Kit Converts Auger Into Grain Cleaner
"Makes your auger just as effective as a rotary screen grain cleaner," says Randy Reinke, spokesman for Custom Products, Litchfield, Minn., manufacturer of the "Clean Machine".

The powered grain cleaning screen and blower fits to your auger so grain is cleaned of chaff, weed seeds, bee's wings, etc., as it's augered to a bin, truck or wherever. Reinke points out that auger capacity and speed isn't affected and, that by augering and cleaning grain in the same process, you save the electricity and horse-power needed to power a separate rotary cleaner.

Custom Product's grain cleaning auger screen is unique in that it vibrates back and forth to clean out material that could plug the screen. In addition, the kit includes a blower that sucks out bee's wings, chaff, insects and other debris too light to be properly screened.

To install, you cut a 38-in. section out of the auger tube and attach the addition kit in its place. Rubber sleeves join the Clean Machine to the auger tube to isolate vibration to the screen area. Vibrating action is caused by an enclosed electric motor. The blower pulls material through a slot cut into the tube and is powered by a 1/3 hp. motor.

Screens are easily changed and are available for corn, soybeans, wheat and small grains. Clean Machine's available to fit most 6, 7 and 8-in. dia. augers. Sells for $1,090.
