The KBH Corporation of Clarksdale, Miss., the manufacturer and distributor of quality agricultural equipment for more than 50 years, recently launched an all new product, a durable steel construction hopper bottom trailer.

According to Tim Tenhet, director of sales at KBH, the new hopper bottom trailer has more structural steel than any other trailer in the industry.

“The new KBH HB1350 is designed for durability and service year after year,” notes Tenhet.

“With it's 12 gauge sheet metal construction and vertical tubing support columns, this product will be showing return on your investment years after lighter-built trailers are no longer in use.”

Some of the new KBH trailer's special features include: a hopper capacity of 1,350 cubic feet in two compartments; 25" ground clearance when it is empty; and smooth operating rack and pinion doors and large 27" × 21" door openings.

The HB1350 also comes with all new running gears and a heavy-duty leaf spring suspension. Its two-speed landing gear comes with a 10” × 2” tubing flotation dolly pad.

According to Tenhet, year to date sales of the new product have been strong, as more and more cotton farmers are increasing their grain acreage in light of rising grain prices.

“Many new KBH trailers are already in use and feedback from wheat growers has been positive,” says Tenhet.

“With the strong presence KBH has in the seed, fertilizer and cotton equipment markets, developing a grain harvest trailer was a natural compliment to our diversified product lines,” adds Buddy Bass, president.
