Big Tex Debuts Newly Redesigned 14LP Ultra Low Profile Dump Trailer
Mt. Pleasant, TX (May 2, 2019) - Big Tex Trailers unveiled the newly redesigned 14LP Ultra Low Profile Dump Trailer. With a durable new frame design and premium feature set, the 14LP delivers lasting strength and incredible value. For users, it makes loading safer, easier and more convenient than ever before.
“From landscaping and agricultural to roofing, construction and remodeling, the 14LP is an outstanding new option for a wide range of customers,” said Johnathan Bradley, Vice President of Sales for Big Tex. “We’ve redesigned this popular model to be even more durable and feature-rich, providing added value and ultimate reliability.”
Notably, the tongue and center beam of the 14LP are one continuous piece of 8” I-beam, resulting in a lower profile and more robust design. The trailer’s ultra-low 28” deck height allows for more ergonomic loading of materials as well as a safer angle for loading equipment. Beneath the bed, a class-leading scissor lift — rather than the more common dual-ram system — keeps the bed and frame properly aligned and enables smoother raising/lowering with less maintenance required.
Without question, durability is a defining trait of the new 14LP, from the heavy-duty 10-gauge dump box with a single-piece floor, to the reinforced square-tube steel top rail. Providing a sturdy foundation are two 7,000# cambered Dexter Brand axles, EZ-Lube hubs, 16” radial tires, and Nev-R-Adjust electric brakes.
The 14LP arrives equipment ready, with standard rear stabilizers and an optional 6.5’ rear slide-in ramp package. For added versatility, a rear combo-gate with easy-to-use holdbacks can be opened as barn doors or used as a spreader gate. Inside the bed, four D-rings are included for securing cargo.
The trailer’s L.E.D. lighting package is a brighter and longer-lasting solution than traditional incandescent lighting, while a sealed modular wiring harness protects the wiring from road debris and the elements. Additional standard features include a 12,000# side-wind, drop-leg tongue jack; a 12V Interstate deep-cycle battery with a 110V, 5-amp on-board charger; an integrated tarp shroud and roll tarp with side J-hooks; and a new integrated side step on the marker light box.
“More customers turn to Big Tex for industry-leading trailers that are built to last and provide exceptional value,” said Bradley. “The 14LP Dump Trailer is an exciting new option that delivers on the promise of durability, convenience and ease of use.”
