Combine Hopper Alarm"Grain Sentry" is a new combine bin sensor and light that warns you when the bin is full and about to overflow.
"The Grain Sentry benefits cornbine operators who can't see clearly into their combine's grain tank, or operators who do a lot of night harvesting. It lets you concentrate on other things besides how full the bin is," says Bob Walton, production manager for Walton Rebuilding, Delphi, Ind.
The 3 3/8 by 4¢ in. pressure sensitive grain sensor bolts to the side of the bin at whatever height desired. As grain pushes against the sensor, a light on the steering column in the cab lights up.
Walton says the Grain Sentry works with all crops and fits any combine. Marketed through John Deere dealers, or factory direct, it sells for $49.75.
