Distribution trailer

Distribution trailer: General Information

A distribution trailer is a vehicle with technical facilities and that is pulled by a tractor. It is specifically used to load fodder. The equipment in the trailer shredders and mixes the content in the truck, obtaining the weight capacity of the contents while still ensuring that the weight is not overbearing of the contents and distributing to the various stations. Through the fact that the fodder is crushed and mixed , it is impossible for the cattle to select food or to eat only some components.

A hitch is used to mount the weight on the distribution trailer. This depends mainly on the tongue weight. This is the amount of weight the hitch can carry without additional help. The weight can be mounted on one or two levers depending on the type of trailer. Hence afterwards, check the weight the trailer can fully accommodate then gauge this with the weight distribution. For instance a trailer that can distribute 10000 pounds of weight can be matched up with an 800 tongue weight.
