They can run behind or along side self-propelled forage harvesters. Art's Way offers an extensive line of forage handling equipment to help you bring in higher quality forage, and get it into your silos, bunkers or bags faster. You'll find several models to choose to add convenience to your work. The entire line is available either with roofs or as open top models. Truck mount and trailer models add more choices to fill every need.
The Miller Pro forage boxes are the longest forage handling line in the industry and offer excellence in design, state of the art manufacturing, highest quality of material plus exceptional fit and finish. The exclusive 4-speed shift-under-load enclosed gear transmission is the only offering of its kind in the industry. Consistency of speeds is a major advantage of the 4-speed positive gear transmission. Control is smooth and predictable and clean out is faster with speeds up to 12.1 ft/min. When looking to improve your forage quality with high capacity harvesting, look to the long standing Miller Pro line from Art's Way Manufacturing.
Improving forage quality...
with high capacity harvesting
Today's high capacity forage harvesting requires bigger forage boxes and faster ways of getting the job done. Miller Pro offers receiver boxes for both truck and trailer mount to meet these needs. They can be side loaded with Miller Pro high lift dump boxes, or can run behind or along side self-propelled forage harvesters. Miller Pro offers an extensive line of forage handling equipment to help you bring in higher quality forage, and get it into your silos, bunkers or bags faster.
A growing line...
You'll find more models to choose from, plus new configurations to add convenience to your work. The entire line is available either with roofs or as open top models. Truck mount and trailer models add more choices to fill every need.
The entire line is available in box lengths up to 20 feet. Optional 4' higher roof or side extensions add even more capacity. Heavy weight constructed running gear is available in either single or tandem axle wagons or tandem axle trailers.
Receiver boxes are ideal for top filling because there are no obstructions such as rafters or supports in the center of the box. The sides are reinforced with both a heavy "Z" shaped side sill and a massive structural beam going full length on the top edge of both sides along with a cross support at the front and rear of the forage box. The side stakes are the largest in the industry measuring an impressive 5" x 2-1/2" in size.
Side Extensions and 4th Beater
The receiver boxes can be fitted with side extensions to increase the load capacity. With the side extensions it is recommended that an optioanl fourth beater be added to ensure a smooth flow of material to the blower.
Trailer Mounted Receiver Boxes
The MILLER PRO 5300 receiver box mounted on a tandem trailer is an ideal way to handle the needs of having to fill bags and upright silos along with bunker silos while obtaining a smooth ride with good trailing and maneuverability. It is not uncommon to be able to travel one or two gears faster in field conditions than with a conventional steerable wagon.
PTO drive lines can remain attached to the tractor. You can start the PTO before leaving the tractor saving two trips in and out of your tractor cab not having to attach and detach the PTO drive line while at the blower or bagger. While using in a bunker situation it is not necessary to leave the tractor at all.
5300 Series Highlights
The Miller Pro forage box is well recognized for its exceptional performance, reliability and long-lasting durability.
Fold Down Cross Conveyor Extension
An optional 18" (30" overall) fold down cross conveyor extension makes it very easy to approach the blower, especially with today's large tractors. The fold down extension can also be used for bunk feeding. A spring assist makes it quick and easy to fold. When folded the extension closes off the cross conveyor opening.
Truck Mount Forage Boxes
The complete line of MILLER PRO forage boxes is available in truck mount versions. Drive systems can be either hydraulic or mechanical. These boxes can be front unload, rear unload or front/rear unload, with or without roofs, side extensions or fourth beater.
Unique dual feathering clutches.
Maximum control. Easy operation.
Exclusive. Provides a simple and positive gear-to-gear drive for smooth unloading under all crop conditions. Massive bronze worm gear and rugged gear train operate inside a sealed oil bath. Beefy design includes heavy drive collar, large output shaft and heavy detent springs.
Consistency of speeds is a major advantage of our 4-speed positive gear transmission. Control is smooth and predictable. Cleanout is faster with speeds up to 12.1 ft/min. Variable speed drives on other boxes cause the apron speed to fluctuate as a result of the ever-changing load.
Crop Clear™ rafterless roof
Allows unobstructed rafter-free crop loading and unloading. Corrugated and formed heavy gauge aluminized steel has superior strength, appearance and corrosion resistance. Heavy duty roof edge protector. Removable in sections for loading combined corn.
18" Metering Augers
Provide the most uniform feed flow in the industry. Large diameter prevents undercutting. Welded chipper tines start easily in tightly packed loads. Top auger setback practically eliminates carryover and enhances unloading performance by creating a smooth flowing waterfall of crop.
Front Drive System
The front drive chain is spring loaded to ensure the proper tension and eliminates chain whip.
Independent Drives for Auger and Outfeed - Unequalled Crop Unloading Control
Exclusive feathering clutch system coupled with a shift-under-load 4-speed gear box lets the operator start extra full loads smoothly, and provide positive, direct unloading speeds.
Outfeed Feathering Clutch
Allows the operator to feather the outfeed apron to help start heavy loads slowly, without producing clumps that can block your forage blower. This clutch is also the quick-release safety clutch. The PTO turns freely for easy hookup.
Metering Auger Feathering Clutch
Allows the operatir to feather the augers to clean them, without bringing the load forward. Single handle allows operator to stop and/or feather the augers to ease a big clump into the outfeed. No other forage box has this user-friendly system...some have no clutch at all.
Centralized Operator Controls
Cross Conveyor Chain Restraints
Reduces potential residue buildup over full length of cross conveyor
Removable Cleanout Panel
Bottom of unit pan has access panel for easy seasonal cleanout of material
Drive Line Safety Shields Swing Open
Sheilding on gearbox and belt drive systems is smaller, more secure and provides easier access. Front hinge prevents panels from catching the wind during transport if accidently left unlatched
Heavy Duty Needle Bearing PTO Driveline
PTO or Hydraulic Drive
PTO drive unloads in as little as 30 seconds. Hydraulic drive unloading time varies with tractor hydraulics.
Is 5/8" pressure treated marine grade plywood. Front/rear unload boxes have super slippery poly clad floor to reduce friction and stress in either direction.
Oven Cured Primary & Finish Coating
Assures superior corrosion protection, and creates the best appearance of any forage box on the market
Front/Rear Unload • 2 Direction Drive
Unloading direction is easy to change and requires no tools. Simply move a drive coupler from the front shaft to the rear shaft, or vice versa. No need for time-consuming changing of drive chains.
17 Ton Wagon
17 Ton Receiver Box Trailer
MILLER PRO has designed a tandem axle trailer to be used with receiver boxes. This system is a great way to transport forage quickly and smoothly through fields while placing no twisting strain at all on the forage box while going through waterways and field approaches. In normal field conditions it is possible to go a gear or two faster than with a conventional steerable wagon!
The trailer is extremely well built with a massive main beam (heavy wall structural steel tubing) running the full length of the trailer. This supports a heavy framework of structural steel tubing.
