What is a tri-axle dump truck?

It's a dump truck with four axles--the steer axle in front and three axles in back. One of them moves up and down via a control in the cab, so the tires aren't on the road if the truck's not loaded. A tri-axle dump truck carries more weight than a one-axle or two-axle truck.

What average weight of a dump truck?

Which weight? Gross weight? Tare weight? What configuration? 1 ton pickup? Single axle Class 7/8 truck? Tandem axle truck? Tri-axle truck? Quad axle truck? Quint axle truck? Centipede? "Superdump" quint with Strong Arm? Transfer truck? Tractor-trailer end dump, or belly dump, or side dump? Try to narrow down the variables a bit. There's really no way of knowing what an "average" dump truck is without knowing statistics of how many single axle, tandem, tri-axle, quad, quint, centipede, and superdump dump trucks are out there - to the best of my knowledge, no such statistics have been compiled. At the company I work for, our tandem axle dumps (with steel dump bodies) weigh between 23,000 and 24,500... the 23,000 lbs. trucks are the Peterbilt 330s, and the 24,500 lb. trucks are the Kenworth T800s with "rock tub" steel bodies, high lift gates, and split gate beds. These are the tare (empty) weights, not the loaded weights.
