Make Your Own Low-Cost Bulk Seeder Handler
If you've got an old gravity wagon that's too small to be practical any more, you can give it new life by converting it into a low-cost bulk seed handler, says Convey-All USA, Hamilton, N. Dak. The company sells a belt-type conveyor that can be mounted on any side-unload wagon.
  "It eliminates the need to handle bags and makes it much easier to load your planter. The belt conveyor is very gentle on seed," says Lee Becker, company representative.
  The 8-in. wide conveyor belt is enclosed in a 6-in. dia., 15-ft. long auger tube. There's a 4-in. dia., PVC discharge spout on top that telescopes out from 8 to 14 ft. for filling planters. The conveyer bolts to the wagon frame and is raised or lowered by a hand-cranked winch. Power is provided by tractor hydraulics or by a self-contained hydraulic pack (not supplied). A hydraulic valve mounted on top of the auger is used to operate the unit and is activated by pulling on a rope located next to the discharge spout. The auger stores alongside the wagon for transport.
  Sells for $1,895 plus S&H.
