Dump Wagon

I didn't know what this thing was, just that it took the late afternoon light nicely standing by the side of the road. After some Google sleuthing, I think I can identify it as a side dumping silage wagon, or dump wagon. The diagonal tube across the front is a hydraulic piston that lifts the hopper up and pivots it over the top of the horizontal frame to dump the contents.
