Dump Trailers Replace CDLs

Staff | September 28, 2010

Tally Construction uses seven 14-foot Bri-Mar Dump Trailers to move demolition debris and materials without Commercial Drivers Licenses (CDLs). In Tally's Tenafly, N.J., market, moving typical roll-off dumpsters requires a CDL. But pickup-truck drivers with regular drivers licenses can tow the Bri-Mar dumps loaded to less than 10,000 pounds GVW.

"Eliminating the need for a CDL license means that any one of our 23 trucks is always available to pull a Bri-Mar for me," says Peter Jomides, project manager.

The trailer Tally orders has a GVW of 14,000 pounds and weighs 4,480 pounds empty. All have wireless remote controls as well as 44-inch-high sides and split barn-door gates that extend the capacity to 12 cubic yards. Twin telescopic cylinders, electric brakes, Dexter EZ Lube axles, slipper spring suspension, radial tires 
and six-foot ladder ramps under the bed are all standard features.

Bri-Mar trailers have actually helped sell Tally Construction services in upscale neighborhoods near Manhattan. Drivers easily move and park Bri-Mar trailers without damaging paving stones, sprinkler systems or lawns.
