Interior Features

DECK Pull out ramp is notched to fit over floor corrugations; allowing for more back clearance under the ramp in the stored position.

The optional translucent roof provides natural interior lighting.

FRONT COMPARTMENT Smooth Interior walls greatly reduce livestock bruising and are easier to wash with less contamination and better bio-security.

The cellar ramp has large beveled top rails for less bruising.

Completely sealed ramp corrugations can be easily washed and sanitized.

Wilson is standard with the “Reduced-Step” pull out ramp – Only 4” from ramp to stationary deck.

Full width hinges are used in strategic areas to reduce gate sag, lessen movement in sidewalls, and provide for stiffer connections.

All hinges are fitted with accessible grease zerks. Periodic maintenance will keep the hinge in good working condition.

The upper level of the nose is formed from aluminum decking plank.

Gate pin storage – no fumbling for a loose swinging gate pin at critical times.

Nose decking is easily stored in the channel provided – Simply nest and slide into place. Only a 5” step from the lower deck floor to the start of the cellar ramp – much more livestock friendly.

Floor corrugations on 16-1/2” centers allow for easier shoveling. (Scoop shovels will easily fit between the corrugations.) Floor corrugations, in the belly and the rear compartment, stop approximately 10” in front of the floor drains for easier clean out and better bio-security.

The front divide gate has the easy-to-maneuver counterbalanced ramp that provides smooth access for livestock into both levels of the nose area.

Wilson’s aluminum flooring is a 6061T6 hardness – the industry’s hardest alloy.

Full length hinges are incorporated for greater strength, better bio-security, and a shorter step out of the lower nose area. Wilson uses stainless steel rivets to fasten the tread plate flooring – No corrosion between rivets and flooring.

The access gate is a standard feature in the lower front divide. The gate allows for easier maintenance, clean out, or the removal of a downed animal in the front compartment.
