east dump trailer

All East® dump trailers are designed to maximize payload, and deliver strength and durability to meet the needs of all types of dump trailer applications. These trailers stay on the job longer, reducing downtime and increasing profits. By incorporating light-weight and longer-lasting components into each and every trailer, East has earned the reputation of having higher resale value.

Genesis Smooth-Sided Aluminum

We revolutionized dump trailers with our smooth-sided Genesis® design that customers tell us saves up to ½-mile per gallon compared to ribbed trailers. And the more aerodynamic design is easier to clean, and will not show any pings and dings on the outside like external post-style walls. And, the outboard Genesis design provides more capacity than external post-style trailers.

Hybrid Dump – For quite some time East engineers have been working on the best of both worlds – a hybrid – a square-box trailer with a round bottom. A trailer with the advantages of both kinds of trailers. A trailer we’d be confident to pull. And own. Click here to read more.

Steel Dump – The body of the steel dump trailer is made from Hardox® AR450 grade steel to handle tough construction and demolition work because it resists twisting, flexing and cracking. Our frame steel dump trailer gives you maximum uptime and reliability, a lower center of gravity, greater payback at resale and a baked-on paint finish. Click here to read more.

Stronger Rear Posts: The ¼-inch-thick rear corner posts wrap completely around top and bottom rails and interlock to add strength, reducing side-to-side distortion.

Coal/Grain Doors: Available in 12- and 20-inch widths, East coal/grain doors are equipped with UHMW plastic bearings and self-lubricating grease fittings at the pivot point, providing smooth, easy operation and low maintenance. For precise control flow, each door locks over center with the ability to lock at various positions.

Tougher Tailgate Hardware: Top hinges and bottom latch are bolt-on for easy replacement. Anti-corrosive coating and shims protect steel-to-aluminum connections.

Filter Protects ABS: An air filter in the service line protects the ABS module from micro-particles entering the system.

Galvanized Tailgate Pins: Steel tailgate pins are shrouded with stainless steel gaskets to protect steel-to-aluminum chassis connections.

Durable Hinge Shoe: Uniquely engineered for longer life, the dump hinge shoe is crafted from hardened ductile steel, with twin grease valleys machined inside for easy 360° lube around the pin.

Strong Solid Box Cross Member: Solid box extruded cross member design provides support under floor seams for longer floor life. U-shaped cross members have special contact point flanges for extra support, and welds are positioned away from high-stress areas.

Premium-Grade Aluminum Floors: Built of 5083 H321 aluminum alloy for higher yield strength.

Bolted Gussets Reduce Cracks: Chassis cross member gussets are bolted – not welded – to allow the assembly the flexibility to give under normal stresses and vibrations, yet still maintain a positive connection.

Sealed Lighting System: Sealed plug connections are designed to prevent moisture infiltration and corrosion.

Sealed Wiring: Sealed wire harness enclosed in water-resistant rear panel. Water-tight conduit and sealed beam lamps complete the system, resulting in fewer corrosion-related lighting problems.

Trouble-Free LED Lights: Trouble-free operation from PC-rated marker lights in all locations, providing 180° superior visibility while drawing 10% to 25% fewer amps than traditional lights.

Corrosion-Resistance Paint Process: Steel components are carefully prepared, primed and coated with a baked-on paint, producing a durable, attractive finish that resists corrosion.

Elite Wheel-End Warranty: Standard wheel-end parts are warranted for 5 years or 350,000 miles. The assembly is filled with synthetic oil, which resists high-temperature breakdown.

Tailgate Swing Direction:

An actuator handle located at the bottom rear of the body enables you to convert the tailgate from side swing to top swing and vice versa—all without leaving the ground. The latch that engages and releases the top pin is hidden and protected inside the rear post itself.

Sideswing Tailgate Guide Ramp Roller:

Prevents top pin misalignment by guiding the gate and top pin back into position during closing, making the gate much easier and faster to close.
