That's a "Dale Philips" brand.  They make almost good stuff.  The four 
"bumpers" (the cast pieces on the not-nut ends of the the shafts) all 
broke within the first fifty hours of operation.  I also have a Dale 
Philips 10' shredder that had drive shafts that wouldn't handle the 
needed power.

I think the twisted A frame came from loosing a bolt which probably 
broke because of the weight of the rail dangling while in transit.

My education on real truck farming equipment is sadly lacking.  Please
