Equipment Type

 Trailers, End-Dump

products

Plastic and aluminum are combined in two lightweight end-dump semitrailers from Wink Trailer.

Mac Trailers and East Manufacturing operate rebuild facilities to fix their own trailers
and truck bodies, and other makes, too.

Steco is now building an aluminum version of the frameless Hauf dump trailer, available in 24- to 40-foot lengths.

Bri-Mar says it adapted its dump-trailer design for strictly off-road applications by trimming the lights, brakes, on-board hydraulics and pricing. The new AG-510 Series is currently available with 5- by 10-foot bed and a choice of either a single axle rated at 5,000 pounds gross vehicle weight or dual walking-beam suspension rated at 10,000 pounds gross vehicle weight.

Steco bought the forms and equipment from the previous builder to produce The Hauf, a popular dump-trailer design that features formed side posts that extend down one side of the trailer under the bed and up the opposite side. The Hauf is built with the same continuous weld of the U-formed side posts as the original.
