"Maximum Reach" Gravity Wagon Auger
“Today’s planters and seed drills keep getting bigger, which makes them harder to fill. Our new 18-ft. Maximum Reach auger can reach out 28 ft. in front and 55 ft. from side to side to make the job much easier,” says Howard Green, Market Farm Equipment Ltd., Dashwood, Ont.
  The 6-in. dia. auger comes with 5-in. cupped plastic flighting, a 3-stage telescoping downspout that extends to 17 ft., a hinged cleanout door, and an electric on/off valve with remote keyfob. The auger hinges in the middle and folds for safe transport and storage.
  “As far as I know it’s the longest gravity wagon auger on the market,” says Green. “The 18-ft. length is made possible because the auger hinges in the middle, allowing for it to store within the length and height of most gravity boxes. Because of the extra length you don’t have to move your gravity wagon as often in order to fill your planter or drill, which maximizes your planting time. Also, there’s no worry about catching low wires or other obstacles during transport.”
  The auger’s standard hopper fits gravity wagon door widths up to 38 1/2 in. An optional 60-in. hopper is available for larger door widths. Green says the auger is “priced comparable to most competitive steel augers”.
