Kory wagons

Does anybody have any experience or knowledge of Kory hopper wagons?  I can buy new Korys for less than good KillBros are going for used.  They are made in Illinois.  TIA

Re: Kory wagons

I have a 6 ton kory gear purchased new in 2000.  I built the deck and it works great, it gets loaded with 10 bins of pumpkins all fall and trails perfectly at 30 mph.

Re: Kory wagons

Thanks  I'm looking at a 10 ton with a 260 bushel  box.  I only pull wagons about 10 mph loaded behind my pickup.

Re: Kory wagons

30 mph is only used for empty transport

Re: Kory wagons

OK..my theory on wagons is..(especially something like a hopper wagon that you only use 3 weeks per year) is...if you can buy a new one..most likely (if you treat it right and don't abuse it) you'll never wear it out..and with any luck, it will outlast you. That goes for virtually every wagon ever made. There are a lot of wagons sitting in barns right now..that have outlasted their usefullness simply because of their size.....so if you buy a new one...you will probably have it for life.

Re: Kory wagons

I had a 12 ton Kory gear under a chopper box . Tie rod ends were too lite and kept braking. traded it off. Now I'm looking for grain wagons and noticed Kory is the cheapest and I won't touch 'em.

Re: Kory wagons

That's pretty much what I was thinking too.  The ones I have bought new are in good shape.  Some of the wagons I bought used are getting "shaky".

Re: Kory wagons

The tie rods are 1 thing I didn't look at.  I'll compare them to the ends on my KB wagons.   Although I think the way you use wagons is more abusive than me just running them down the roads.
