Stoughton Trailers introduces its newly designed Platinum Series Grain Trailer.
Built using proven components, thorough testing and the same durability and value fleets have come to expect from Stoughton, the company says the Platinum Series grain trailers are are available in 34-, 40- and 42-ft. lengths in eight models to fit a variety of unique agriculture needs.
Stoughton says all Platinum Series grain trailers come standard with a 34º hopper slope for faster and better cleanouts. The “easy-opening” Platinum Plus 2-stage door, constructed of corrosion resistant materials, significantly decreases the amount of torque needed by the operator to begin emptying the load. In addition, the liner is now removable, enabling easy removal to service the trailer components behind the liner panels, the company says.
On the front and rear, Stoughton says the new handrail has been moved further up and away from the trailer to allow easier platform access and improve safety.
To provide greater durability, strength and stability, Platinum Series new front wall is made of composite panels with stainless steel front corners as standard. The top divider rail is now 25 percent thicker to provide additional strength. Standard on all Platinum Series, Stoughton says the aluminum subframe grain trailers have hot dipped galvanized steel supports which connect the subframe to the cross members. In combination with the aluminum subframe, this offers a more durable and corrosion resistant solution. The front upper rail and top shelf have been redesigned to improve strength.
Finally, from rear lighting to work area lights, Stoughton engineers have incorporated superior lighting solutions for better visibility and safety on the newly design Platinum Series. The lights on the upper rear header of the trailer now function as brake lights and turn signals, the company says.
The patented work area lights also are standard, offering a superior solution when unloading at night. Each hopper/trap is equipped with 3 mini LED lights, integrated into the lower trap frame to greatly reduce the chance of being damaged. The crank area is equipped with 1 mini LED light, the company says. All Platinum Series grain trailers come standard with two rows of 7 mini LED lights on 40- and 42-ft. trailer models. Stoughton says the lights are grommet mounted, easy to replace and carry a lifetime warranty.
The newly designed Stoughton Platinum Series grain trailers are available now.
