Remote control makes silo repair easy, safe
"I got the idea after climbing up and down silo chutes time after time to stop and start the unloader when repairing motors. This new control makes it easy for one man to work on unloaders without extra help and makes the job safer," says Alan Kalina, Lowry, Minn., farmer and manufacturer of the new "Unloader Command" remote control for silo unloaders.
Unloader Command consists of a hand held "trouble light" that's equipped with a stop and start switch. The operator simply carries the light up the chute, trailing the electrical cord behind, and depresses the spring-loaded start button to start the unloader. When pressure is taken off the start button, the unloader stops running automatically. The unloader command, which wires into the existing unloader disconnect, also includes an ampmeter to monitor unloader operation and an automatic motor overload protection circuit to help prevent motor burnout. Once installed it allows push-button stop and start of unloader.
Sells for $395.
