Mark Cox runs an 1100-hectare (2718-acre) farm – of which 500 hectares (1235 acres) are leased – in Te Pirita, a small rural area at the heart of the Canterbury Plains of New Zealand. With a focus on cattle finishing and dairy support, the farm relies on reliable and efficient equipment to streamline daily tasks. Among their trusted arsenal is the recently released Hustler LoadMax TX110 tip trailer, a versatile workhorse that has proven its mettle in the demanding agricultural landscape.
“We’ve been operating a Hustler Chainless feeder for about six or seven years. Really reliable piece of equipment – upgraded our feedout wagons to Hustler,” Mark said. This positive experience with Hustler products led them to explore the LoadMax TX110 tip trailer when it came to investing in a farm trailer. When it comes to getting new equipment for his farm, Cox is meticulous in his selection process.
“It looked to be a fantastic new product,” Mark recalled. “The equipment we do buy we do take a bit of time to figure out which one’s good and which one’s bad. Looked at a number of different trailers that are on the market and this seems to be a trailer that’s got all the features of all the trailers in one unit. Solidly built so that will last for years,” he added.
“LoadMax has proved to be reliable, great bit of equipment with good features”
Recognising the importance of investing in equipment that stands the test of time, Mark emphasizes the trailer’s solid construction, ensuring years of dependable service.

This flexibility allows the operator to seamlessly transition between different activities, from hauling shingles to transporting hay, thanks to the trailer’s drop-down sides and generous size deck. The ability to tackle multiple tasks with a single unit saves time and effort, making it an invaluable asset for the farm’s operations. “Being on a farm, there’s lots of little jobs all the time. Having a versatile trailer is important,” Mark said.
