Big Tex Expand Lineup with 16LP Dump Trailer

Big Tex Trailers has unveiled another key addition to its dump trailer lineup, the 16LP Super-Duty Ultra Low Profile Dump Trailer, during this month’s NATDA Trade Show. The model is available in 14- and 16-feet lengths, with a GVWR of 17,500 pounds.

“We’re pleased to add the 16LP to our industry-leading dump trailer lineup,” said Big Tex VP of Sales Johnathan Bradley. “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. Additional standard features include a 12,000-pound top-wind drop-leg jack, a 12V 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, 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 both a spreader gate and as barn doors, secured with D-ring door holdbacks.

There’s a 2-inch square tubing top rail and 24-inch-tall, 10-gauge sides with formed channel supports. The 14-foot payload capacity is 13,000 pounds and 7.2 cubic yards; and 12,550 pounds and 8.3 cubic yards for the 16-foot model.

Inside the bed, 4 D-rings allow for equipment to be secured.

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