Farmers engaged in keeping poultry or cattle often have to carry a variety of products. Trailers-grain carriers and other types of trailers are used for these purposes.

Features, types and brands of trailers Trailers and Semi-trailers

The most popular types of trailers include: grain carries, units carrying fertilizers and silage. Besides, there are many other devices used on livestock farms. For unloading tractor-drawn dumpers they are equipped with specialized hydraulic devices. Before you buy a new tractor trailer, you need to choose the type of its design.

According to this parameter, they are divided into:

  • Semi-trailers;
  • Standard tractor-drawn trailers;
  • Semi-mounted versions of tractor-drawn devices.

Semi-trailers distribute the weight of the cargo only to the rear part of the carriage and the tractor’s hydraulic pick-up hitch. The popularity and high sales of new and used semi-trailers and spare parts for them can be explained by the excellent maneuverability of  the machines, especially when they are moving in reverse. They do not only have a simple design, but are also 30% lighter than a full-fledged tractor-drawn equipment.

Under difficult road conditions it is better to use larger models of semi-trailers, because they are distinguished by their operational reliability, especially in comparison with two-axial tractor-drawn units.

Tractor-drawn equipment can have different purposes, the devices are divided into the following groups:

1. Universal. Here belong dumpers and devices with special truck flat bodies. Buying a new tractor trailer equipped with put-on sides, you can perform almost any transportation works with the materials of various density.

2. Specialized. They are used for transportation of goods of the same type. The cost of a trailer for agricultural machines is determined by the number of axes in the equipment. There are monoaxial, two-axis or three-axis devices. Trailers of semi-mounted type distribute the cargo weight simultaneously on the hydraulic pick-up hitch, back and front axes. There are no special requirements to the selection of tractor-drawn trailers, so when buying used agricultural trailers, only their condition and size should be taken into account.
