Nifty Way To Make Transfer Auger
Canadian farmer Murray McMillan made a transfer auger to unload grain from trucks and wagons. He used the loading auger off a Tox-O-Wik grain dryer. It mounts on a set of wheels and has a hydraulic drive that attaches with one bolt.
He used the tires and wheels from a yard cart, mounting them on an axle made out of square tubing that bolts to the auger tube. He had to fashion a housing for the end of the auger to hold the hydraulic motor that's used to auger grain out. The motor was off a piece of equipment no longer being used, so total cost of the con-version was less than $50.
After using the auger to unload grain, it takes only a few minutes to take off the wheels and the drive unit and remount the auger on the dryer.
