Feed and Water Transport Wagon
4-wheel cart with tongue that has 2 white rectangular liquid hoppers on the back and a larger feed-type hopper on the front

Workers with leg, arm, and back impairments can feed calves in hutches or pastured livestock with a Feed & Water Transport Wagon. Feed and water can be dispensed directly to troughs without lifting and carrying buckets by hand. The towable wagon consists of a feed hopper and a water tank (both polyester) mounted on a rubber-wheeled steel frame with hitching tongue. Custom-built according to users' needs, hopper sizes range from .8 to 2.8 tons and tank sizes from 250 to 275 gallons. Unloading the feed is accomplished via an electric or hydraulic motor connected to the towing vehicle, while the water is dispensed via a gas-powered pump or gravity-flow through a hose.
