Grain Bin Reseller Also Custom Builds Dump Pits
He started and grew a successful business that buys, sells, moves and reconstructs used grain bins. They’ve repurposed bins from 5,000 up to 1,000,000 bu. capacity not just in their home state of Michigan, but also around the country. Wood maintains a crew that knows their trade well.
After installing used bins for several farmers, Wood was asked if his crew could put in dump pits and grain legs. It didn’t take Wood long to realize there was a market for those services, so he enlisted the services of an engineer to design the dump pits and started taking orders. Now the company builds pits that range in size from 500 to 2,000 bushels. Wood says many of the pits are designed to complement used bins that his company has installed or will soon install on farms. They’ve also done pits for commercial operations.
DumpPits.com custom-designs and builds every pit it installs. They use high strength steel for the walls and I-beams to support the deck. Their big 1,000 and 2,000 bu. pits have decks rated for 300,000 lbs., 3 times the strength needed for a fully-loaded semi truck. Pits can be designed and built to any dimension, ranging from 6 ft. long up to full semi truck length. Discharge augers range in size from 8 to 12 in.
Wood says customers enjoy working with his company because he runs an honest business with fair pricing, superior products and exceptional service. To complement the pit building service, his company also builds overhead structures for loading out trucks. The company offers complete turn-key services from site preparation, leveling, hole excavation, pit installation and re-grading to a smooth surface. Pricing depends on specifications needed.
