For me personally, I don't haul over 500 miles only because I don't have the energy or patience to keep reminding brokers they're not going to cover bounce miles or washout. So I stay with lds don't need to be washout.

Hoppers are best used for dry bulk products like grain, dry granular fertilizer, pelletized feed and pelletized manure. Must have a pit or auger to efficiently unload.

Dump trailers can haul nearly any dry bulk item including large rock. Can unload anywhere with a flat surface. If unloading in a building, the building must be tall enough to accommodate the highest point of the dump.

Belt trailers can haul nearly any dry bulk item except large rock. Can unload anywhere including slightly uneven surfaces.

Anything that will come out the bottom and some things that won’t, without a lot of effort.

Rendering meals (meat and bone, feather), potatoes and potatoe flower, small aggregate, dry pelletized fertilizers, wheat mill discard (wheat middlings), onions, apples, grain seeds, feed additives (calciums, magnesiums), salt, bio carbonates and bentonites, dried distiller grains, soybean crush bi products, peanuts, cotton seeds. These are hopper loads that i know of or have hauled, and ALL must be in the proper form, and even when in proper form what always goes on easy, may not always come out the bottom easy, ever...........
