Our hopper bottom trailer fleet is distinguished by the gates on the bottom used to haul heavy materials such as sand, gravel, and crushed stone. A bottom dump is best used when material needs to be unloaded into an opening on the ground such as a grain facility, or a facility that has size restrictions that will not accommodate the traditional end dump trailer. In some cases, the bottom dump trailer can be used to spread aggregates over a horizontal surface such as a build-pad or roadway.
The Buchheit Hopper fleet has a number of features that set us apart from other fleets in the region.
With an average hopper age of 4.6 years young, we run one of the most modern fleets in the industry. Our proprietary environmental tarp system ensures your load will stay contaminant free while at the same time keeping it fully contained in the hopper trailer and following all environmental regulations needed to travel within EPA guidelines. Like all Buchheit Logistics equipment, your hopper load travels with air-ride technology. Off-load pneumatics, standard on all of our hopper bottom trailers, assist in delivering the contents of your load in a timely, efficient manner.
Speed, accuracy and efficiency
With our hopper bottom fleet, you can unload faster and in tighter spaces than with our bottom dump trailers. Additionally the bottom dump offers a safer unloading approach not possible with end dump trailers. Our hopper bottom trailers feature on-board loading gauges to ensure accurate settings for the driver and logistics team.
