In building and construction business, there always comes a time when the building materials such as ballast, sand, stones and all other ingredients required for a good concrete mix to be transported from one point to another. This transportation can prove to be a very tricky affair given the weight of these materials and the distance they have to be hauled in order to get them to the construction sites. A bottom dump trailer, San Antonio pulled the appropriate tractor is one of the ways through which building materials can be hauled.

Depending on its size and number of axles, these machines can be able to haul building materials weighing over thirty tones. However, many countries have policies about the maximum load per axle allowed on their roads. This too has to be considered when purchasing a bottom dump trailer or when loading the same.

A typical end dump trailer is one that has a built in hydraulic system that is able to lift and tip its container where the building materials have been loaded emptying its load in just a few minutes. This has been a quick method of unloading thabottom dump trailert saves time and money. Although loading of the same may require a bit of equipment and labour, this type of trailer can be able to set off to its destination with a very limited work force consisting of just the driver alone and maybe someone else to monitor the dumping process from the outside.

A bottom dump trailer on the other hand does not have to tip its container in order to offload. Instead of lifting its container to dump its load at the end like a typical end dump trailer, a bottom dump trailer, San Antonio has a hydraulically controlled door at the bottom of the container that is opened in order to empty the trailer.  

With this type of unloading, this type of trailer is able to maintain its stability during the offloading process and thus can be able to offload even on the most uneven surfaces. This is also an advantage over the end dump trailer since many construction sites are usually very un-even. A slanted or uneven ground increases the chance of toppling for end dump trailer since the centre of gravity is increased drastically when the container is tipped.

You can find a bottom dump trailer 40ft long with a gate opening of 54 by 108 inch for dumping the loaded contents. When purchasing one of these trailers, special attention should be paid to the suspension, the size and number of axles since this will determine the actual load it can carry and the kind of tractor it can be matched with.
