Gooseneck Grain HaulerZearing, Iowa, farmer Jerry Britten built a gooseneck trailer to pull behind his pickup that has an interchangeable gravity box and flatbed trailer bed.
The gooseneck, which he built out of heavy I-beam, channel iron and heavy-walled steel tubing, lets him haul grain home fast from distant fields using his pickup. The tandem axle easily handles the 350 bu. gravity box.
He lifts the box onto the trailer frame with a large end-loader tractor. Four channel-iron brackets secure the box to the trailer frame. When harvest is over, he removes the wagon and installs a flatbed for hauling hog equipment and machinery.
