Will dry ddgs supposed to be 6-8% moisture flow out of an ag hopper trailer?

Probably not if loaded on a hot muggy day and they are hot out of the plant.

As long as they have a great air compressor and long hose with a good probe to blow it out then it's good to go

you will want a good viberator on that hopper, and the humidity and time in trailer makes differance, also depending on where you get DDG they might be adding corn syrup back to it what they can't sell for in feeds which humidity plays a bigger role

How many ton would an ag hopper hold?

I had a 72"x96" and would get 25to 29 ton on it depending on where I loaded.

Ag hoppers and DDG is a real good combination. The pitch of the slope and the smaller doors can cause issues along with weather conditions and the product itself. I have loads slide right out and I have had a load that took 5 1/2 hours to unload while having to push product from the top of the load. Also, I have noticed that I have more issues with Poet DDG than others. I have 4ft doors and vibrators and DDG loaded hot will tend to hang up.
