As you are seated, adjust the mirror to ensure that you have a good view to the back of the truck bed and the seat in a way that you have easy access to all gears and pedals.
Keep your feet on the clutch and brake pedals while starting the truck and start off putting the shifter in the first gear.
Slowly release the clutch as you apply pressure on the gas pedal. Shift the truck into second gear as it gains some momentum then into third when it reaches 10 or 15 mph.
Be informed that the fourth gear is normally required while driving on highways around 35 mph or more otherwise it is fine to drive around 30 mph.
As a safety precaution, always ensure that the bed of the truck is fully down before you drive because accidents can happen when you raise the bed and any low hanging wires come in contact.
To vacate the bed, bring it on a steep road or hill in such a way that the front of the truck pointed upwards while the tailgate is unhooked. This will empty any remaining load in the truck’s bed.
It is also advised to drive fractionally below speed limit because the design of a dump truck may not bear any sharp turns.
