What is a self-loading trailer?
Simply called "Self-loading wagons" by all professionals in the agricultural community, the self-loading wagon is essential equipment for haymaking activities. It’s when harvest time arrives and forage harvesting is needed that owning a loader comes in handy. Thus, the main function of a self-loading trailer is its ability to easily and quickly harvest the grass that will be used to feed the animals or rather stored as silage. Sometimes there is a mower that can be attached to the trailer to merge mowing and collection activities. This generates a very significant time saving. Self-loading wagons can also be used as a simple “container” as to accompany a forage harvester. In this case, the forage harvester is responsible for harvesting the forage which is blown directly into the self-loading wagon.
What is a self-loading trailer made of?
A self-loading trailer is made up of several parts: drawbar, collecting unit, cutting system and a hydraulic circuit. The self-loading trailer is also equipped with a pick-up for collecting grass and a moving floor that allows it to be unloaded. The moving floor is a very useful option since it allows very fast unloading. The moving floors are driven hydraulically. The biggest advantage of owning a self-loading wagon is that it can be separated from the forage harvester, which saves time and money.
