It all depends on if they are really light or not. I have a 84X102X43 and I still have room with 51,000 lbs loaded. It also depends on if you have ag hoppers or the big doors. If you have the big doors I would say you should be able too.

I have a 43x84x96.with big commodity doors and generally get 26 to28 tons depending on where we load.

Ok... good enough. I do have the 6” wider doors then what’s considered standard... least that’s what the salesman told me and I don’t believe I have ag hoppers... didn’t really want that. Might be good for hauling out of the field but I’m not doing much of that... thanks for info

your trailer is on the smaller side of things but you should be able to do that. you may need to shake load to tarp

I had the same size trailer before 43x78x102 and I used to dump my air bags on my trailer and never had a problem getting 50,000lbs. Good luck

All depends where you're loading out of too. Where do you plan to load out of or just asking in general?

My biggest question would be if they are loose midds or midds pellets. We run the same trailer you have with supper hoppers and with loose we average 23/ton with pellets getting a big load is not a problem.

Yes you should be wright at 25 to 26 tons on a 43/102/78 super hopper that?s what we get every load out of Saginaw tx

I load 43 x 96x 78...23 tons without shacking load...u got 102 wide u get 25 tons even if mids r light...just load as high as possible without spilling..almost to edges and u b good...just a tip have air hose with a blow in or shovel incase mids compact over long haul.

FYI just because everyone thinks you should be able to load 25 ton doesn't mean you can always. I have seen midds vary in weight from 18lbs per bushel to 25 lbs per bushel. I personally hauled a load at 18 lbs one time and i have a 102102 43 super cube and i only managed to stuff 26 ton in the wagon but in all my years that was the worst i ever saw midds for being that light.
