 100 million tons of mostly plastic rubbish.
depends on the size of the dump truck The size of the dump box (example if it can hold 10 cubic yards) and the legal loading limit for the roads / area and number of axles the truck has will determine the load it can carry. But let's say it can hold 10 cubic yards for this example. Gravel weighs ap…prox 1.35 tons per cubic yard. So a 10 cy load would weigh 10 x 1.35 tons = 13.5 tons of gravel. An average tandem truck can carry @13 tons legally, the largest straight dump truck, a Strong super dump, can carry @26 tons with 7 axles including a Strong arm! This will be around the same for sand too. ADDITIONAL COMMENT: This might be useful for you to know. If a store is trying to sell you loose gravel , or other such natural products by weight, be sure to get the order when it hasn't been raining. Wet gravel, sand, dirt, and etc., weight MUCH more than dry, and you get a whole lot less for your money. (MORE)
The amount of dirt a dump truck can hold depends on the size of thedump truck. The average dump truck can hold 5 cubic yards of dirt.
How much dirt a dump truck holds will vary based on the size of thetruck. Small dump trucks can hold around 7 cubic yards. Largedouble axle dump trucks can hold up to 20 tons.
The qualifications would be listed in the job description that the employer provides. I am sure part of the qualifications would be a CDL driver's license, a good driving record, and a good attendance record.
Each dump truck has a different capacity. It is best to call theplace that will be delivering it what their trucks capacitiesaverage.
The cost per mile for a garbage truck varies somewhat with theprice of diesel fuel and the age and condition of the truck. Onaverage, the fuel cost per mile for a garbage truck is about $1.33if diesel fuel is selling for $3.99 per gallon. The trucksgenerally average 3 miles per gallon of fuel.
The amount of material a garbage truck holds, depends on the sizeof the truck. A typical garbage truck, however, holds about ninetons of garbage.Ã
Depends on the type of truck (whether its a dual tandem or a tri-axle) but most US trucks average between 9 - 11 yards.
It depends on the vehicle class of the truck and if they are subject to the federal DOT regs. Most states mirror the same but some might have different weights for intrastate operations. All dump trucks are not the same and this info is for the US. A class 3 which would be a 1 ton truck with a du…mp bed will have a 14,000 lbs max weight limit. Subtract the weight of the truck from that and you will get the weight it can hold. A class the class 7 heavy truck weight limit is between 26,001- 33,000 lbs which is about the most you will see without tandem axles. Again, subtract the curb weight from the max weight and check the manufacturer's gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) to ensure it isn't listed below the max class rating. A typical max weight of the load for a class 3 might be 4,000 - 6,000lbs (2-3 tons) the max weight of the load for a class 7 dump truck might be around 12,000 lbs or 6 tons up to about 18,000lbs or 9 tons. Of course lighter trucks will carry more and heavier trucks have to carry less. (MORE)
A Macdonald Johnston Side Loader, in Australia. Length: 9491mm. Height: 3300mm. Width: 2440mm. Compactor Capacity: 22 m3 . ALL MANUFACTURERS HAVE DIFFERENT DESIGNS. SO IT CHANGES BY EACH MANUFACTURER . WWW.MJE.COM.AU
Depends on the actual capacity of the body, manufacturer of the body, condition of the hydraulic pump, compressibility of the load (bulky items such as couches and wood do not compress). Average body sizes range from about15 to 32 cubic yards. The truck I drive is a 2005 Mack LE600 with a McNeilus 3…2 cubic yard packing body and I average weights ranging from 14.5 tons (multiple bulky items) to 18 tons (little or no bulky items). The most weight I have put on this truck in one shot is 21.74 tons. (MORE)
It depends on the type of garbage truck. Roll-offs are around $130,000.00 and Front-load which dump the dumpsters are $225,000.00 to $235,000.00.
Depends on several factors - if it is tied or not those that aren't tied usually don't "pop" due to the lack of pressure built inside the bag however the bags that are tied tightly will most generally "pop" at some point while in the truck if they are not "popped" from the pack cycle. A bag which… is not tied at the top however, may still pop depending on how/where it lands in the hopper when the garbagemen throw it in - this too can determine if there will be any trapped air in it (and it will therefore "pop") when the packer draws the load into the body. Nearly all bags will pop if they are in the pinch point of the packer blade, especially if there are other bags behind them. Another determining factor is the type of packing mechanism, those that mutilate the waste rather than flatly compress it with moving walls or plates - examples such as screw compactors, revolving drum compactors and the like will usually tear and rip the bags open before any air can build up inside.

