Re: Bushels a trailer load?
We have a 41' Wilson Hopper, and a 42' Timpte Hopper, and a 34' Dump Trailer. I can usually get 1,100-1,200 bushels on the Wilson, and 1,200-1,300 bushels on the Timpte. The Dump trailer will hold about 1,000 bushels. These trucks will gross out at around 100,000 lbs. This is far from legal. We only haul like this out of the field. Legal is more like 800-900 bushels, or 80,000 lbs. we usually like to stay under 85,000 lbs when hauling to the mill out of the tanks.
