Paddle Type Drill Fill
The 6 by 10-in. elevator has a chain with plastic paddles, which Leys says are more efficient than rubber paddles. A horizontal auger running across the back of the truck feeds into the elevator. "It's a 5-in. auger inside a 6-in. tube to minimize damage to seed. Auger flighting slips out easily for clean-out," says Leys. Both auger and elevator are powered by a single orbit motor.
Fits any truck endgate. Allows you to keep the truck tarped. Has about the same capacity as a 5-in. drill fill auger. Leys custom-builds the elevator for $1,100.
