edumper – this massive electric dump truck never needs charged

Construction trucks are cool. There’s just something weirdly fascinating about them although the allure of the eDumper isn’t a mystery. This is a giant dump truck that runs on electricity and never needs to be plugged in. It works with regenerative braking and this article breaks down that concept.

It’s not a new system, most passenger sized electric cars have a similar system built in to help them gain some energy from the act of slowing down. But this is bonus power for those cars and in this big guy it’s its sole power.

Since this vehicle is constantly moving up and down an incline and braking, it is in a position to constantly recharge energy. Physics explains this because science is cool. Check out the article above to get the ins and outs and the video below to see the eDumper in action.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
