A bottom dump AKA a belly dump has a clam shell drop gate that dumps material out of the bottom of a truck trailer. There are various types of bottom dump trailers depending on the application. The main advantage of a bottom dump trailer is the ability to drop product in a given area without leaving the cab as well as the ability to maneuver the dump truck forward and backward if necessary. The main disadvantage with bottom dumps is that they tend to jam more than regular dump trucks especially with coarse materials such as gravel or grain.
