Wondering if anyone has heard anything good or bad about them, website is scarce on information and pictures.

Friend stopped in and talked to them. Sounds like they're only making them in farm trailer sizes for now. Won't be big cube trailers for over the road yet.

Yeah I don't think they started building big commodity hoppers yet.

At the Iowa State fair they told me a 43 72 96 would be here by the end of the year. The salesman I talked to said he had just finalized the 72 and it had to be to the customer by the end of the year. A 78 was a little behind that and they thought would eventually offer a 102 wide but that wasn’t a for sure thing.

Interesting, did they say anything about door size? I gotta say, while the timpte door is a pain when dealing with small openings at receivers I have yet to have a load of meal refuse to come out.

It was a commodity hopper with big doors I can’t remember the exact size now but the guy wanted it for hauling ddgs.
