In-Bin Sweep Auger Breaks Down Into Sections
The Wheatheart "In-Bin Super Sweep's" 8-in. dia. auger sections are assembled by locking short stub shafts together. Each section rides on a small steel wheel at one end and is fitted with a backboard that scrapes the bin floor clean. The standard kit comes with 11 1/2 ft. of flighting which is enough for a 24-ft. dia. bin. By adding more sections you can make the auger fit bigger bins. An in-bin pivot assembly allows the auger to be adjusted up to 10 in. to make it fit any bin. A safety shut-off valve automatically shuts the auger off if anything gets tangled in it.
The standard kit for a 24-ft. dia. bin sells for about $1,000.
