Spot Mixer For Grain Bins
Here's a real labor saver a "Spot Mixer" for grain bins without installed stirrers. The portable unit breaks and mixes up crusted and wet problem areas in grain bins and ends the strain of shoveling the grain around by hand.
Invented by Iowa farmer Frank Salter, the Spot Mixer is manufactured and sold by S & P Mfg., Missouri Valley, Iowa.
It consists of a l/2 hp. electric motor mounted on an aluminum frame. The motor powers a 3 ft. long auger which you can add a two ft. extension to. The auger digs into the corn breaking the crust and mixing the grain. It draws down as far as the Spot Mixer's 14 in. square base plate. Then you pull the auger out or flip the switch that reverses the spin of the auger to back it out.
Weighing 35 lbs. without the augers attached, you carry the Spot Mixer to the top of the bin or flat storage area, pin the augers on and plug the unit in. It runs off 110 volts.
Sells for $380 including the augers. Models with 3/4 hp. motors are also available.
