72″ Tandem Axle Dump (D3) Quick Walkaround


Hey guys, today we are going to take a look at a custom 12′ D3 Tandem Axle Dump Trailer. the D3 features a 72″ wide dump bed built with a heavy-duty 10 gauge steel floor and heavy-duty 10 gauge steel sides. This makes the D3 dump trailer ideal for moving aggregates like sand and gravel to the job site or home landscaping project. At the front, we have a 12,500 pound 2 5/16 a frame coupler on a 5” channel tongue, however the D3 is also available in a pintle configuration. We’ve equipped this trailer with our premium wiring harness, an 8K top wind drop leg jack and a safety breakaway system. We have added a solar charger on top of the lockable front toolbox to extend the amount of uses by maintaining the battery when the trailer is not in use. To improve over-the-side accessibility, the sides of the D3 are 20″ tall and we have equipped them with 4 stake pockets on each side. We have also added 4 additional d rings in the bed to give additional tie down options with smaller equipment and materials. We have added a spare tire to the curb side of this trailer for safer access in case of a road side emergency. To help keep debris and loose aggregates from blowing out while in transit, we have equipped this trailer with a retractable mesh tarp. This tarping solution features a ball bearing gear system that smoothly tensions or retracts the tarp when not in use. The bed of the D3 is lifted to 40 degree dump angle by a heavy duty 5 inch cylinder with premium hydraulic components. For more heavy duty applications, this D3 has been upgraded with crossmembers on a close 12 inch spacing. This option helps reinforce the 10 gauge steel floor while giving more rigidness to the frame of the dump bed. For our running gear, we have two 5,200 pound dexter axles with 225/75R15 radial tires, giving us a 9,900 lb. GVWR. The D3 is finished out with a 2 way gate that functions as barn doors for loading equipment or as a spreader to evenly distribute aggregates.
