Model 250-7S, 250-7SB, 385SD, 440SD, 540SD, 680SD, 760SD - Gravity Wagons
From Gravity Wagons
The road to farming is rugged, full of unexpected obstacles, bumps, twists and turns. That is why since 1960, J&M has built tank-like gravity wagons to get you through the worst conditions with ease. The heavy duty tank construction features steep slopes, corner valley slats and a sump design, providing fast and easy clean-out, even in high moisture grains. The front wheels feature an automotive tow setting for true-tracking. Offset runners allow you to make the tightest turns with ease. A pull through extended rear hitch eliminates the stress on the rear axle during tandem towing. Reinforced sleeved spindles provide maximum strength and durability, allowing you to hold more and travel faster in the harshest conditions without failure, while the cushion tongue smoothly activates the two or four wheel hydraulic drum brakes. The new style rocking bolster increases stability, yet provides flexibility in rough terrain.
