Bulk Blower Trucks For Sale

Bulk blowing trucks and trailers feature the equipment required to transfer large quantities of various substances, with animal feed being the most common dry payload handled by this type of vehicle. The blowing mechanism itself is often powered by a separate motor from the main unit in the cab, although this is not always the case, so you should establish the exact configuration used before you buy one second-hand.

The capacity of the trailer will be affected by the presence of this secondary engine, so this will have to be considered and balanced against the convenience of having dedicated power for the blower functionality.

For a bulk blowing trailer, another of the significant features will be the trailer tipping mechanism, which allows it to be angled appropriately so that the load within can be dispensed with ease and with maximum efficiency. Any system of this kind will be subjected to the rigours and strains of regular use, and so used trucks need to be checked to see what state the hydraulics are in. Any indication that leaks are occurring, that seals are worn down or that the operation is jerky could be a sign of something amiss or an indication that costly repairs may be required in the near future.

Given that the tipper system not only has to handle the weight of the trailer itself, but also a full load, it's important to look out for potential problems when buying a used bulk blowing trailer.

Other areas to turn your eye to when buying a used bulk blowing trailer truck include the tractor unit, if one is included in the deal, as well as the valves and other gauges attached to the trailer’s blowing system. Optional extras on some models include alloy wheels, which are lightweight and sturdy but can show signs of heavy use. This needs to be taken into account when negotiating on price. There may even be a digital means of providing an instant look at the weight of the load on board, which is convenient and potentially a valuable asset in any used vehicle of this kind.

The trailer will often allow for overhead loading, and they often contain more than one compartment, which helps to keep the load effectively separated and safely stored during transit. This even means that different types of material can be stored within without mixing them. Although made from alloy or steel, the trailer’s top can be lighter and more flexible so that it can easily and quickly be removed. This could be damaged over time, so ensure that there are no weak spots or obvious holes that might need to be patched up to prevent inclement weather conditions from spoiling the load beneath.

Aside from the specialist parts and features of bulk blowing trailes, using some common sense when checking over the more generic components is similarly sensible. Looking for damage to the axles and undercarriage is important, as is considering the state of the tyres, suspension and steering.
