Center Unload Auger Moves From Bin To Bin
To completely empty the bin, an optional hydraulically-powered sweep auger attaches to the pivot frame. A cap fits over the main tube when the tube's not in use.
Barb Gullickson, promotions manager for the manufacturer, Keho Alta Products, Barons, Alta., notes that the center unload system easily adapts to existing bins with wooden or concrete floors.
An under-floor tube is available for new construction, or for bins with fully perforated floors.
The tube features a sump slide door, positioned about 1¢ ft. from the bin wall, that you can open to empty grain from around the bin door. System also has a safety control valve so auger shuts down if something catches in the flighting.
Flighting and tubes are available to fit different dia. bins. System for a 14-ft. bin, including the tube, flighting, and power head sells for $611. Optional sweep auger sells for $674. Additional tubes sell for $236.
