You’ve probably seen aluminum dump trailers advertised online. The trouble is, not all aluminum trailers are equal. As you can read in our article about aluminum gooseneck trailers, aluminum doesn’t naturally flex like steel, and aluminum welds can’t take the extra strain that a trailer puts on them in operation. A dump trailer box is always twisting when it’s in use. Some manufacturers might give up, but not EBY. They’ve been making all-aluminum trailers for 80 years. It’s the only thing they do.
EBY uses custom extruded pieces instead of standard tubing, which lets them build trailers with all the strength and flexibility at the right places. In each corner, such as at the floor-to-wall transition or in corners of the box, they place a single piece that the sides can be riveted onto and which spans the corners. That allows for the normal flexing and twisting that comes from daily use. This engineering matters. We saw an aluminum dump trailer not long ago that was just two years old, but was already cracking at the seams.
The floor of an EBY dump trailer is made of custom extruded pieces with 3″ supports every 12″, and the floor is just over 1/4″ thick. This makes a sturdy and lightweight trailer. For comparable durability, a steel dump trailer will tend to be at least 750 lbs. heavier. An aluminum dump trailer lets you haul more for the same durability, and will probably last longer, since it won’t rust out.
EBY’s aluminum dump trailers come with one of the best wireless remotes, an AC battery charger, and a spring-loaded tarp. They’ve got a 2-way combo gate, which can be in one of two styles, barn door or spreader.
The trailers come standard with slide-out aluminum ramps and drop-down stabilizers, for loading equipment. The bed has 5/8 D-rings to help tie down a machine.
The dump is raised with a cylinder in front of the bed, which is the most efficient design with few moving parts. The trailers have a 45 degree dump angle. EBY makes an electric jack for their trailers and a hydraulic jack option will be coming out soon as well.
Because EBY aluminum dump trailers are the best, they don’t stay in stock very long! But if we don’t have it in stock, we can order yours today.
Dump trailer sides can be made taller in 6″ increments, since EBY custom extrudes their side pieces in that size.
Since EBY custom extrudes their components, they can optimize for strength, weight, and connectivity. This particular piece is designed to have multiple other parts riveted to it or otherwise connecting to it. Looks like high-tech rocket science, because it is!
EBY trailers use huck bolts, rather than welding, where it counts
