2018 Burton Dump Truck
So I've had a '15 Landlord 163 for a number of years now as my go to freeride board of choice. I sold the LL a few months ago as I had my eye on the '18 Burton Dump Truck which is basically the superseded replacement of the LL. Read and watched all the reviews I could find on the DT that spoke positive about its performance but because of the early days out from release, none were very comprehensive at all in details. Anyway, I ended up grabbing a 163. Emailed Burton Au' and there were only 7 coming into Australia in 163. Was able to grab one for a great price when it only just landed a few days earlier in the stores. Absolutely Stoked.

It came delivered boxed up and still wrapped in plastic. Well this board looks so much better in the flesh than in the pics. The blunt shovel nose and tail are a different outline to the LL sharper bullet nose and tail style. It's still basically very similar in the size and profile being a tapered and directional S rocker but looks a lot more beefier than the the LL. Big thumbs up...., this is a sic' looking ride.

So my first day on this board was spent in Furano, Japan. Kitted up this ride with '18 Genesis EST and Burton Imperials. Being in my healthy mid 50's, 191cm/95kg kitted up, with 36 years riding experience in the snow my ability is confidently at the advanced level.

Well from the 1st turn I made on this board I felt it instantly gelling and blowing me away. I waxed and rotor brushed her up prior with Hertal FC739 (never have enough speed) and had it setup at 15mm to the rear of reference on the front and 20mm back from reference in the rear. What I've noticed straight away with the DT is that you can set down some super heavy high speed carves on the piste with a mind blowing degree of confidence and certainty. This board is moderately stiff, around a 7 with Burton's 45 degree carbon highlight weave. I was worried that at the speed I was clocking in at I might punch the edge out but the DT did not give an inch. It was almost like, you could say, Custom X'ish. I was dropping down some really hard lines at maximum speed and this board is so much faster than a LL.

So the DT has left me so damn impressed with its edge hold ability at speed on the groomed piste...., but this is not what the DT is really all about. It's a board made for freeriding.

So freeriding we went. Venturing into a bit of back country hitting some black level knee deep powder runs. Lucky for me I'm in Japan and there is absolutely no shortage of any of that here. Traveled to Kamui after around a 30cm dump and It did not let me down here either. Was able to set down some great carves in knee deep powder with utter confidence. The blunt nose kept well on top and the tail was so light and surfy. You can so easily throw the tail of the DT around 180 degrees side to side and slash your way through powdery tree runs with complete ease. Got buried numerous times in heaps of powder showers exploding through glorious untouched fresh runs. This board has absolutely no short comings.

So from 2 weeks of solid riding on the Burton DT it has truly impressed me as a next level step up freeride/powder board. It would not be wrong for me to say that this is the best board I've ever owned......, It is the best board I've ever owned.

Grab this board if you can, it's that damn good.

An easy 5 stars ?????

I have been finding mixed reviews for the DT but for the most part the reviews I have read seem to say this is a freeride board but I have also read it's a powder board. Would it be fair to say it can handle groomers and powder? I live in MN and will rid groomers here but want something I can take everywhere. I have a 2016 Burton Custom 163 camber now but I need a bigger board because I'm 6'3 and 275 with size 11-12 boot and when I bought my board I did not consider my weight . Would this board be a good fit if I get a bigger or wider size also considering I'm a free rider who likes a directional board? Just looking for opinions. Thanks I advance.

BEST ANSWER: Hi Brad. Thanks for reaching out. The DT is a great big mountain board that tackles groomers with ease because of the direction camber profile, floats in pow and chops chunder because of the large scooping nose and 15mm taper. It's a great board for big mountain riding. The best option for a DT size would be the 163cm - it has a suggested weight range of 180-260 lbs, and a 25.8cm waist width.

Another board you should consider is the 162cm Wide/ 168cm Burton Flight Attendant. The FA is very similar to the DT, but the FA's 26.4cm/ 26cm waist width will be much better to lay down deep carves both in MN and anywhere else you go. Check it out here:
