New Dump Trailers
A very important thing to consider when purchasing a dump trailer is whether or not your vehicle is capable and set up for towing the trailer. We stock dump trailers as large as a 83” x 16’ model that has a 14,000 lb GVWR. In order to tow this trailer safely, you need to make sure that your tow vehicle has a 14,000 lb or higher towing capacity as well as a hitch, ball mount, and ball that are all rated for 14,000 lbs or higher. If your vehicle is not prewired with a factory brake control, our service technicians can install a quality aftermarket unit for you.
Dump trailers are incredibly versatile trailers that allow you to haul supplies, debris, and other items to a dump site without investing in a full-size dump truck. They are also great for spreading mulch, soil, and hauling equipment like tractors, bobcats, and mini-excavators.
One thing that is very important to consider when you are trying to determine what dump trailer to purchase is size. Dump trailers come in a variety of sizes with a variety of axle sizes. If you are looking to use your dump trailer as an equipment trailer as well, you will need one that is at least 7 feet wide that comes with ramps for loading. If you are planning on hauling large amounts of debris and materials away from a construction site, you will need to make sure that you purchase a dump trailer with the appropriate payload.
A very common feature found on dump trailers are load tarps. If you are hauling mulch or brush, you will need a tarp to secure the load so that the material does not go flying out of the trailer while you are on the road. This is not only dangerous, but there is also a good chance that you could get hit with a hefty ticket if you are caught with a load that is not properly secured. The sides of a dump trailer are not typically very tall, but they will often come with stake pockets that allow you to build them to whatever height you would like them to be. Higher sides give you more storage space and security for supplies and equipment.
A few options that you will come across when shopping the market for a new dump trailer are things like scissor hoists, ramps, adjustable couplers, battery chargers, and d-rings. Scissor hoists are very common on heavier duty dump trailers. They are considered an upgrade over dual lift cylinders that are used to raise and lower the dump bed. Scissor hoists guarantee that the bed will raise and lower smoothly time and time again. Ramps allow you to load your skidsteers and other equipment onto the dump trailer, making it much more versatile. They can either be pinned onto the sides of the trailer or stored underneath the deck. Adjustable couplers are nice because they allow you to adjust the hitch height of the trailer to make it ride level with whatever tow vehicle you are using. Battery chargers allow you to plug the trailer in to shore power and charge the battery while it is not in use. Dump trailer batteries will be trickle charged by the tow vehicle's battery while connected, but having the ability to plug into household power is a nice feature. D-rings are typically welded to the inside of dump trailers, and they allow you to strap down things like equipment, pallets and machinery.
Dump trailers are both practical and versatile, and they are an excellent choice for buyers who need to transport and dispose of loads like dirt, gravel, and building materials, as well as those who need a trailer that can also be used for hauling equipment and small machinery.
