You can count on the reliability of this trailer’s safety features. One of its vital components is the complete break-away system with charger. This ensures optimum stopping power in case the trailer gets unhooked from the vehicle. It also has a zip breakaway cable which is considered a very reliable connection between the vehicle and trailer. There are also Nev-R-Adjust electric brakes on all hubs to ensure safety. These brakes automatically adjust to appropriate clearances during travel.
Ramps and Dovetail
The combination of ramps and dovetail makes loading and unloading quicker and easier. This trailer is fitted with two ramps measuring 5-foot long and 20-inch wide channel knee ramps with spring-assist. The ramps stand up when not in use, giving you full use of your bed. A 36-inch cleated dovetail is also available on +3 models.
Dexter axles are among the most durable in the industry. This trailer has D8ON 8,000 Dexter Axles which outperform others for strength and a smoother ride.
Slipper Spring Suspension
The 16ET Super Duty Tandem Axle Equipment Trailer comes with a multi-leaf slipper spring suspension with equalizer. This type of suspension absorbs shock from the road and reduces wear and tear of the trailer. It also keeps the trailer level when you encounter uneven surfaces. You need this type of suspension if you frequently travel on bumpy roads. It will help keep your load stay in place with the weight evenly distributed.
Radial tires are superior in performance compared to bias ply tires. They produce a softer ride with less vibration and they also offer better fuel economy. Big Tex Trailers installs 17.5-inch radial tires on this bumper pull for a better towing experience.
