Compact Grain Cleaner
"Since my grain bins are close together, I need a compact grain cleaner to save space at the unloading site," says Bernard Holscher, Bertrand, Neb., who made his own grain cleaner for about $300.
"I made the grain cleaner out of both new and used iron, and screen bought at a hardware store. It has a 5-hp. gas engine and a 6-in. dia. 12-ft. long auger. The auger sits parallel with the drum to save space. The screen is sized for shelled corn but could easily be changed to clean other crops or another screen added to get the corn even cleaner," Holscher explains.
Holscher says the cleaner easily keeps up with his 6-in..auger and can be adjusted to run faster. He plans to use it with a newly built 8-in. auger this year.
