Grain Auger Features Two Spouts
"I've tested it on my own farm for several years. I know it works," says Iowa farmer Robert Riessen who would like to get in touch with anyone interested in putting his portable high-low grain auger into commercial production.
The vertical grain auger features a low level spout for use with grinder mixers, and a high level top spout for filling wagons or trucks.
' When the farmer wishes to grind some grain, he simply parks his grinder mixer by the bin. He then directs the lower spout to the grinder and starts the auger," explains Riessen. "When the lower spout is swung out (left photo) it aligns with the hole in the tube and grain comes out. When the lower spout is folded back against the grain bin (right photo), the holes no longer align and grain comes out the top spout for loading into trucks or wagons."
