• A high-torque motor with five-year non-prorated warranty and high-efficiency planetary gear reduction.
• An electric brake that automatically locks the hopper when not in use.
• A universal mounting bracket that accommodates most trailer models.
• Pre-assembled mounting brackets are plated to protect against corrosion.
• Pre-wired motor and remote/switch box simplify installation.
• Standard 5-channel SMARTransmitter™ that can run the tarp, front hopper, rear hopper, work lights or other 12-volt accessories available from Shur-Co.®

The SMARTransmitter™ was designed with safety in mind with a flip-style cover for the ProTrap™ deactivates the system when the cover is closed or after three minutes of inactivity. No other design puts all of these features into one easy-to-use and easy-to-install system like the ProTrap™.
