PARMA® Forage Equipment
The reintroduction of a manure spreader box to the Parma line of equipment in 1999, propelled Parma Company to expand into the forage truck mounted box and the semi-tractor pulled trailer. Since 2000 Parma Company has been building one of the toughest forage and commodity hauling units available. Truck mounted boxes range from 16 to 24 feet and trailer sizes are 30 to 40 foot.
Parma Forage boxes and trailers are designed with all welded, heavy-duty construction using 14ga and 12ga corrugated walls and solid welded 10ga floor plate. The flat bottom floors eliminate bridging of the material no matter the consistency. The double apron floor chain is made with heavy-duty TY78 “big barrel” riveted chain and welded 2 inch channel slats for years of worry free unloading.
Some of the standard features of the Parma Forage boxes and trailers are an industry-largest 2 3/8” drive shafts, with split poly bearings for economical and durable life. A simple front idler shaft mechanism uses durable poly sprockets on 1 15/16” shafts. Steel sprockets are available upon request. High torque hydraulic motors power the floor for fast and easy unloading. A wide 90 inch box body provides for a high capacity trailer made to last.
Each of these forage boxes and trailers are available with a simple top hinged swing gate or convenient double “barn style” doors that latch securely in the floor chain. Five or six foot wall heights, with optional extension panels, may be ordered to assist in over-the-side loading of manure, grain, sugar beets, or the many other commodities. Semi trailers are available with new axle undercarriages to maximize your hard earned dollar.
