Ok well asking the people that know. I am offered a load of Bone Meal will it flow out of my hopper without vibrators??? Also will the trailer need a washout after I haul it before I go back to hauling Organics???

It usually comes out pretty good, I never had to use a vibrator on any load I hauled. You will need a washout no matter what you are hauling next. It is required by law that it has to be washed out if this is beef meat and bone meal. There will be paper work with the load when usually pick it up explaining about having to be washed out after uloading the meal. Sometimes you won't be able to haul certain loads until you haul 2 or 3 different loads. If you have ag hoppers I don't know how it comes out of the trailer, always had bigger doors. Hope this helps.

Thank you Dale for the Information. Someone else hauled the load but I was interested in it since I am near a place that has them every now an then. I just wanted an idea of what I would be getting myself into...
