Wagon box dumps three ways
Manufactured in Germany, the box is mounted on a Knowles running gear, explains Dave Schmidt, company president. He foresees many potential uses for it, including hauling seed, dirt, gravel and grain.
A 3-stage hydraulic hoist raises the 3-way dumping trailer. Dumping direction is determined by the placement of two lock pins in catches underneath the box. For example, placing one pin in the front left corner catch and the second pin in the back left corner catch causes the box to pivot off the left side and dump to the left.
Box sides are hinged to fold down for dumping, or to lay flat to form a flatbed trailer.
Knowles has 8 and 10-ft. long boxes available for running gears and a box for one-ton trucks with duals. The wagon boxes have a 9,000 lb. capacity, are 84-in. wide and have a 11-ga. floor and 14-ga. sides. Tilt angle is 47? to the back and 50? to the side.
The 10-ft. box with running gear sells for right at $5,700.
