Art's Way USER-FRIENDLY FORAGE BOXES

From the cab you can "take full control of the box."

Are you a mid-sized operation looking for a straightforward, no-fuss forage box?

The Art’s Way 2100 Series forage box was built to speed up unload times with a fast, hydraulic drive system which allows you to switch from front unload to rear unload with the push of a button right from the cab. We believe a quality forage box doesn’t have to be loaded with unnecessary bells and whistles to get the job done.

What you need is a low-maintenance forage box with durable components and the ultimate versatility with running gear and truck-mount compatible frame. This simple, serviceable and affordable forage box will keep your cow candy rolling for years to come.

LIGHTNING-FAST UNLOAD

Our independently controlled hydraulic drive system sets us apart from the others in speed and convenience. Our rear- and front-unload options can be done right from the cab with the switch of a button clocking in at 4-minutes and 1-minute to unload respectively.

ROBUST CAPACITY

Pick the box size fit for you — 16, 18, 20, or 24-ft. — with corrugated-steel sides ready to take on the acidic environment of forage harvest.

VERSATILE HOOK UP OPTION

The standardized frame and sub-frame design means you can potentially mount our forage boxes to anything — be running gear or truck mount.

NO-FUSS ENGINEERING FOR EASIER MAINTENANCE

We’ve drastically reduced the number of unique parts on this machine. These streamlined components translate to a simple, low-maintenance forage box that just about anyone can service.

DURABLE FLOOR

The box floors are constructed with tough 1/2-in thick densilite material for reduced thermal expansion (no waves and buckles here) and minimal wear. These floors provide a slick surface for material to slide across to reduce trapped moisture buildup.

ALL-AROUND AFFORDABLE

With the 2100 Series your savings come upfront and throughout the life of ownership. Our engineers drastically streamlined components to create a simple design that equates to reduced maintenance costs and fewer breakdowns for an overall more economical package.

Art's Way gate delay

OPTIONAL GATE DELAY

Art’s Way gate delay option is activated with the start of the floor chain and holds the rear end gate open for smooth unload of material. It enables you to have a complete clean out. It swings shut as the floor disengages and you drive forward with a positive lock.
