Hopper bottom cones
Hopper bottom cones have been on the market forthe past few years in Canada and are now being manufactured in Hope, N.Dak. They're designed to retrofit any diameter new or used grain bin. The hopper is a welded steel unit that comes with an optional self-supporting base unit and various different aeration set-ups. These hoppers adapt to any size bin, have a low profile, and have a deep drop center and built-in auger boot.
Most other hoppers on the market are high-profile units with slide gates for unloading. Our hoppers are lower and thus more stable and a there are no slides to mess with, making it more care-free.
The first low-profile hopper was built in a small country shop in Saskatchewan about 10 years ago for two local farmers who were tired of hoppers on the market. Not until recently have they finally started to catch on. (Dan Kosolofski, Micada Ventures, Inc., Box 57, Hope, N.Dak. 58046 ph 701945-2701)
