While the Dutch and Germans seem to love a forage trailer with a chain-and-slat moving floor, most British and Irish contractors have largely stuck with the versatility of a tipping trailer for handling everything from grain to grass. Krone is now introducing the GX, which relies on a belt system to get cargo not only 'out' but — with the likes of bales and pallets — also 'into' the trailer body.
