One Stop Farm Lubrication Center
Handiest system we've seen for storing and dispensing lubricants is the Chief Storage Center, from Sauk Valley Equipment Co., Rock Falls, Ill. It lets you store from 4 to 36 speciallybuilt 65 gal. storage drums, each equipped with a dispensing spigot, on a permanent wall rack.
"This system means no more lifting of heavy 55-gal. drums. It also prevents waste, takes very little room, and you save money by being able to bulk purchase oil and lubricants," says Jim King, Jr., sales manager.
Individual drums are permanently mounted on heavy-duty steel frames. Each drum features a read-at-a glance sight gauge. Hoses run from each drum to a control console for easy dispensing.
Drums are refilled back through the dispensers with a pump that sucks lubricants out of the drum they're delivered in. It takes from 4 to 12 minutes to transfer material from a new delivery drum to the shelf drum, and the job can be done unattended. A check valve prevents backflow of the oil.
"It's convenient because you don't have drums sitting all over your shop. And, you don't have to lift heavy drums onto racks. Also, you can tell at a glance what your inventory is," King points out.
The storage system is primarily designed for lubricating oil, including hydraulic oils, motor oil, cutting oil, and transmission oil. It is not designed for storing gasoline or other volatile liquids.
A 4-barrel storage rack, with transfer pump, takes up 31/a by 41/z ft. of floor space and sells for $935. A 6 barrel model sells for $1,300.
