Stoughton Trailers has announced its newly designed Platinum Series Grain Trailer, available in eight different models to fit a variety of agriculture needs.
The Platinum Series Grain Trailer was designed for durability and built using tested and proven components, according to Stoughton. It is available in 34-, 40-, and 42-foot lengths.
All Platinum Series Grain Trailers come standard with a 34-degree hopper slope for faster and better cleanouts. The “easy-opening” Platinum Plus two-stage door is constructed of corrosion resistant materials and reduces the amount of torque needed by the operator to begin emptying the load. Additionally, the liner is now removable to provide access to trailer components behind the liner panels.
On the front and rear, 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, the Platinum Series trailer’s new front wall is made of composite panels with stainless steel front corners as standard. The top divider rail is now 25% thicker to provide additional strength.
Standard on all Platinum Series, 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.
Stoughton engineers focused on lighting solutions for better visibility and safety on the Platinum Series. The lights on the upper rear header of the trailer now function as brake lights and turn signals.
Work area lights 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.
All Platinum Series grain trailers come standard with two rows of seven mini LED lights on 40- and 42-foot trailer models. The lights are grommet mounted, designed for easy replacement, and carry a lifetime warranty.
