Dump Trailer Liner


Hey Guys,

Since I no longer need to transport my skid steer in the dump box of my trailer I was thinking about getting so sort of liner to help clay and sod dump easier.

I remove a fair amount of sod for deck builds and it is the biggest pain to get out of the box.

I know that full size dump trucks use UHMW but I donít think I need to go to the extent. I was hoping for a paint on product but havenít had much luck finding one.

Was also considering bolting two sheets of FRP to the bottom since they are slick but I donít think they would hold up to demo materials being dumped in.


Any suggestions?

Re: Dump Trailer Liner


I've used heavy sheet plastic for that, but it dumps out with the material, and you have to get it out from under anything on top of it.

Diesel is used for asphalt. Vegetable oil is a reasonably priced alternative for soils.

None of the 13yd trucks here do anything special.

I knew diesel was for asphalt from when I build roads after high school.

Iíll try the vegetable oil for the next load of sod I have Monday. That might be a cheap solution with a garden sprayer.

Re: Dump Trailer Liner


the trailers do not general tip like a 13yd truck . 13yd boxes ,at least the ones I am remembering they round over where sides and bottoms meet .
I recall looking into having something sprayed in my dump trailers bed to make it slide ,or not stick .Did not ever get the cost ,just decided did not want to spend the money .

Re: Dump Trailer Liner


I recall when people were trying to save the earth by converting their cars to run on used vegetable oil.

You could go get used vegetable oil from the Burger King. Spray everything with it.

Everybody could smell you coming. It would be your aroma brand.

Re: Dump Trailer Liner


My trailer lifts to a pretty steep angle, never really have had much trouble with stuff coming out.

Re: Dump Trailer Liner


Yeah that's interesting, never had an issue dumping anything either aside from stuff getting hung up on the D rings near the back.

Re: Dump Trailer Liner


There are coatings that are designed to go on mower decks to keep the grass from sticking. Maybe that would work if you can find a large enough quantity.

Re: Dump Trailer Liner


Never tried it, but plow slick may fit the bill:

It's supposed to be a once a year applicatiin, so it should stand up to abrasion.

Pricey.....

Re: Dump Trailer Liner


My little 5x8 dump has a single hydraulic jack instead of a scissor lift and i struggle to get stuff out most of the time

Scissor lifts put the bed at a higher angle which helps But fortunately most of my debris is Brick and masonry debris so usually it slides out without too much issue except for the stupid d rings that are welded to the floor

A little diesel helps lube up the bed
