Trinity Trailer Manufacturing, Inc., based in Boise, Idaho, introduces a new generation of lightweight Eagle Bridge Stainless Steel potato beds. The beds are available in 20-foot through 30-foot lengths with 25-inch or 31-inch belt widths to handle potatoes, sugarbeets or grains. The bed is also available in carbon steel.
The new generation features the Trinity Trailer chain-and-flap unloading system that has made Trinity’s trailers so popular. This unload system greatly reduces belt slippage in muddy or sloppy conditions and unloads with minimal bruising. The new gear pump and 7.5-hp electric motor generates extremely fast unload speeds (also available with PTO).
The new side door has eliminated latches, allowing the doors to open and shut smoothly without jamming. The inside shelf of the side door has been eliminated so there is no place for debris to collect, causing the door not to close. Trinity’s high-capacity beds are also remarkably light. Twenty-foot beds, depending on how they are equipped, will typically weigh less than 4,500 lbs.
