Box Auger for Trucks Makes Unloading Easy
The box auger, invented by Wayne O'Connell, Regina, Sask., mounts in the back of your grain truck, bolting to the floor. The 7-in. auger comes in two sections and easily adjusts to fit any truck box. It sits inside a 9-in. square box and moves grain to the left side (driver's side) of the truck bed. From there, grain is dropped through a damper-style 7 by 12-in. door cut into the truck bed, and through a spout into the hopper.
The spout swivels 360? so you can aim it straight behind the truck, or to the side so you can drive alongside the auger hopper or elevator.
An added feature of the box auger is that it cleans out grain left in the box so you don't have to do any shoveling. A pivotal hinge allows easy final clean-out of a handful of kernels when changing from one crop to another.
If needed, you can still use the truck's center dump hole. The Box Auger doesn't interfere with operation of a drill fill auger. It's powered off truck hydraulics.
Sells for $995 (Canadian).
