5 Reasons to Power Your Jobsite with a Freightliner Dump Truck

Vocational Trucks

You have work to do. We have just the right truck to help you get it done, whether you’re moving dirt, gravel—or mountains.

There are plenty of reasons to choose a Freightliner®medium- or severe-duty dump truck with a Detroit®engine. Here are five:

  1. Versatility: conquer any job

The M2 106 is an all-around workhorse. As the #1 best-selling medium-duty truck in North America*, it’s a no-brainer for a wide range of jobs. For heavier projects, the 108SD and 114SD are severe-duty trucks that bring even more power to the task at hand. And with the Detroit®DD8and DD13®engines, it’s easy to build a truck that has just the right amount of muscle. With set-forward or set-back front axles, a full range of severe-duty vocational suspensions and the industry’s widest selection of engines, we don’t just have a variety of dump trucks—we have yours.

  1. Durability: secure your bottom line

A Freightliner dump truck is built to last, from its steel-reinforced aluminum cab to everything under the hood. Powerful Detroit DD8 and DD13 engines offer the longest scheduled maintenance intervals in their class, so your trucks stay out of the shop and on the jobsite. And Detroit Connect Virtual Technician® remote diagnostic service identifies and interprets fault codes, so scheduling service and repairs is easier than ever.

  1. Safety: protect what’s important

Good business is about people. That’s why driver safety is one of our top priorities. Freightliner dump trucks aren’t just easy to maneuver in narrow streets or busy jobsites. They lead the industry in safety, with the superior visibility of a 2,500-square-inch windshield as well as the optional WABCO OnGuardACTIVE—an innovative, radar-based collision mitigation system**.

  1. Comfort: keep drivers happy

Driver comfort helps keep productivity high, which leads to better work and happier customers. That’s why Freightliner trucks are built with comfort in mind. Each truck has a comfortable, spacious cab that features a low step-in height with slip-resistant dual steps, as well as an automotive-style, ergonomically designed dash. No matter what kind of truck you choose, we make it easy to give your drivers what they need to succeed.

  1. Partnership: go further with Freightliner

Freightliner is dedicated to working with you before and after your truck hits the jobsite. With more than 800 service and dealer locations, many of which are Elite Support certified and dedicated to providing the highest standard of customer service, we give you the resources and support you need to keep moving forward.

Versatility. Power. Productivity. Safety. A Freightliner dump truck with a Detroit engine has everything you need to take on any challenge. It’s the perfect tool for whatever kind of work you do.
