Barber Nurse Boxes are now available in capacities ranging from 4 to 25 tons with both side and rear discharge available (pictured here is the 19-Ton Nurse Box). They provide easy handling of fertilizer, grain, and seed, and popular features include a mild (powder coated finish) or stainless steel welded design and frame, flatbed or trailer mount depending on the model. The hopper is manufactured with 12-gauge mild or 304 stainless steel. The drive system features truck hydraulics or, depending on the model, a self contained hydraulic system including a 15-, 18- or 30-HP gas engine, oil tank and battery.
