HMI Side Dump Trailer


Dakota Equipment is manufactured by Hawkes Manufacturing located in East Grand Forks, MN.  Unlike most side dump trailers, HMI Side Dump trailers have a unique torque tube located inside the frame. This torque tube decreases trailer twist to increase stability. This helps reduce rollover due to materials sticking inside the tub.  The HMI side-dump trailers offer a 45-degree dump angle, 6″ tilt cylinders, and a greaseless pivot bushing. So if you would like to keep all your wheels on the ground call HMI today.
