Custom Built Grain PitsMy custom built grain pits come with 20 to 500 bu. capacity. The photo shows a 25-bu. grain pit equipped with a 4-ft. sq. steel grate, an 8-in. dia. auger, and an 8-in. dia., 11-ft. long "backdraw" auger. The "backdraw" auger allows you to remove grain from a building up to 11 ft. away and dump it into the pit. Prices vary from $2,000 for a small pit with just a cone and auger up to $6,000 for a 500 bu. pit equipped with a slide gate and backdraw. Designs are available so you can have your local fabricator build the pit to spec.
