Need More Room At The Top Of Your Bin?
Many bins put up over the years were designed to fit a 6-in. auger. However, if youíve upgraded to a 13 to 16-in. auger, it might not fit through the top anymore.
Rockyford Steel in Rockyford, Alberta, Canada, can solve the problem with a 36-in. Collar Upgrade.
The Rockyford Collar Upgrade includes a new collar that bolts right over the old one. It also contains a Remote Lid Opening Kit and a new 36-in. lid.
The collar will fit on a variety of bins including Westeel, Butler, Twister, Goebel, and Behlen bins.
The collar kit comes with a Remote Lid Opener thatís held closed by two heavy-duty springs. The lid will slide back smoothly on a rail completely clear of the auger.
When youíve successfully unloaded the grain, grab the remote unit and either close the lid or leave it open slightly to air out the inside. A strong cable and chain bracket system makes it easy to manipulate the remote lid.
Rockyford Steel has the experience to make the installation process go smoothly. The family-owned and operated business has been around since 1996.
However, their experience goes back even further. Adrian de Groot began building and repairing grain bins in 1977. He knows how to fix issues that farmers run into when using older bins.
The 36-in. Collar Upgrade Kit sells for $750 (CAD), plus shipping. Discounts are available for farmers who buy ten or more collars. Bins can be purchased online or by calling the business. Shipping may not be available to all areas, which may require a trip to Canada to pick up a new collar.
