AutoTrap™ combines the best elements of Shur-Co® SMARTrailer™ design! You get a compact, high-clearance system at an affordable price, with patented SMARTwire™ connections and built-in compatability with our SMART2™ or SMART3™ remote.
The thru-bore motor design of the AutoTrap™ has performance characteristics comparable to our ProTrap® system, but in a more compact size and weight – nearly 40% lighter! This design also allows for easy one-bolt conversion to manual operation, if necessary. The protective polymer sleeve acts as a corrosion barrier between drive shaft and motor.
This system has a one-size-fits all design, to interface with 1-inch, 7/8-inch or 3/4-inch crank shafts. Wireless operation via pre-programmed SMART2™ or SMART3™ remote is standard while push-button controls at each opener are also included.
Available in 1-hopper, 2-hopper, 3-hopper and 4-hopper stand-alone configurations or in combination with 4500 Series HD electric tarps, AutoTrap™ is the industry’s premium choice in electric hopper openers.
