Re: Allmost fully loaden
What do these wagons weigh when loaded? How do you pull them
up hill and stop them when loaded, also it looks like they
would be heavy on tonge. Here in South Missouri we use
wagons (Running Gears) to haul on and have trouble pulling
them as well as stopping them with heavy loads and they
don't look nearly as heavy as these trailers.

That depends on the dry matter content of the silage, but
normally varies between 20 and 25 (European) tons.
The weight on tong is needed to get sufficient traction on
our sandy soils.
In order to handle these large wagons safely they're equiped
with hydraulic brakes on all six wheeles.
With "pulling up hill" I guess you mean pulling up the
clamp?? Well, actually we don't or in some cases just a
little. The wagons are backed towards the clamp and unload
their cargo just in front of it. A wheelloader is used to
move the maize silage up the clamp and spread it in thin
Take a look at the pictures below.

It's a "PONTHIEUX" wagon,isn't? Are there several wagons
like this one in Holland ? or, maybe that photo has been
taken in France ?

telling bullshits, otherwise I will hide myself far away
from France quickly!!!
