Our North Dakota Electric Hopper Opener lets you stay out of the dust and be in full control. We use the Pro Trap electric hopper opener. It is a worry free system with gears and housing that are all metal and it is built to handle hard stops which gets rid of the need for limit switches that can be unreliable and easily damaged by harsh working conditions.
The Actual torque varies based on wire size, length and battery voltage and the motor is sized to protect your trailer components. The 150 low-torque motor is standard for trailers with strap style traps, the 250 motor for rack-and-pinion traps.
The electric hopper opener includes the most advanced remote of its kind on the market today, the SMART-touch SMART2 remote.
The SMART2™ remote deactivates when the flip-style cover is closed or shut off after three minutes of inactivity. A cab-mounted or trailer-mounted master disconnect switch kills power to the tarp and traps – no complicated button sequence required. The patented sealed, quick-connect SMARTwire™ harness reduces connector corrosion and adds plug-and-play convenience at installation.
Here are a couple YouTube videos for the North Dakota Electric Hopper Opener. The first one demonstrates the opener in action and the second one shows how the SMART 2 remote is programmed (video #1, video #2). Visit our YouTube channel’s home page for more videos.
We also offer the Auto Trap electric hopper opener, the industry’s premium choice in electric hopper openers.