Another name\scientific name for the garbage truck is The Compactor.. It could be dustcart, if in Britain.
A 1994 Chevy silvarado 3500 long wheel base and suburban holds 31-34 gallons. crew cab holds 34 gallons. standard 1500 models holds with side tank holds 23 gallons, and with a rear tank holds 31 gallons. 3500 and 2500 series with short bed holds 26 gallons. All that have the rear tanks holds 31 gall…ons. The rear tanks were optional. (MORE)
The average garbage truck very's with each model but most garbage trucks has 8-10 wheels some can have less.
Fire trucks don't really carry the water, they take big hoses and then hook it up to a fire hydrant, which supplies all the water. They just use too much to haul around.
Super Ten is a transmission, not a truck type, and doesn't indicate the layout of the truck.
The volume of concrete that a concrete truck hold is variable depending on the model of the vehicle. Older ones usually have 6 cubic meters however newer trucks have 8 cubic meter capacity. The volume of concrete a concrete truck hold is proportional to the weight the truck is carrying. In some loc…alities where infrastructure like bridges and roads are not design to carry heavy loads will have to use small volume trucks. (MORE)
On a rear loader garbage truck, the waste is loaded from the back and then a big metal scoop compacts it against the moving walls inside to allow more room in the truck. Once full it is emptied at a landfill or other waste solutions area..
Not knowing what size garbage can do the following. Calculate volume of penny. Calculate volume of garbage can. Divide A into B
There are several types of garbage trucks, and they operate by different means. Container trucks can empty either by offloading their container, or opening the back door of that container and dumping out, much in the same fashion as a straightforward dump truck. Never dealt with compactor trucks f…irsthand, but I've always been under the impression that the compactor arm simply pushes the refuse out of the back of the truck - any compactor drivers who happen across this are certainly free to correct me if I'm wrong on this. Some garbage trucks are little more than straightforward dump trucks. (MORE)
That depends on what model of truck it is, and what motor it has in it.

Oil capacity depends on the size of the oil pan in the truck and what type motor it has... My Freightliner with a Detroit had 11 gallons (they range as low as 9)
Deduct the actual weight of the vehicle (E-350 Van) from 10,500 lbs. The remainder is the weight capacity of the cargo (including Passenger weight) that the manufacturer specifies for the vehicle. If vehicle weight is unknown buy a weight ticket at a commercial scale and drive it unloaded onto the s…cale with the normal driver on board. Subtract this weight from 10,500 lbs. The remainder would be the maximum legal cargo weight which may be loaded. (MORE)
Varies by states and their bridge laws, as well as the tare weight of the vehicle. Also, you didn't state whether you were referring to commodities loaded by the yard or by the ton. As far as tons go, 15 - 18 tons seems to be the norm, although some states may have higher intrastate weight tolerance…s. (MORE)
You'll be hard pressed to find a Mack that burns gasoline. They are mainly diesel powered. Typical tank sizes range from 50 to 100 gallons.
Usually, it's 120 coals. If you are wearing the Seer's headband 1, it's 140 coals. With the Seer's headband 2, it's 168 coals. With the Seer's headband 3, it's 196 coals.
That's going to depend on the dump truck's configuration. It could be a single axle, tandem, tri-axle, quad axle, quint axle, centipede, frameless end dump, framed end dump, etc.
not that i know of no , unfortunatly, contendo games dont think of these things :/
Usually they will hold 27 ozs for me. Make sure not to over charge it. There should be a sticker on the ac system or under the hood telling you how much capacity it should hold.

Female Drivers usually make anywhere from 9.25-11.50 when you start. However after a few years of experience behind your back you can go as far as gettin 15.00-18.50 an hour. I've been doing it for a while now and I'm getting paid 12.50 per hour. Hope this helps!
Once emptied into the hopper a blade comes down and compacts the garbage into the other garbage removing all air space and compressing it flat once truck is full which takes about 350 homes in my truck yes im a female trash girl it is emptied at the transfer station and it is compacted again into a …big trailer and hauled to landfill where it is finally and i think the besst compacting is done by a 110,000 pound spiked compactor this thing drives over a pile of garbage and smashes it 2-3 feet into the ground before i drove one i had no idea what happened to my garbage its not pretty (MORE)
Depends on the specifications of the collection trucks, as well as the dimensions of the trailer, and tare weight of the vehicle. Weight wise, a transfer truck, at best, could legally haul the weight of the payload of three tandem axle collection trucks - collection trucks are quite heavy, so transf…er trailers often are, as well.

The volume that a dump truck can hold depends on the size of the truck. You could say that there is no 'typical' dump truck. The horsepower, the axle weight, and the size of the box are a few of the features that determine how much the truck can hold and haul.
Type your answer here... I just finished changing the oil in my 1988 Chevy C1500 pickup and put six quarts in the engine; five for the pan with one in the filter. I always use the biggest filter available. Exam: Wix 51061.
Garbage trucks would be quite expensive to buy because they are an industrial truck and not accessable for just anyone to purchase. The least expensive way to buy one would be to find a second hand one that the town you live in is no longer wishing to use.
Physical Capital consist of things like machinery equipment, factory, bulding, computers & even hand tools
You will have to ask your neighbors or contact your garbage company. All I know is that it won't be Saturday or Sunday.
Depends on configuration. Five tons for a single with a GVWR of 26,000 is about normal, eight tons for a single axle with a GVWR of 33,000 is about the norm, 13-14 tons interstate and 15 tons on secondary roads is typical for a tandem axle dump truck, a tri-axle maybe 16 or 17 tons, 18 Interstate an…d 20 secondary for a quad, up to 25 for a centipede, superdump, or tractor-trailer end dump.
