Sampler Mounts On Bin Wall
"It gives you a grain sample from inside the bin in seconds, whenever you want it, with-out ever leaving the ground," says Dick Preston about his new probe that installs through the outside of bins to draw samples quickly and safely.
The sampler consists of a 4-ft. long probe which enters the bin at an upward angle. The probe is fitted with a spring-loaded valve connected to a push rod that's controlled from outside the bin.
To use, you simply pull on a rope which opens the valve and allows grain to come down into a pail that hangs on a hook under the bottom of the probe.
Installation on empty bins requires cutting a small hole in the side of the bin. "A 35-ft. high bin requires about three samplers," notes Preston.
Sells for $115 (Canadian) plus S & H.
