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.
