Folding Hopper For Gravity-Flow Wagons
Its "fold-out" feature provides a "flexible foot" of clearance to help you eliminate spills and save time in driving up to the auger to unload. In driving up to the hopper, you can be up to 12 in. from it and not spill a kernel while unloading. Alignment isn't critical since the hopper folds out and under the gravity flow outlet on the wagons. The fold-out hopper, constructed of 20 ga. galvanized steel, weighs 30 lbs. for easy maneuverability and readily adapts to most any auger. It's 34 in. wide and equipped with stabilizing legs to prevent tipping. It can also be used to unload trucks. "The hopper self-cleans very nicely from one grain to another and the only attachment to the auger is a rubber strap which we supply," says Wesley Bruns, inventor and manufacturer. Cost of the hopper, direct from the factory, is $52. For more details, contact: FARM SHOW Followup, May-Wes Mfg., Wesley Bruns, Pres., Gibbon, Minn. 55335 (ph 507 834-6695).
