Do they come out of hopper bottom and can you get enough weight on

Always flat rate beet pulp shreds. It'll come out fine in a hopper but you'll never come close to getting weight. Last time I hauled the stuff I cubed out a 43x96x78 hopper and got 16 tons I think.

Not likely to get enough weight on. I have watched guys work their ass off to get them out. Someone described them to me once as a load of fish hooks. It would depend on where you load them and whether they are screened.

They don't flow well out of a hopper and they are very light. They look like finely ground mulch and will weigh similar to loose soy hulls.

With my old 65 cubic yard belt trailer I could get about 16 tons of beet shreds. The 80 yard belt trailer I have now should get 20-21 tons heaped. Beet shreds are best kept on large capacity belt or walking floor trailers.
