Stoughton Adds New Design Features to Grain Trailers

Stoughton Trailers introduced its newly designed Platinum Series of grain trailers. The trailers are available in 34-foot, 40-foot and 42-foot lengths in eight models to fit a variety of agriculture needs.

According to Stoughton, the trailers come with a 34-degree hopper slope for faster and better clean-outs. The two-stage door, constructed of corrosion-resistant materials, requires less torque needed by the operator to begin emptying the load. The trailers have a removable liner for easier service of components behind the liner panels.

On the front and rear, the new handrail has been moved further up and away from the trailer to allow easier platform access and improve safety, according to the Stoughton, Wis.-based company.

The lights on the upper rear header of the trailer now function as brake lights and turn signals. To provide greater durability, strength and stability, the new front wall is made of composite panels with stainless steel front corners as standard. The top divider rail is now 25% thicker to provide additional strength. Stoughton’s patented work area lights for unloading at night are also standard on the new trailers.
