Buyers Products introduces a redesigned polymer version of its DumperDogg dump inserts that turn pickup trucks into dump trucks.

The new polymer inserts, for 8-ft. truck beds, were redesigned with integrated side walls designed for a standard sheet of plywood to lie flat, the company says. The poly material provides a long service life and will never rust.

“The redesigned poly DumperDogg truck inserts improve on the original model while still making pickup trucks more versatile by giving users the ability to have a dump truck without having to purchase or rent a dump truck,” says Brian Smith, marketing manager at Buyers Products. “These inserts are ideal for landscapers and contractors who use pickup trucks for their businesses and need to haul and dump mulch or other material.”

Buyers Products says DumperDogg inserts also are available in 12-gauge steel and 304 stainless steel, for both 6- and 8-ft. truck beds. The steel and stainless steel DumperDogg inserts have a

2-cubic-yd. capacity in the 8-ft. truck insert and a 1.5-cubic-yd. capacity in the 6-ft. insert, the company says.

The company also says ¾ in. tailgate hinge pins provide support for the inserts’ payload capacity of 6,000 lbs. The 1.5-kilowatt motor for the hydraulic pump can be operated from inside the truck cab using the tethered control box for power-up and power-down. Dump angles on the inserts range from 0- to 40-degrees. Along with heavy-duty construction, the inserts feature a double-pivoting, removable tailgate, the company says.
