Hydraulic Dump Trailer
“It’s the only trailer in the industry that offers the Hijacker hydraulic jack with 10,000 lbs. lifting capacity,” says Wendell Witmer, BWISE Trailers. “Our dump angle is the steepest in the industry, and the double acting tailgate is also unique to the industry.”
The tailgate pivots at the top and the bottom. Depending on which is unlocked, the hydraulic cylinders lift it from the bottom for dumping or lower it from the top forming a drive-on ramp.
“The trailer has rear stabilizers for loading heavy equipment,” says Witmer.
The trailer comes standard with a wireless remote, as well as a corded remote for control of all hydraulics. That includes tailgate, bed lift and hydraulic jack.
Witmer emphasizes the quality control the company puts into the trailers, with nearly the entire trailer fabricated in-house, including cylinders and hoists. The frame is 2 by 8-in. steel tubing with 10-ga. flooring and 12-ga. sides. Metal is phosphate washed with a zinc powder primer and powder topcoat.
“We offer a full 5-year warranty,” he says.
The UDT comes in 6 models with payloads ranging from 10,680 lbs. to 11,660 lbs. All are equipped with two 7,000-lb., 4-in. drop axles with slipper spring suspension and electric brakes.
Bed lengths include 12, 14 and 16 ft. with a common 82-in. bed width and a 48-in. bed height. Sides include a 20-in. fold down for easy loading with compact tractors.
Beds also include a spring-loaded tarp kit with a tie-down rail in the front for secure hauling of loose material. Six D-rings mounted on the bed sides secure equipment while leaving the floor clear for easy cleanout.
“Suggested retail prices will vary depending on size, but they range from $12,000 to $15,000, depending on size and whether they are equipped with bumper pull or gooseneck,” says Shawn Myers, BWISE Trailers.
