Bri-Mar’s DT610-DP and DT712-DP deckover dump trailers serve as versatile tools, allowing truck owners to have a portable carrying solution for both flatbed and dumping needs. Contractors and do-it-yourselfers can transport mulch, lumber and pallets of paving stone, all with one piece of equipment.

The 20-in. (51 cm) hinged, fold-down sides permit loading palletized material quickly and easily with the entire dump-to-trailer transformation taking only 30 seconds. The weight of the load is supported by a 6-in. (15 cm) tubular mainframe, 3-in. (7.6 cm) channel cross-members and a 12-gauge steel bed.

The DT610-DP with a 6- by 10-ft. (1.8 by 3 m) bed is available in either 7,000 or 10,000 GVWR. The DT712-DP with a 7- by 12-ft. (2 by 3.6 m) bed is available in either 10,000 or 12,000 GVWR.

Positioning of the wheels underneath the deck on both models allows for greater maneuverability in confined areas. A 33-in. (84 cm) deck height enables dumped loads to clear the deck more effectively. Like other Bri-Mar products, the Deckover Dump Trailer utilizes a hydraulic system driven by a Monarch Power unit complete with a 20-ft. (6 m) corded remote control.

To stand independently, these dump trailers feature a BullDog 5k drop leg jack and adjustable coupler. A slipper spring suspension smoothes bumpy roads while the trailer rolls along on radial tires. Both models are equipped with Dexter EZ lube axles for long life and durability. Electric brakes on both axles are standard equipment.

Standard features also include a full-length tarp rail and a seven-way RV plug. Valspar powder coat finish is available in a choice of six colors: black, red, gray, yellow, green or blue. Removal of material is made possible by a one-piece tailgate with chains.

As with other Bri-Mar products, the Dump Trailer comes standard with a two-year warranty.

Optional features include a spare tire and mount, tarp kit, onboard battery charger, wireless remote and a combination gate (dump under and split). For even more volume, owners may purchase 24-in. (61 cm) side and tailgate extensions and board gusset kits.
