Description

Using a hot box as an asphalt hauler to carry asphalt millings for patching and pothole repair is the most economical method of keeping the material hot and pliable even if the weather is cold. It’s also much more effective than using pre-packaged material.

Not all asphalt repair jobs require the need for large equipment; we realize that many repairs may only require smaller more compact equipment. This is why we are proud to offer this compact asphalt hauler trailer that has a budget price.

The BIG A KM-4000T TEPX is the ideal 2 Ton Hot Asphalt Trailer Hauler designed for smaller municipalities or contractors who need a heated asphalt hauler trailer without the need for a dump bed. Holding 4000 lbs of material, the BIG A 4000T is perfect for those smaller jobs where you would not need a larger asphalt trailer.

Propane vs Diesel

What are the differences?
Aside from the normal obvious differences between our Propane models and Diesel models, we get this question a lot.

The biggest difference between the Propane and Diesel versions is the way the heating system works.  Obviously, one is propane and the other is diesel, but how the fueling is controlled between the two, is where they differ.

Propane
The propane version has a static thermostat where you set the dial and walk away.  It's easy to use and there's not much to think about, but that's pretty much as far as it goes.  You can't setup custom time schedules or program the propane version.

Diesel
With the Diesel version, it has what we call a "Smart Thermostat" which has an actual programming logic controller and this lets the system control heating to be even more efficient, saving you money in fuel costs.  The diesel version also has data logging, which let's you take a look at how well the system is heating to know if your hot box is working at peak efficiency.  In addition, the smart thermostat will let you control heating requirements, allowing you to literally walk away and forget about it, or you can setup a time schedule and have the burner turn on or off at pre-determined times.  For example, set it to turn off over the weekend and automatically turn on for the week.

Conclusion
Better tools means a higher cost, so if you're looking at a budget system that's easier to use, the propane is probably the best bet.  But if you want to know exactly where your money is going, and you want a system with the highest heating efficiency, diesel is the way to go.

 

Standard & Upgrade Options

This unit comes standard with a fixed bed, propane fired burner and electric brakes but it also comes available with hydraulic brakes or a 52º dump bed as optional features. Mix and match between all four options to meet your budget or usage needs.

Capacity

The Big A 2-ton Asphalt Trailer Hauler holds up to 2 tons (4000 lbs) of milled or recycled hot asphalt and features a 58,000 BTU BTU propane burner for fast and efficient material heating and the key components are mounted above the frame and in a steel enclosure protecting them from the weather. Fuel is supplied by two included 30 lb propane cylinders conveniently located on the trailer's front allowing for easy cylinder change-out.

Heating & Storage

Heating is thermostatically controlled with 100% safety shut down and the burner system utilizes an electronic pilot fuel ignition system for maximum safety and increased fuel efficiency. Maintains HMA (Hot Mix Asphalt) for a period of 48 hours or reclaim bulk stored virgin mix overnight.

Top Input & Rear Output

A single top mounted cantilevered shock assist filling door makes it easy to open and close and only requires 15 pounds of pressure to operate while standing on the ground, and this trailer utilizes a single insulated 10″W x 16″H sliding shoveling door with track design. Asphalt is fed from a gravity feed slanted wall funnel design for easy discharge to shoveling door and making it easy to reach the material with a shovel.

Construction

The material box is triple welded construction made from 16 gauge for the skin and 12 gauge inner compartment making this asphalt trailer extremely durable and nearly inducible. Triple Wall Construction with high-efficiency insulation allows for excellent Heat Retention.
