Big Tex Trailers recently unveiled the redesigned 14LP Ultra Low Profile Dump Trailer.

With a durable new frame design and premium feature set, the 14LP delivers lasting strength and incredible value, the trailer manufacturer said. For users, it helps make loading safer, easier and more convenient.

“From landscaping and agricultural, to roofing, construction and remodeling, the 14LP is an outstanding new option for a wide range of customers,” said Johnathan Bradley, vice president of sales for Big Tex. “We’ve redesigned this popular model to be even more durable and feature-rich, providing added value and ultimate reliability.”

Notably, the tongue and center beam of the 14LP are one continuous piece of 8-inch I-beam, resulting in a lower profile and more robust design. The trailer’s ultra-low 28-inch deck height allows for more ergonomic loading of materials as well as a safer angle for loading equipment. Beneath the bed, a class-leading scissor lift—rather than the more common dual-ram system—keeps the bed and frame properly aligned and enables smoother raising/lowering with less maintenance required.

Without question, durability is a defining trait of the new 14LP, from the heavy-duty 10-gauge dump box with a single-piece floor, to the reinforced square-tube steel top rail. Providing a sturdy foundation are two 7,000-pound cambered Dexter Brand axles, EZ-Lube hubs, 16-inch radial tires, and Nev-R-Adjust electric brakes.

The 14LP arrives equipment ready, Big Tex said, with standard rear stabilizers and an optional 6.5-foot rear slide-in ramp package. For added versatility, a rear combo-gate with easy-to-use holdbacks can be opened as barn doors or used as a spreader gate. Inside the bed, four D-rings are included for securing cargo.

The trailer’s LED lighting package is a brighter and longer-lasting solution than traditional incandescent lighting, the company claimed, while a sealed modular wiring harness protects the wiring from road debris and the elements. Additional standard features include a 12,000-pound side-wind, drop-leg tongue jack; a 12-volt Interstate deep-cycle battery with a 110-volt, 5-amp onboard charger; an integrated tarp shroud and roll tarp with side J-hooks; and a new integrated side step on the marker light box.

“More customers turn to Big Tex for industry-leading trailers that are built to last and provide exceptional value,” Bradley said. “The 14LP Dump Trailer is an exciting new option that delivers on the promise of durability, convenience and ease of use.”
