I'm impressed by the equipment and the electronics. Looks like you've had a lot of rain up there. Wish some of that would move south! I don't think I've seen anything that green in a LONG time!
Cool pics. I imagine that clean up work is a good break from the precise work of spraying and tending to the corn.

Hi there,

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

Our fleet for this fall
