    Werner has been running hoppers for a couple years now. The started about the time we got out of hoppers. We heard the rumor that they were getting them probably 6 mos before that. But with the David City plant close to us, we figured there was some truth to the rumor when we heard it.:rolleyes:

    The only calls I have been getting are for walking floors. Usually not enough calls for me to justify buying one though.

    My week so far looks like this: hook up to live floor run a few loads. Hook up to hopper move corn. Hook up to lowboy move equipment then hook up to a bullrack and run that till dark.


    I liked when I was hooked to my live floor 24/7

    He's out of trucking. Pulling hoppers isn't bad just the rates right now. I stick to grain but feed products can be a pain.
