This publication is a revision to the February 1983 publication of the same title and contains a checklist and sample specifications to assist Indiana's Local Public Agencies in the procurement of dump trucks for use in the maintenance of local roads and streets. Most LPA's do not purchase such equipment in large numbers, hence many do not have highly qualified and experienced staff to assist in the development of the specifications for purchasing new equipment.
This checklist and the sample specifications provide for individual preferences. They are not intended to dictate decisions or restrict bidding. If followed, they will assure a durable piece of maintenance equipment well suited for the uses placed on dump trucks by Indiana Counties, Cities and Towns.
