About Belt Trailers
A belt trailer utilizes a rubber conveyor belt that runs down the length of the trailer to grab onto and unload cargo. Typically, sloped plastic sides guide the material down onto the conveyor belt to make unloading an automatic task that the driver can complete from within the truck. Belt trailers are often referred to as “self-unloading” trailers and are able to unload an entire commercial trailer (40-53 ft. long) in as little as five minutes.
Companies that specialize in municipal waste hauling or recycling often make use of belt trailers, not only for efficiency but also because operators don’t need to get near potentially hazardous waste when unloading. Construction industries also employ belt trailers to haul road materials such as gravel and asphalt for the same reasons.
Transwest provides both sales and service of commercial-grade belt trailers. Our staff understands the industry and knows which brands to trust. We also know when and how to properly maintain your belt trailer. When you purchase a trailer with us, you can rest assured that you’ve got the right equipment for the job with one company you can count on from start to finish.
