Finally picked up a second grain trailer to further replace tractors and wagons for hauling wet grain off the fields. The practice is very dangerous and trucks are a much better fit for us with our land base sprawling over about 50km.
The new to us trailer is a 40/43 quad axle end dump with 62" sidewalls. We had three grain doors added to the rear for fast unloading and cleanout, as well as a man door to the front of the trailer to easily access the box for sweeping. This trailer has performed extremely well during soybean harvest and I look forward to how it will change corn harvest for us. 1.5 people were able to harvest soybeans, this year, where in the past 4 or 5 were needed. Talk about savings!
Headed out on the 401 west bound for the 250km trip
All aluminum rims, all air ride, and an air tailgate
They make a nice pair
Lazy mans door
Aired up and ready to go
over 2000lbs difference between the two trailers. Aluminum makes a big difference
Dealership told the truth, no leaks
First load a great success
