Why should you invest in a Haulit Trailer?
A Haulit Trailer competes in a category entirely on its own. With the ability to automatically unload heavy palletized materials while also functioning as a dump trailer for bulk materials, the Haulit trailer extends the abilities of what traditional delivery & dump trailers can do. Below, we will explore the features of a Haulit trailer, exactly what sets it apart, and help you determine if it’s the right trailer to invest in.
Features and Functions
Adding any trailer to your arsenal of equipment is a serious investment. It’s important to compare brands while you’re shopping and make sure you’re getting not only the right trailer for the job but the best trailer for the job. Haulit trailers are loaded with features, benefits, and functions for you, the end-user, in mind.
Patent Pending, the Haulit is the only heavy-duty trailer and delivery system of its kind. No corners were cut in any part of the manufacturing. Please use this Haulit features and function buyers guide to compare Haulit trailers to other trailers as you shop brands, function, and long-term benefits.
1 Year Full Warranty
Most trailer manufacturers offer a limited 10 to 90 day warranty. Haulit is not just any trailer; it is a sophisticated delivery machine. Haulit uses only the very finest components. Haulit manufacturing partner, Diamondback Manufacturing, stands behind their products. We offer a full ONE YEAR Warranty against parts and manufacturing flaws.
Heavy Duty Steel
The Haulit cargo tub and side walls are built with 3/16 structural steel. The frame and undercarriage are built from ¼” steel. Most dump trailers are built with light gauge metal and bracing which leads to warping and deformation. This is where most dump and delivery trailers can keep their upfront costs lower and where you end up spending more for repair or damage.
Haulit wanted a structure that would last and stand up under extreme use without having to be replaced every 3 years. With proper use and maintenance, Haulit are built for 7 to 10 years use. The length of the tub is dependent on cargo capacity. Haulit cargo holds are manufactured in heavy duty 3/16” steel with 11’, 14’, 18’ and 20’ lengths available.
Haulit dump/pallet delivery trailer is built to last on a solid foundational frame of ¼ inch steel tubing. Most manufacturers cut costs by skimping with smaller channels and beams, less cross beams and fewer welds. We take our frame strength to the extreme! Our warranty guarantees it.
Custom Designed Hitch System
Safety and ease of operation are primary benefits of a Haulit trailer. If you’re comparing this trailer to a cheaper trailer, the hitch system is another area where manufacturers can cut costs, so it’s important to know what you’re looking at. In our experience, cheaply built hitches leads to frustration spent figuring out what ball and hitch you need on every truck you use, need for replacement, and often time, not even the right hitch system to handle the GVWR of the load!
Haulit trailers have a custom-designed hitch system built for safety, durability, and ease of operation! We want our own drivers and customers to spend time on deliveries and not frustrated or wasting time at the hitch system!
Haulit trailer custom hitch systems include:
- Safety switch with spring loaded safety cable.
- 7 way electrical plug
- Bolt on chains
- Breakaway Cable
- Vertically Adjustable Hitch
- Drop foot lift jack
- 14K Lb rated 2 5/16” ball hitch
Cross Member Spacing
In order to cut costs, most manufacturers will space their cross members too far apart. Haulit cross members are 2×4 tubing on 24” spacing. The heavy duty steel of the tub and cross member spacing ensures that deck warping will not occur, and heavy loads will always be secure.
Safety Rear Barn Doors
Haulit features rear barn safety doors with industrial strength hinges and latches that are able to fold and pin back securely behind the fendiers when open. This allows for the doors to be tucked and pinned back safely when unloading, even when the bed is raised. When backing up into garages or tight spaces, secured rear barn doors eliminate any damage to the doors or property and make it easy to unload a variety of materials.
14,000 LB Torsion Bar Axles with Electric Brakes
Torsion bar axles are lower to the ground and provide a smoother ride. Haulit trailers, when combined with the towing vehicle exceed D.O.T. regulations of being under CDL licensing requirements of less than 26,000 lbs. Haulit trailers are manufactured with two 7,000 lb torsion bar axles for meeting heavy cargo load needs, a smoother ride, and not requiring a CDL licensed driver in most states.Our Electric Brakes are the best on the market. Towing vehicle break systems and break controller provide absolute safety.
& Electric Brakes
The number one problem with conventional trailers is lights and wiring. No one likes hooking up to a trailer and having their lights not work correctly and no one likes having to fix a wiring issue because of exposed wires getting damaged! Haulit trailers are manufactured with an industrial wiring harness that is encased in steel or conduit. This protects the wiring from debris and or damage.
Every Haulit Trailer has 10 gauge industrial-strength brake wiring. The wiring in our wiring harness ensures full power when stopping. Industrial strength brake controllers and brakes ensure safety in the most extreme conditions. Our wiring is more expensive but is worth the extra safety investment.
Electric Drive Lift, Charger, and Unloading System
With our own drivers making deliveries, we know that the safer and easier the task the more likely new hires can be trained and the more likely they will enjoy their work. Haulit systems are custom designed with a handheld remote operating system industrial-strength battery electrical system. The system is charged directly by the pickup truck or with a 110 regulated charger located in the trailer toolbox front (driver’s side).
