central mn
Wondering how many bushels I could haul in a 34 ft hopper bottom, it has ag hoppers. Would be great for getting around, truck would have 160 inch wheel base so in minnnesota what could I legally haul? How many bushels would it haul if didn't have to worry bout weight? thanks

Not a 34 but have a 30 foot steel dakota. I know this, i can make the 40+ foot guys look like they are pulling a train. I can fit 800 bushels of soybeans maybe, and 850 bushels of corn if its 58-59 lb corn. As for weight, try this http://www.thetruckersplace.com/BridgeFormula.aspx
just plug in your numbers.

My cousin has a 34' Jet behind a loooong bright yellow 379 Pete. The tractor looks longer than the trailer. He says 1000 bu is all the corn it will haul. Missouri bridge laws are rediculous so its way over loaded. 950 bu for beans.

I had a Jet 34 ft ag hopper trailer. I'm sure I remember having 1040 bu on. Felt like eating the scale ticket. Did not plan on getting that much on it. Really don't think it was plumb full. At 160", I'm thinking you may get 880 bu corn on legally, depending on tw.

my 38'6 dakota with 172" WB truck is legal to 957bu corn. I'd say 900ish legal being 4ft shorter?

We had a 34' Jet and I think with our big block day cab 875 corn was about it legally depending on fuel. Been a while but I'm sure we could could not haul 900 legally.

I have a 34' steel Jet trailer with Ag hoppers. I pull it with a Freightliner sleeper. I can legally haul 945-950 bu of corn. It will hold over 1000 bu if not concerned about weight.
