Tropper has had more than 60 years of experience in the construction of high quality silo vehicles for the transportation of fodder, flour, grain and other free flowing substances
The advantages of a Tropper silo vehicle are clearly recognizable:

·         Solutions according to customer specifications (3 m³ to 53 m3 volume)

·         Qualified advisors with well-based experience in the industry

·         Cylindrical shape of the drum leads to a low centre of gravity and therefore excellent driving characteristics

·         Long-life Tropper discharge system made of stainless steel

·         Bag storage integrated on the sides for bagged goods

·         Smooth surfaces on the hosepipe for advertising

·         Central operation at the end of the vehicle next to the discharge arm  

·         Calibratable on board weighing  

·         Central lubrication for stop valves

·         Fast loading and discharge

Central feed line system


In a Tropper silo vehicle the central feed line system is made of maintenance-free, abrasion-resistant stainless steel. The main advantage of this system is the direct discharge of free flowing substances. Due to this the free flowing substances (flour, fodder etc) are handled gently.

OnBoard Weighing


The robust weighing unit is mounted between the super structure and the truck frame whereby the flexibility between drum and truck is maintained due to special brackets. Even when the vehicle is standing at an angle of up to 15% weighing can be carried out. Weighing is done on site, displayed on a digital display and the delivery note is printed out immediately.

The Tropper on-board weighing system is delivered with a classification of Class III. This accuracy class is necessary in Germany for the weighing of goods for sale (pellets, fodder, wood pellets, flour).


Tropper Airblock


With the smooth running Airblock you can count on an extremely safe air-end and large volume sound insulators at the suction and pressure end. The Airblock is also equipped with low maintenance filters.

A very fast discharge performance at low revs ensures low fuel consumption

Welding seam check


Tropper demands very high quality. Because the silo drums are the main and most important component of our silo vehicles a complete quality check of the silo drums is carried out in an x-ray measurement.

Redirection line with central distribution

The suction-pressure redirection line with central distribution enables simple trouble-free shifting of free flowing loads from one silo cell into another container or into its final storage (e.g. wheat can be sucked directly from a silo trailer into a silo cell of the tractor unit from where it can be discharged into a free-standing silo). Product mixing is avoided. Every cell can be filled individually.
