Overview of Company and Position

Here at Schwend we pride ourselves on being a family owned and operated company. Charles and Judy Schwend started our company in 1976. Mr. Charles and Mrs. Judy are now retired, but if you ever stop by or terminal in Dade City are you likely to see them around the office. Jeff (Judy and Charles son) took over the company after his parents retired and is now our company President and fearless leader! Over the last 45 years we have built a strong customer base in the Southeast, hauling many types of agricultural products. We have grown some since 1976 and we now have a total of 4 terminals! Terminals are in Dade City FL, Tampa FL, Jasper TN, and Elko GA.

Equipment Overview


3 or 4 cones pushed together. Each cone has a manhole on top, this is where the product is loaded. Drivers do have open and close the top lids. Along the entire bottom length of the trailer runs the product, at the back of the trailer the product line opens, and this is where you attach the hoses. One end of the hose is attached to the product line and the other end of the hose is what you would hook up to the silo, drop in the pit of water , or into a pit in the ground; you would then use air pressure to blow the product off of the trailer. You need be able to lift up to 75 lbs.

Our tanks range from 1000 to 1600 cubic feet capacity
Featuring :
• 8"product valves to allow for a variety of products
• 4" product lines and a variety of fittings and adapters to meet most needs
• Trailers carry a minimum of 30 feet of 4" hose
• Gravity tees to enable bottom-dropping of loads
• Vibrators for aeration of product

While our pneumatics do have bottom drop tees, we blow off most of the loads we haul on our pneumatic tanks.
