Wheat midds

96” wide, 72” sides, 43’ with ag hoppers. How much weight can you get on ballpark? If anyone has an idea I would appreciate it or if anyone wants to insult me for asking the question I would be entertained by it. I’ve asked a couple of guys but nobody with my particular trailer size. Thanks

Maybe 20-21 ton???

I have 43x102x84 and it is full to get 24-25 ton.

I agree with Ryan, 20-21 ton. We have one 50x96x72 ag hoppers and 23 ton of midds with that is a good day. Our 50? isn?t much more volume than your 43?.

35,000? Not enough to pay!

Your ag hoppers take up a lot of your volume. We run 78" x 102' x 43' super cube trailers ade we can get 53-54,000 on. We have an O/O that has 78' x 96' x 43' ag hoppers and they get around 20-22 ton.

If your lucky maybe 20 ton. depends on bushel weight of midds. and hopefully your not in North East pa to extract a load that isn't made yet today.

That trailer size will get you about 21-22- ton. That partially depends on how much flour is mixed in with the MIDDS.

Yes I’ve noticed that. This trailer doesn’t seem to have much more volume than one I used to pull as a rental with shorter sides but commodity hoppers. I generally haven’t found a need for volume in my activities but this year I’ve had a few times it would have been nice. With your super cubes can you scale 53-54,000 at 80? I’ve never spec’d one like that to know what they would weigh

Thanks again for the input. I thought maybe 19-20 tons so I passed as dropping 6 or 7 tons made the rate a lot less fun.

I have a 43 ft 102 wide 102 high super cube . I can only haul 51,000 at 80,000 gross . 80% of my work is local permit loads of 95,000 and it works fine.

26-27/ton depending on which truck, how much fuel and also alot depends on how much flour is in the midds.

Depends on the truck. We have some O/O with light tractors and they can scale 53-54,000. The Timpte Super Cubes we pull avereage around 8,600 pounds with aluminum subs, plates and pins.
