End dump trailers offer a variety of advantages as far as dump trailers go. They have been the most common dump trailers for many years - used in construction, road building as well as agriculture. End dumps typically have higher sides than other dump trailers allowing them to carry more volume. Their versatility allows them to be used to haul a wide variety of materials including rocks, gravel, soil, sand, asphalt, demolition debris and even semi-liquid materials.
