Grain Weigher For Augers
Priced at less than $300, it's portable and can be moved from one auger to another. Used on a combine discharge auger, for example, it automatically keeps tab of bushels during the harvesting of corn, wheat, soybeans or barley. A control box in the cab gives a direct reading of bushels discharged at each unloading and the cumulative total for a plot or field. Actual grain moisture content during harvest is automatically converted to bin-dry basis in determining bushels being discharged by the combine auger.
Grain and feed mixes passing through the auger tube activate the weighing arm which is sensitive to pressure and mounted at the outlet end. The 12-volt battery system for combines can be converted to 110 or 220 volts, via an adapter, for use at headquarters with stationary or portable grain and/or feed augers. Installation time is under 30 min. and requires only 2 drill holes on the outlet tube.
