Grain Aerator Helps Eliminate Hot Spots
If corn or other grain you stored this fall needs aerating to eliminate potential "hot spots" or spoilage, one way to get the job done - without having to move the grain- might be to install a portable "auger tip" aerator from the Falls Tool Company, Iowa Falls, Iowa. Its auger-type tip makes it easy to screw the 6 ft, long unit right into the grain. The portable aerator is 4 in. in dia. and made up of a 3 ft. long perforated section at the bottom end, and a 3 ft. long solid section connected to it. A 12 in. fan, driven by a totally enclosed ball bearing motor (100 watts), pulls air through the grain. Labelled the Model 412. it retails for $79 f.o.b., including the motor and fan. A companion model 610, made without the auger tip for installation via roof chains before filling, sells for $69. The latter model is made of 6 in. dia. pipe and is equipped with a 10 in. fan driven by a 9 watt motor.
