Forage Box Cover
Wisconsin farmer John Murphy, of Lena, installed a hinged cover on his forage wagons to keep the beaters from throwing forage on the ground when unloading and to keep forage from blowing out of the wagon during transport.
The plywood cover, consisting of a 2-ft. deep, and 1-ft. deep section hinged together, is mounted on a shaft installed across the top of the box. By turning the shaft by hand, using a cable connected to a chain on a sprocket system, Murphy can move the cover out of the way on top of the wagon before filling the box and easily lower it once the wagon is full. Splitting the cover into two hinged section makes it easier to hand-crank it onto the top of the wagon, Murphy notes.
Plans for making your own forage box cover sell for $12.
