Meet the Super-Duty, Ultra Low Profile 16LP
Big Tex Trailers unveiled another key addition to its dump trailer lineup, the 16LP Super-Duty Ultra Low Profile Dump Trailer, during the 2019 NATDA Trade Show. The model is available in 14’ and 16’ lengths, with a GVWR of 17,500 pounds. It 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.
“We’re pleased to add the 16LP to our industry-leading dump trailer lineup,” said Big Tex Vice President 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, easily secured with D-ring door holdbacks. A 2” square tubing top rail and 24”-tall 10-gauge sides with formed channel supports ensure lasting durability. Payload is impressive, as well: 13,000 pounds and 7.2 cubic yards for the 14’ model; 12,550 pounds and 8.3 cubic yards for the 16’ model.
When equipped with the available rear slide-in ramp package, the 16LP is primed to haul equipment safely and easily. 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.
