Big grain cleaners match big augersTwo big new rotary screen grain cleaners introduced by Feterl Mfg., Salem, S. Dak., are designed to match capacity of big grain augers.
The largest, a commercial model, re-moves weed seeds, chaff, broken kernels, fines and foreign material from wheat, corn, soybeans and other grains at the rate of 8,000 bu./hr., which is also the rated capacity of Feterl's largest 12 in. by 120 ft. grain auger. It's totally pto-driven and equipped with a 12 ft. long rotary scren drum measuring 48 in. in dia. Retails for $8,750.
Also new from Feterl is the Model 200, rated at 6,400 bu./hr. It's a twin unit, made up of two Model 100 rotary screen cleaning drums (each 96 in. long and 28 in. in dia.) placed side by side. The drums are pto driven; the fines discharge auger can be driven by electric or hydraulic motor. Sells for $5,975.
"The gentle action of the fighting in Feterl-built grain cleaners moves grain through the rotary drums, providing a continuous turning effect to assure that all grain is exposed to the screen where dockage is removed," notes Ron Feterl.
