3-Pt Auger Caddy For Unloading Bins
The caddy is used to move the upright unloading auger which is connected to a short length of horizontal auger that clamps onto each bin's unloading tube.
Hundertmark used flat steel, angle iron, and channel iron to build the 4-ft. high, 32-in. wide caddy which quick-taches to his 3-pt. hitch. A yoke and chain binder at the top of the caddy are used to secure the upright auger, and a length of channel iron at the bottom of the caddy keeps the base of the auger from twisting when moving. A short length of auger clamps into the bin unloading tube.
To remove the auger from a bin, Hundertmark positions the caddy under the base and unclamps the horizontal auger from the bin unloading tube. He then chains the upright auger to the yoke and drives to the next bin.
"It eliminates the need to buy an unloading auger for each bin which saved me at least $10,000," says Hundertmark. Contact: FARM SHOW Followup, Norval Hundertmark, 1409 Elmhurst, Humboldt, Iowa 50548 (ph 515 332-1022).
