Aluminum Grain Hopper Trailers

Jet Aluminum Grain Hopper Trailers lead the category with their patented Grain Door Design, Rounded Hopper Bottom and Rounded Slopes. They’re considered the easiest industry trailer to unload, with no 90° corners for product to hang-up. Even traditionally sticky products, such as DDGs and Bean Meal, clean out easily with out requiring a vibrator or knock rails to start material flow. Jet’s patented Easy Open Grain Door with Ramp and Bevel Design means easy grain hopper unloading at the bin site or elevator. In fact, it’s the only grain trailer available that uses the weight of the load to aid in opening the hopper door. Side Chute are also available that allow further flexibility for unloading into an auger. Jet Aluminum Grain Trailers are lighter and allow for more bushels to haul but still durable enough for field use, while the quality ensures high resale value.

Make sure to view the videos below to see how the patented ramp & bevel grain door works and just how easy it is to open!

LED Lights & Wire Harness

Corrosion Resistant Paint System

Patented ramp and bevel design. When the door closes, it rests on a ramp above the rollers. When you unlock the door, gravity becomes friendly and the weight of the grain helps open the door. The door has a beveled edge to give the grain a surface to push against while opening. Door Rollers are a synthetic nylon that improves wear resistance and are low maintenance.

The rounded design of the grain hopper acts like a funnel when the grain door is opened. This patented feature allows for a easier flow of material out of the hopper, especially high moisture materials including Dry Distillers Grain (DDGs) and Bean Meal that are known for slow and sticky unloading.

The slope sheets are suspended from the top rail and are not fastened to the exterior side wall of the trailer. This patented feature allows the hopper and slopes to move freely with minimal stress on the exterior sidewall of the trailer.

Standard Wall Height is 70”. Extended Wall height of 82” is optional. 82" Walls Shown Above

Easily open your tarp without the manual labor! Electric tarps can be controlled from the cab, the front of the trailer or on a remote control.

Air Ride suspensions are popular on aluminum grain trailers. They ride better than spring when the trailer is empty. Lift Axles are either regulated or non regulated with control box and can be installed on any axle, available only on air ride suspensions. Common Wheel/Tire options are 11R24.5 Radial Tires or Wide Base Single Tires. Re-capped tires are also available.

Windows allow a safe and easy visual of the grain level inside each hopper. Can be installed on the driver, passenger, or both sides of the trailer.

Tarp vents allow for unloading of grain in the rain or snow without having to open the tarp to replace the grain with air and damaging the trailer.

Installed in a weather resistant enclosure on the road side of the trailer by the front axle. Gauge reads pressure from the airbags. Filled with shock absorbing liquid to protect the gauge from vibration. Manual dump valve quickly releases the air from the air bags on the suspension.

Regulates correct and equal tire pressure across all tires. One system controls two axles.

Electric motors can be added to a grain door, and controller from the side of the trailer or with a remote.

Allows for a hookup of a dolly and a second trailer. Includes air lines and seven way electrical hookups for the trailer.

Doubles requires a pintle hitch on the lead trailer and a dolly on the second trailer.

Dollies are available in spring or air ride suspensions and various tongue lengths.

Installed above the tires to reduce the water spray out the side of the trailer during wet road conditions.

Side chute allow for unloading to the side of the trailer in an auger or a pit.

Aluminum catwalks are available on both the front and the rear of the trailer. Catwalk cannot be added to a trailer with an electric tarp for safety reasons.

Pneumatic vibrator mounted to each grain hopper helps start the flow of stubborn material.

Multiple configurations to increase the trailer visibility in the dark. Please contact your sales rep about options.

White is standard, other stocking colors are black, red, slate gray and yellow, or custom matching is possible for an upcharge.

Why Buy Jet

How Jet Compares to the Competition

A long history of industry firsts:
  • First to use self-cleaning rollers on grain doors instead of door slides
  • First to offer shorter length grain trailers
  • First to use sight windows in sidewall of trailer
  • First to solve the problem of products sticking in the hoppers with Jet’s patented Rounded Hoppers and Rounded Slopes
Structurally enhanced and put to the test:

Jet trailers are built with state-of-the-art materials, and Jet’s patented exemplary designs. The #1 choice for duarbility, Jet load tests their 22 ft. trailers with 66,000 lbs. of rock (equivalant to 1,179 bushels of corn), and their 42 ft. trailers with 120,000 lbs. of rock (equivalant to 2,143 bushels of corn). We then test them on a grueling, twisting course consisting of 4 inch chatter bumps set 3 feet apart, and frozen v-ripped ground. Put that kind of confidence to work for you, and you’ll soon find that Jet trailers are engineered like no other.
