Hydraulic Unloading Drive For Grain Bins
"We've eliminated power lines, wiring, electric motors and starters, and all the pulleys and mounts needed to outfit an unloading auger for electric drive," says Wayne Niewold, of Hydra Fold Auger, Inc., manufacturer of a hew hydraulic unloading drive unit. "It's great for handling grain in remote locations without electricity," he points out.
The drive is designed to run off tractor hydraulics of a minimum 13 gpm at 1,000 psi. It features variable speed which can be started, stopped and varied with one valve, helping prevent cracked grain by running the tube, when full, at a slower speed.
The drive unit bolts to the unloading tube with only two bolts. Adjustable brackets for varying lengths of shafts are available and step-up hubs fit either 1 1/4-in. or 1-in. shafts with machined keyways.
"They're easily installed on most any existing unloading auger without removing the bearing and can be plumbed in series with the hydraulic drive on a sweep auger," says Niewold.
