Air reservoirs on a truck

03/08/2017 Leave a comment

Just the other day, while I was walking past this huge dump truck, I happened to glance at its chassis and saw that it was endowed with four air reservoirs. Many trucks use air brakes and the compressed air is stored in these air reservoirs. Most of the time I see only a couple of them but this is the first time that I have seen five air reservoirs on this dump truck. I suppose the air reservoir is to store the compressed air used for the tipper at the back…and the tipper on this truck was huge!
