Carrying Capacities

Unverferth running gears are available in 13-, 12-, 10- and 8-ton carrying capacities to meet individual grower needs. Each model is engineered and on-farm tested for optimum performance and the frames are precisely constructed and aligned to ensure straight, smooth trailing.
Retractable Tongue


A telescoping tongue is standard on 13- and 12-ton models and optional on 10- and 8-ton models for convenient hookup.  On 13-, 10- and 8-ton models, the tongue length can be adjusted from 78” to 111” to match different wagon use conditions.  The 13-ton model running gear features a tongue counterbalance for easy hitch attachment.

13- and 12-ton models are standard with truck-style steering components for added durability and transport safety.  10- and 8-ton models feature 180° automotive-type steering for a tighter turning radius and extended life of the steering components.  Self-lubricating renewable bronze bushings in the steering components and front spindles of 10- and 8-ton models add years to service life.

Unverferth running gears feature the widest variety of wheel and tire sizes in the industry to meet individual needs.  Heavy-duty spindles and hubs (8-bolt on 13- and 12-ton, 6-bolt on 10- and 8-ton) and transport chain are standard on all models.

Rear-Surge Brakes


Optional rear-surge brakes for the 13-ton model automatically disengage for backing.
Running Gear 10-Ton


All models feature four stake-pockets and adjustable wheel base for convenient matching to a wide variety of box sizes. 10- and 8-ton models feature adjustable-width stake pockets from 38” to 42” while 13- and 12-ton models are fixed at 42”. An optional 108” coupling pole can replace the standard pole on 10- and 8-ton models.

Running Gear 8-Ton

Additional Features

The double MIG continuous-bead welding process and extra bracing virtually eliminate downtime due to load stress. All running gears feature a high-quality powder-coat finish in red or green that helps resist corrosion. Easy-to-reach grease fittings assist with easy maintenance at all pivot points and add to the longevity of the running gear.
