Air Scoop For Trucks
After Missouri Farmer Jim Knowles of Anabel lost a hog from lack of air while in transit, he equipped his grain bed with a home-made air scoop.
"It goes on or comes off in seconds," says Knowles. "We feel it works better and is a lot less trouble than the knock-out air holes on the truck box."
The scoop fits across the top of the front of the truck grain box, and is supported by "legs" that slide into the box's existing side extension holes. The scoop is made from 1/8-in.sheet metal. Knowles painted it red to match the truck box.
"In the scoop position it puts a lot of air down on the hogs, keeping them cool even on a hot day," says Knowles. "When hauling grain, you reverse the scoop and it becomes a wind deflector." He notes that the same type of scoop could be made for pickups.
