Does anyone ever haul wheat midds in a dump trailer? Will they come out of the coal shut? How many ton were you able to get on?

Have never hauled midds in a dump but with 50x78x96 hopper struggle to get 24 ton as far as a coal chute,I would tend to think they probably would give you some issues.

I have never hauled midds in a dump myself. I have had guys in line with my unload midds. No problems. Comes out of the coal shout just fine.

It should come out of the coal shoot just fine once its started flowing. Saw a lot of guys do it already. Keep in mind midds are light your probably gonna have to stuff the wagon.

You can haul midds fine in a dump trailer so long as you have room. They come out fine out the coal chute...may have to work it some to get a good flow started but usually pretty good. Please note: do not let your floor be wet when you load otherwise it will lock up like concrete...NO FUN.

Something I do when I can...everyplace is different. Sometimes I open the big door and let fall off what's right against the gate....much easier to get a good flow started when nothing is packed against the door. Then lock your gate back up to use the coal chute. Just have to make sure you don't make a big mess or be ok will sweeping up some. But that little move will make it easier to start a good flow out the coal chute.

Good luck.
