Big Tex Trailers recently expanded its dump tailer lineup with the new 16LP Super-Duty Ultra Low Profile Dump Trailer.

The model is available in 14- and 16-foot lengths, with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 17,500 pounds, the trailer manufacturer said.

“We’re pleased to add the 16LP to our industry-leading dump trailer lineup,” said Johnathan Bradley, Big Tex vice president of sales. “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.”

Structurally, 16LP features an I-beam frame design with an integrated tongue, and comes equipped with two 8,000-pound Dexter Oil Bath axles, meaning this dump trailer is ready for heavy lifting, Big Tex said. 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, Big Tex maintained, 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; and a rear combo gate designed to function as a spreader gate and as barn doors, 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 ensure lasting durability. And Big Tex says the trailer handles payloads of 13,000 pounds and 7.2 cubic yards in the 14-foot model, and 12,550 pounds and 8.3 cubic yards in the 16-foot model.

Also, when equipped with the available rear slide-in ramp package, the 16LP hauls equipment safely and easily, Big Tex maintained, with four D-rings inside the bed for securing equipment.

“The 16LP is a feature-rich, work-ready dump trailer designed to deliver an unsurpassed user experience,” Bradley said.
