Full Throttle

40-Foot Open Ribbed 3-Bay 70-Ton Hoppers with Heap Shields

Shields have been used abroad on hoppers and trams since the 1800's, but not until large drags of coal became common here in the 1930's did their usefulness become apparent. Coal loads could be piled, creating a slightly larger capacity without fear of spillage and waste... a boon!

All hoppers feature heap shields and custom loads from Hay Brothers. All cars are equipped with Full Throttle's own Bettendorf trucks, metal wheels and knuckle couplers. Click the product thumbnails for larger images.
