Drier Cyclone Aspirator on Trailer - Any Photos Please?


South East
Hoping to make a lid for a trailer and mount our mobile drier's cyclone on the top to drop the dust and chaff into the trailer. Lift lift lid off with loader to go and tip. Would appreciate seeing photos of something similar. Thanks

Had you considered a four legged light canopy, bit like a gazebo that you can reverse trailer under or a very simple lean to if the drier is under cover.
I just think I'd soon get peed off with getting covered in barley ayles and dust every time I had to lift anything off a trailer, it will be an extra miserable job, in the middle if an already miserable job, imo.

I put a lid on a trailer and used a canvas to connect to top of tail door . It had a hole 2 feet square in the lid and had a sheet of ply 4 foot square with a hole to match the cyclone s it had a bit of Lee way when parking iter cyclone
Just turned cyclone upwards when emptying trailer
I now build a box with square bales and hang cyclone over the top
It's say to lift bales away from the end to empty it but an old door would do better
Prefer this to the trailer
