Self propelled auger for unloading grain from flat storage to bins
We needed a self-propelled auger for unloading grain from flat storage to our bins. The Massey Harris Super 92 is the only combine I know of that's got an engine mounted low to the ground on the back of the frame so the auger can be kept down lower than it would be on some tractor mounts. I stripped the combine down to the frame, leaving the operator platform, engine and driveline intact. Then I mounted an 8-in. by 61-ft. auger on the chassis. It's driven off the end of the beater shaft by a triple pulley. The lower end of the auger is lifted by a hydraulic cylinder. The upper end is raised by cable. We can back the auger 16 ft. into quonset buildings. With the use of a 15-ft. drag auger, we can get about 30 ft. into a bin (Bob Brekke, Box 128, Nielsville, Minn. 56568 ph 218 946-2875).
