How many tons can you load on a regular hopper? Anyone?

How many cubic yards of capacity do you have? Is the receiver going to unload the trailer for you? Cottonseed does not flow out of a hopper without some real work. It will take more than a vibrator and mallet.

I have an 80 yard belt trailer and it's completely full with 23+/- tons. The same trailer has plenty of space with DDG and even a little room for more with soy hulls, just to give you an idea.

Has to be at least a 78 tall by 102 wide with regular doors to get 25 ton on. It also depends on if the cottonseed is light.

I've gotten 27 ton on before but it was mounded up good and had to walk it down alot to get tarp over. 40 long 102 wide 84 tall with big doors is my trailer setup.
