Hendrickson has begun production of the Boxed Dump Valve, another design for installation on Vantraax and all K-2 trailer slider boxes. This unit provides a manual dump control fitted in a protective enclosure to shield the valve from the elements and road debris. The control features a ball valve, brass body, and chrome-plated brass ball, which rides in Teflon seals.
This unit is predrilled with holes to bolt directly to the Quik-Draw panel on the driver side of the K-2 slider. A top flange on the mounting panel also allows the unit to be mounted by bolting or welding below any trailer floor crossmembers or other structural members.
A rubber strap keeps the door firmly closed when in the latched position. It has a large T-handle for opening and locking, and the mounting panel has zinc plating and a stainless steel hinge. For full details, contact Hendrickson, 800 S Frontage Rd, Woodridge IL 60517-4904.
