    Default Forage boxes - Dion vs. Meyer - Other brands?

    Looking to upgrade our forage wagons to have front and rear unload abilities. We have bunkers and silos. Wondering which you would choose: Dion or Meyer wagons? They seem very similar but are there some weak points that you wish were better? Was thinking around 20' long with no roof. Pto plus hydraulic for rear drive motor. What usually breaks on these boxes?

    Thanks in advance

    My custom guy has used the same 24' Meyer's carts for the last 6 years. They're built rugged and hold up well. His biggest complaint has been the axles. The rear torque seems to stress them too much when fully loaded.

    Neighbor bought two of the 20' Meyer's wagons that you're interested in. No breakdowns as of yet and he really likes the twin auger system. Wished they ran a poly floor though the wood doesn't look like it will hold up.

    Thanks for the reply! We have a local running gear manufacturer called Horst. We have priced 20 ton for our 20 wagon. They have optional rocking bolsters. The other option is to get suspension on a wagon style.
    But we have heard it might be a waste of money
