have you ever hauled any kind of feed in a hopper before? Be sure you are in good enough physical shape that you can handle some shoveling sweeping and climbing. also it gets extremely dusty good idea to have a respirator mask like car painters use. be sure your tarps are in real good condition any moisture and its hell trying to get it unloaded. its nice to have air vibrators installed on the hoppers to make it flow out better.

I agree vibrators installed on your hoppers are a big help. An electric tarp roller could help also.
I think that they even make a electric hopper door opener that opens the hopper doors for you.
