Looking to buy a walking floor trailer for some local ground hay hauling. Was wondering what else I could haul with it? I know dairys use cotton seed hulls, is this something to pursue? Thanks REPLY

Not sure what would be available in your area but there are many uses in a floor. Can haul almost any kind of feed, mulch, and seed corn just to name a few. If trailer set up right up can haul palletized loads. I have a floor and use it 2 months a year and it more than pays for itself. Only negative I can think of is that they are pretty heavy for some products but if most people request a floor then they are usually willing to pay a little more. Hope i was able to help. REPLY

Adam,
I am in the quad city area in Illinois, any ideas where to look to put my walking floor to work. I did do seed corn this year now looking for something else. Is there a special tarp for the nose when hauling like DDG for example.

Most people use a "drag tarp" to help clean out. If you dont use one you will be doing a lot of sweeping to get trailer cleaned out. I don't run my floor much besides seed. Think a lot of guys also use floors for green beans also but i have not personally done that. I have done some running for Midwest Ag out of Ohio. Seemed like good people but did a lot of sitting but always paid fairly quick. Think Zeeland does some freight for floors also and I'm sure there are several more out there that I don't know about or am forgetting about REPLY
