Grain Box Corner Auger
"I enjoy FARM SHOW very much and can't wait to see all the new ideas in each issue. Now I'd like to share a couple handy ideas with your readers," says Larry D. Pelzer, Lewis, Iowa.
"I installed a 3-in. auger across the back of my grain truck in order to get the grain out of the corners when dumping without having to climb in back with a shovel. It has right and left hand screws to move grain to the center. The drive is an old car starter mounted on a back corner under the box. I simply push a switch to start it once grain stops running out of the box on its own. In 8 to 10seconds, the box is completely empty.
''Another idea that has worked out well was to mount an old air conditioner compressor under the hood of my pickup. It's connected to a pressure tank in the back of the truck. This is very handy to run air tools, fill tires or whatever else you may need compressed air for in the field."
