bottom dump trailer

11 posts in this topic

Posted

I have plans to develop a bottom dump trailer. But living in Europe I cannot measure one out to have it accurate. Is there anyone who can help me with this. On the website of Hayworth equipment (Acheson, Alberta, Canada) is a nice side drawing of Loadline cross gate trailer I think would be a nice trailer. I have contacted them but they said they did not have any other info. A front photo would help some but a drawing in that kind would really be welcome.

Hope someone can help, thanks.

I have seen their websites. I'm looking for a single one. Three axle preferred. Cross gate are clamp is an issue that is no that important. We want to try and make a kit of it in scale 1:24/25.

thanks,

Hessel

Thanks for that. As you noticed I already have downloaded a lot of pics. Plans are to make one like the one in the last pic. Maybe a trailing like in the first. This depends on the info I can find.

Thanks anyway. I noticed the manufacturers do not supply info easy. I will never use info commercial. Also I will have to compromise in making the model to get it right. I hope someone else will lend a hand....

Here is a photo of my high detailed model 1/64 trailer.  It is made by Diecast Promotions. Maybe you can get one of these and scale it up.

I was scrolling trough the topics and saw this one. I have been able to develop two bottom dump trailers. You can find them on our Fotki site:
