The new-style endgate, which can also be installed on other makes of silage wagons, minimizes operator effort by opening automatically as the box is raised. A cable running under the wagon gear operates the latch as the box is raised, lifting the endgate vertically to a position above the box. In its fully raised position, the bottom of the endgate is level with the top of the box and completely clear of its contents. When the box is lowered, the gate returns automatically to a fully closed position, ready for another load.
The endgate is 84 in. tall and is available in both 7 and 8 ft. widths. An optional 40 in. grain door provides versatility for year round use, the manufacturer points out. The endgate is standard on Dohrman boxes with 84 in. sides (340 or 410 bu. capacity) and is available as an option on other sizes. Sells for right at $140.
