Dump trailers are a great tool for loading and unloading heavy hauls easily and efficiently. These trailers use hydraulics to lift the trailer bed from its frame.
Bumper Pull Dump Trailers
Dump trailers come in different sizes and weights, which means owning one doesn't require owning a heavy-duty pickup truck. Bumper pull dump trailers can be hitched to the back of a vehicle, allowing more versatility for towing. Depending on the size of the trailer, it can be easily towed by an SUV. This versatility makes these trailers great for small handymen projects around the house or farm to large-scale projects requiring more capacity.
Gooseneck Dump Trailers
Used by construction firms, agricultural operations, and those in the transport sector, gooseneck dump trailers have requirements that bumper pulls do not. These trailers cannot be towed by any vehicle and usually need special equipment that doesn't come standard on most trucks. However, because of their design, they are capable of being longer while keeping their stability. Often gooseneck dump trailers are longer, wider, and weigh more, allowing them to handle heavy loads with ease.
Deckover Dump Trailers
Deckover dump trailers are an excellent option for anyone who needs to load and transport pallets regularly. These trailers are designed with the body and bed sitting on top of the wheels instead of in between them. This design allows the trailer bed to be built wider, leading to more capacity.
A deckover dump trailer with side gates allows for more effortless loading because the fenders do not get in the way. However, because these trailers sit higher, it can be slightly more difficult to throw debris or other objects over the sides.
