Not to be confused with the Dumper from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. For the food product, see Dump Ice Cream Bar.

There's something about driving a vehicle with wheels that are bigger than you. The HVY Dump doesn't let traffic get in its way, and sports a box-bed with an 80-ton capacity. That's a whole lot of migrant workers.
Warstock Cache & Carry description.

The HVY Dump is a haul truck in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

The Dump is a large vehicle, being one of the, if not the largest land-vehicles in the entire Grand Theft Auto series. It has many realistic details, some namely being front ladders and stairs, fire extinguishers and its wheel and tyre tread design. One exception to this is a large metal bar protruding from the side of the truck, which the player uses as a means of entrance.

The truck could be based on multiple CAT dump trucks, but takes most design from the CAT 789C.

The vehicle is reminiscent of the Dumper from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, albeit more modern in appearance and with a similar layout (cab on the left side, large wheels and a large tipper on the back). It always spawns in a yellow/black color with a worn appearance, with the rear tipper always covered in dirt. Unlike the aforementioned vehicle in GTA San Andreas, the tipper is non-functional.

Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

As expected from such a large, both wide and tall vehicle, the Dump is one of the slowest vehicles in GTA V, beaten in slowness by the Dozer and Mower. However, the truck makes up with its power against other vehicles; its sheer size allows it to crush other vehicles, albeit with some struggle and bounce, or push them out of the way with ease. The truck's high exhaust stack also allows it to travel in very deep water without the risk of cutting out.

Despite the vehicle's brute size and shape, the vehicle's durability remains the same as any other vehicle, if not worsened by its vulnerability. The Dump's tires can deflate and burst, and the vehicle cannot withstand even one explosion before exploding completely. It should be noted that while crushing vehicles, cars will commonly explode under the sheer weight of the truck, which can often cause the Dump itself to explode. The large fuel tanks are also vulnerable to gunfire and its slow speed makes it difficult to get out of sticky situations.

The Dump can also be picked up by the Cargobob's hook, despite its weight, although its size again poses a significant threat to both the control and the speed of the helicopter.

  • The word Dump is a double entendre, referencing the slang term which means defecating.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • The Dump, along with the Dock Handler, are the first vehicles in the HD Universe to feature suicide doors.
  • Although the Dump is claimed by game files and website to be manufactured by HVY, there are several Brute badges on the front and around the tipper.
  • By clipping the camera through the vehicle, one can see that the exhaust is not really connected to the engine. The exhaust simply starts from the middle of the whole vehicle, but lacks any sort of L-shaped connector, resulting in an untextured tube when looking from the inner side.
  • If purchased, the Dump cannot be stored in a garage and can only be summoned via Pegasus Lifestyle Management. Some of the Pegasus vehicle spawn points, such as the parking lot at Backlot City, have exits that are too small for the Dump to navigate.
