While much of the world hit pause on a lot of things last year, there were some things that had to keep going no matter what. Crops still needed to be planted, tended to, and harvested. Which meant that there were farmers who still needed help when they found themselves with broken equipment or not enough space to hold their grain. And of course, that meant FS Construction Services was still hard at work upgrading equipment and building new structures.
Grain Storage for Harvest in a Pinch or a Long Term Plan
This was the case last September, when a client was staring down the coming harvest in need of some extra storage space. Nathan Koester and his team got to work quickly and constructed a 33’ 6-ring Sukup grain bin. This storage bin had a capacity of 15,000 bushels and also featured a 2-down auger, Fastir Stirring Machine, an axial fan and heater, a spreader, and a power sweep. Basically everything needed to prevent rotting, ensure evenly dried grain, and provide just a little bit of certainty in an uncertain time.
The project was finished shortly after we started it and in time for our client to make full use of it during the harvest season. And while life will no doubt continue to be unpredictable, we are always thankful that we have the opportunity to provide little bits of security and reinforcements when they’re needed.
No matter the circumstances, our clients don’t ever stop, which means neither do we.
