Portable Auger Drive
To avoid equipping each bin with an unloading auger drive, Assumption, Ill., farmer Paul Corzine, made a portable drive that matches up with augers on all his bins.
Riding on a 2-wheel axle, the stub auger is powered by a 5-hp. single phase electric motor that belt-drives the end of the auger via double V-belt. A winch raises and lowers the auger via steel cable threaded through an overhead pulley. A universal joint connects the auger drive unit to the bin auger.
Corzine says the portable unit's quick to hook up and tows easily behind a pickup. Control box mounts directly above motor.
