A truck with a body which can be raised in order to dump the contents of that body out. "Tipper" is a term common to Commonwealth countries - in other countries, they may be known as dump trucks.

Just different dialects, is all. Dump truck is more common in North America - specifically, the United States, whereas 'tipper' tends to be the more prevalent term in Commonwealth countries, Europe, etc. A dump truck in America is a tipper elsewhere, and vice versa, although the term dump truck is a bit more broad, and includes bottom dumps, whereas tipper tends to apply only to vehicles in which the dump bed actually does tip (either to the rear or to the side).

Hydraulic fluid is forced into a collapsing cylinder, which extends it. This pushes up the bed of the dump/tipper truck, causing it to raise. Gravity takes over from there, dumping the commodity out of the bed.
