Grain truck is a type of truck body intended for transportation of different types of bulk cargo in various branches of agriculture. On average, the maximum weight capacity of these vehicles ranges between 18,000 and 40,000 kg.
From the structural perspective, the grain truck is a specialized body (skip, closed-box body, flatbed body with high boards covered with tent cloth, less often - a special tank) mounted on a truck chassis frame (usually two- or three-axle).
One of the distinctive features of this body is presence of a sliding or removable roof or a hatch in the roof, which allows optimizing the loading process through vertical loading of bulk cargo (e.g., from a combined harvester or a grain elevator). Moreover, grain truck bodies have the possibility of automatic discharge through unloading hatches established in the bottom or with the use of a hydraulic system providing an opportunity of dump unloading.
The main use of grain trucks is agriculture, where these trucks are used for transportation of bulk cargo such as grains, legumes, fodder and pelleted feeds, seeds, etc. on general use roads. Extensive system of highways and high weight capacity of grain trucks (especially when used as a part of combination vehicles) allow them to successfully compete in the market of cargo transportation with the rail transport.
