The conveyor built into the chassis moves the load towards the rear door without the risk of side spillage associated with the unloading of traditional dumper trailers. The load mass is evenly supported by a series of robust crossbeams, instead of a single metal rail. Chains pull the conveyor to ensure a smooth, even and fail-safe operation.
2 hydraulic motors, 2 planetery gear reducers
Located at the side rear, a main sprocket gear shaft pulls the conveyor even when it's fully loaded. Driven by planetary gear reducers coupled to hydraulic motors and using hydraulic pressure from the tractor, the load is safely and steadily moved to the rear of the semi-trailer. In addition, the hydraulic control allows you to reduce conveyor speed or even stop it completely if needed.
Tarp cover mechanism
We design and build the fully adapted tarp cover system that comes with every live-bottom trailer we manufacture to ensure that our customers can operate in rain, wind, and snows. An electric motor located at the front of the trailer on the drivers's side opens and closes the tarp to protect the load. And because these are our own systems, we can also repair them quickly and easily.
Well-identified electrical, pneumatic and hydraulic connectors for quick and simple hook-ups enabling you to interchange any tractors.
Easy-to-install emergency crank
Complete your work day without loss of money in case of a power failure. Hand crank is designed to be operated with driver's feet on the ground to avoid any chance of injury.
Light up the unloading area to ensure safety during early morning and nighttime deliveries.
Interior bin lights
Makes loading up and after-delivery inspections quick and easy.
Keeps materials at their original temperature longer - ideal for keeping asphalt hot and allowing operations to continue even in winter conditions.
Low oil pressure operation
No need for hight pressure hydraulic pump.
Quick access tool compartment
Located in the trailer and accessible from the tractor platform.
Automatic rear fender mechanism
Automatically lifts rear fenders as soon as the rear door is activated or as soon as the trailer backs up.
Maintenance-free conveyer mechanism
Automatic oiling system maintains conveyor system's operation at optimum performance at all times.
Rear door features 2 security hooks that open automatically when the door command is activated and close after the rear door is shut.
