Stoughton aluminum grain trailers

What are the good and the bad things about Stoughton trailers. I am looking at a 09 40ftr with ag hoppers air ride, just don't know much about them. They look really close to a timpte or wilson. thanks

Re: Stoughton aluminum grain trailers

We have one that we bought brand new in the fall of 08. I like the fact that this trailer is pretty much as loaded as you can get, in standard form. It has all led lights, 2 rows of 5 side clearance lights, all aluminum rims, aluminum subframe. The only downfall so far has been on the front of the trailer in the supports for the front of the hopper. Make sure that you're trailer has a cross brace on the bottom of the sheeting at the top of the hopper, where it goes from the angle, then flattens out, clear at the front of the trailer. Ours didn't originally, and there were a few issues that were corrected under warranty. Also check around the landing gear, as they had all the connections welded around this area. These welds started to break out. Again warranty fixed them. They went back in with large gussets and riveted them in, so there would be a little flex. Other than that, we like the trailer. It's light weight, and the traps are super easy to open.

Re: Stoughton aluminum grain trailers

We rented one for harvest in 2008 and we weren't too impressed it only hauled about 170000 bushel and when we took it back it already had some rivets popped out on the inside of the hopper. We were loading right at 54000lb net so its not like it was overloaded or anything. heck we have a 92 Wilson pacesetter with spring ride and load 60000+ net sometimes and haven't popped a rivet yet. Just seems hard to beat a Wilson. Just my opinion though
