Loading And Unloading A Dump Trailer ! WARNING Do not transport flammable, explosive, poisonous or other dangerous materials in your trailer. The exception is fuel in the tank of vehicles or equipment being hauled. ! WARNING RAISED DUMP BODY CAN DROP OR TIP OVER SUDDENLY. YOU AND OTHERS CAN DIE OR BE SERIOUSLY INJURED. YOU MUST: Have trailer on level, firm ground before dumping. Keep others away while dumping. Stay at controls until dump body is down. NEVER LEAVE THE SCENE WHEN DUMP BODY IS LIFTED. Lock hoist controls after use. Have dump body down before moving trailer. Use body prop and have dump body empty before getting under raised dump body. If the hoist does not lift the load, manually reduce the load - obtain service from a qualified hydraulics technician. NEVER ASSIST THE HOIST. (i.e., with a jack, crane, heavy equipment, etc.) If the load does not leave the dump body, lower the dump body and manually free the load. Never attempt to free a load from a raised dump body. LOADING BULK MATERIAL Couple the trailer to the tow vehicle. Park the trailer and tow vehicle on a firm and level surface, both side-to-side 96 and front-to-rear. Check the dump body for damage. Repair before loading trailer. Close and latch trailer gates. Tell the loader operator the GVWR of your trailer. The loader operator will have an approximate weight of the material to be loaded. Use common sense when loading. If you are uncertain of the weight of the material, load a small amount and weigh your trailer. It is much easier to add to a light load than to remove material from an overloaded trailer.
