Understanding End Dump Trailers

End dump trailers are the workhorses of the hauling industry. They elevate their dump box and release the load from the back, making them ideal for transporting a wide variety of materials. Although we work with a lot of steel bodies, some end dump trailers are made of aluminum to reduce weight. End dump trailers typically feature higher sides compared to belly or side dump trailers. This design provides a larger capacity, allowing end dumps to manage bigger loads of rough materials efficiently.

How Does an End Dump Trailer Work?

The mechanism of an end dump trailer is straightforward yet highly efficient. The trailer elevates its dump box, usually through hydraulic means, and the material is released from the rear. This method of unloading is quick and effective, making end dump trailers a preferred choice for many operators.

  • Stockpiling Aggregate Materials: Excellent for moving large quantities of materials like gravel, sand, and soil.
