Re: Grain Trailer Help

Looks like a pretty nice trailer you bought yourself, Matt!

What's your empty weight with that? Is it air-ride?

Re: Grain Trailer Help

Thanks Christian. I believe that the weight is roughly around 11500 lbs empty. It is a spring suspension. Sticker on the side says its a Hutchens suspension. Our tandem axle grain truck is air and we are not very happy with its performance so Im kinda glad the trailer is spring.

Re: Grain Trailer Help

Air ride trailers and tractors are the cats meow for ride quality and for loading legal wieghts, I agree air ride grain trucks are terrible IMO to much swaying when loaded.I know of a couple that have been rolled because of it(could just be driver) but after driving one I wouldn't want one.After using air ride trucks and trailers for the last 5 years I wouldn't go back to springs.

Re: Grain Trailer Help

On our roads in Sask a spring ride trailer will only last half as long as air ride. When looking at trailers as soon as I see it has springs I walk away.(one exception is tanker trailers driving a air ride tanker feel like you in a boat) We have a air ride Freightliner tandem and its not to bad to drive I was worried when we got it but it worked fine last harvest. You do have to use your head when driving and slow down more and don't turn too sharp in a low corner.
