"Never Spill" Spout Prevent Grain Spills
"The alarm goes off when the lower part of the spout fills up with grain. This gives you enough time to empty the auger without spilling over the edge of the bin or plugging up the auger," Gehrer says, adding that grain continues flowing out holes in the side of the spout after the alarm goes off.
The 2-ft. long UV protected plastic spout simply bolts to the grain auger. A 12-volt halogen nightlight also attaches to the auger to help position it in the bin opening.
A double insulated electric cord connects both sensor and light to the lower end of the auger where the alarm is strapped in place. Another cord then connects everything to the tractor's 12-volt system.
Sells for $385 (Can.) for the 10-in. auger model and $425 (Can.) for the 13-in. auger model.
