The Live Bottom Trailer comes equipped with a 4 2160 Chain. This makes the unit stronger and much more durable. The unique Trout River Chain has a whopping 70,000 lbs of pull strength (x2), giving you a total of 140,000 lbs of strength! This is designed to handle anything you throw at it.


Our Live Bottom Trailer is the only trailer currently on the market that includes a standard reversing valve. This valve will allow you to unload as much or as little of your payload as needed. You are in full control of your load without gravity taking control and forcing you to empty more than you need too. Work smart, not hard.


Trout River Industries have an expansive knowledge of conveyor systems and are the only manufacturer of Live Bottom Trailers that build their conveyors on a hardened Rail System. Combined with the Junior I-Beam construction, the load is spread evenly throughout the conveyor, allowing it to handle stressful loads without fear of damaging the conveyor.


The Rounded Tub design is the defining characteristic of the Live Bottom Trailer. It has a lower center of gravity, which means your load won’t shift as you navigate corners. The Rounded Tub is also 2ft lower than our competitors, making it easier and safer to tackle overhead lines or loader buckets. Safety has always been important to us.