A handheld remote-control system allows the operator to control the up/down and live floor front/back motion. This safety and strength of this system saves on workman’s comp claims, allows you to only need one employee/driver for the job, and the ability to make the trailer do the hard work so you can keep the employee safe and happy.
Industrial Electrical Drive Chain and Crossbar Conveyor System
Patent Pending, Haulit trailers are manufactured with a 12,000lb torque electric drive motor for loading and unloading a wide variety of materials. Our electric drive system has proven durable beyond expectation. Cross bars attached to the drive chain accommodates most pallet sizes. 26” spacing between the bars on one side of the cargo hold provides capability to load and unload heavy loads from 3 ,500- 4,000 lbs per pallet. Safety shier bolts are strategically placed to guard against operator abuse.
The manufacturing of this conveyor system, built within the trailer itself, is for the ability to unload palleted and bunk materials like you would with a regular trailer and forklift, while still being able to dump loose debris and bulk materials like with regular dump trucks. With the Haulit, it’s all built into one trailer. Nothing on the market will do what a Haulit does.
Electric Over Hydraulic
Front Lift Ram
A 10,000 lb. capacity front end (electric over hydraulic) front lift ram mimics that of construction dump trucks. Center mounted lift cylinders greatly exceed that of cheaper scissor lift jacks. Haulit delivery trailers are strategically balanced to facilitate unloading loose materials and palletized materials easily. The heavy duty manufacturing of the lift system ensures that all legally weighted cargos can be lifted and unloaded safely.
Industrial Rear Roller Casters
No one likes their concrete, pavement, or especially their driveways ruined by equipment during delivery. Haulit trailers are equipped with industrial-strength roller casters placed at the rear to ensure the unload process leaves surfaces protected.
Encased within the steel or conduit, we include long-lasting L.E.D. DOT compliant lighting on every Haulit built.
Stake Pocket Side Rails
Cargos are all different with different tie down requirements. Safety and functionality is our highest priority. Stake pockets accommodate 2×4 wood posts for vertical extension for bulk materials that extend beyond the height of the trailer such as mulch, bark or debri. Side rails down the entire length of the trailer allows cargo to be tied down anywhere along the edge for safety and security.
Diamond Plate Bolt-on fenders
Dents happen. Fenders get torn up. Fenders often suffer from operator error. Nothing speaks worse for delivery business than trailers showcasing damage and abuse. Haulit trailers are manufactured with diamond plated bolt on fenders for increased strength and easy replacement if ever needed.
Custom Spare Tire and Mounting Bracket
We were annoyed at spare tires being in the rear of pickup beds. With heavy deliveries and debri on the roads, you never know when you might need a spare. If it’s not attached to the trailer, you might not have it with you when you need it, and with deliveries being your business- you need a spare that is convenient and accessible. Haulit provides a custom-designed mounting bracket, mounted on the passenger side of the trailer, to ensure you have it with you anytime you might need it.
No one likes a rusty trailer! Haulit trailers are powder coated using superior powder coating technologies with an etched primer and topcoat for protective finish and long lasting durability!
Reliability is top priority. Instead of rusting, squeaking, or seizing up, our grease zerks on every moving part that needs grease ensures years of smooth operation!
Aesthetics & “Wow” Factor!
The wow factor that comes with this trailer is one of a kind. There’s just nothing like this out there and it’s fun to showcase something incredibly useful to the industry. When you pull up on a jobsite, not only does the sleek and clean design of the trailer make a statement of confidence and professionalism, but when you unload, everyone is blown away!
Our customers tell us to be sure to tell new customers to be prepared to answer questions! (This is also why we offer an incredible referral program! Success in your deliveries is our greatest word of mouth and we want to reward you for it!) We love that our customers feel proud of their trailers, their investment, and what they are able to now do.
Haulit Trailer Extra Features
Custom Tarping/Tie Down System
Custom designed for versatility, durability, and ease of operation, an optional tarp/tie-down system can be added to any Haulit trailer. This system provides superior safety to your loads. Peace of mind, when making deliveries, is critical. The Haulit tarp system attaches right in front of the trailer in a protected storage unit. The tarping extends past the trailer to secure taller loads. Industrial mesh or solid tarps are available, depending on your needs.
Side flaps and nylon straps are sewn into the sides of the tarp make securing loads easy and quick. When delivering sod, the tarping system makes loads D.O.T. safety compliant. No need to fold bulky tarps, search for the right size tarp to cover loads, or worry if your load will be secure. It’s an add-on to the trailers, but we highly recommend it for anyone making deliveries.
The Haulit trailer has the ability to unload a wide range of materials so it’s important to know what you plan on unloading and delivering. For those mainly delivering bulk materials of loose stone and debri, skirting the chain and sprockets with our 6” rubber matting down the entire chain eliminates crushed stones between the chain becoming projectile and adds an extra level of protection to the chain for longevity.
Tippable Skid Plates
No one likes a trailer that can only serve one function. Skid plates are standard on every Haulit trailer, however, tippable skid plates are an optional feature for added versatility for those needing to deliver more bulk materials over palletized or bunk. Tippable into a vertical position, 2 -foot-wide skid plates placed behind the trailer ensure that cargo touches the ground and unload smoothly. When tipped up into the vertical position and secured, materials fall off the rear without the worry of clogging.
