The best 1-2 punch in trailer automation! Pair your 4500 Series HD electric tarp with the ProTrap® electric hopper opener. It safely slides hopper doors open and closed with the touch of a button while you stay back, out of the dust.

The ProTrap’s all-metal gears and housing are designed to handle the hard stops, with a high-efficiency planetary gear reduction and breaker circuit at the battery to protect your motor. It eliminates the need for unreliable limit switches that are easily damaged going through the field or by harsh road conditions.

Actual torque varies based on wire size, length and battery voltage; our motors are sized to protect your trailer components. The 150 low-torque motor is standard for trailers with strap-style traps; the 250 motor is for rack-and-pinion traps.

Our SMART2™ and SMART1+™ remotes deactivate when the flip-style covers are closed or shut off after three minutes of inactivity. Everything is clearly labeled. A cab-mounted or trailer-mounted master disconnect switch kills power to the tarp and traps – no complicated button sequence required. The patented sealed, quick-connect SMARTwire™ harness reduces connector corrosion and adds plug-and-play convenience at installation.
