Big Tex Trailers has added to its dump trailer lineup with the 16LP Super-Duty Ultra Low Profile Dump Trailer.

The model is available in 14- and 16-foot lengths, with a GVWR of 17,500 pounds.

“This super-duty model combines durable construction and premium features with a user-friendly ultra-low profile to provide customers with a superior new choice for their hauling needs,” says Big Tex vice president of sales Johnathan Bradley.

Structurally, the 16LP features an I-beam frame design with an integrated tongue and comes equipped with two 8,000-pound Dexter Oil Bath axles. Additional standard features include a 12,000-pound top-wind drop-leg jack, a 12-volt Interstate deep-cycle battery with onboard charger, double broke diamond plate fenders, a self-contained electric/hydraulic scissor hoist, and Nev-R-Adjust electric brakes on all hubs.

For transporting large loads of gravel, soil, or other loose materials, the 16LP includes an array of purposefully designed features, including:

  • A standard-equipped crank-style roll tarp and fully formed front tarp shroud
  • Side and rear J-hooks for tarp control
  • Rear stabilizer stands
  • A rear combo gate designed to function as both a spreader gate and as barn doors. The gate is easily secured with D-ring door holdbacks.
  • A 2-inch square tubing top rail and 24-inch tall 10-gauge sides with formed channel supports designed for durability.

Payload is rated at 13,000 pounds and 7.2 cubic yards for the 14-foot model; 12,550 pounds and 8.3 cubic yards for the 16-foot model.

When equipped with the available rear slide-in ramp package, the 16LP is primed to haul equipment safely and easily. Inside the bed, 4 D-rings allow for equipment to be secured.
