New 42’ Grain Bin for Growing Farm

Recently we had the opportunity to vastly expand an existing grain storage site by adding a 42’ diameter grain bin, a T20 dryer, and a 5” air system. Additionally, an existing bin was converted to wet storage and we added an auger with an optional bypass kit.

New Grain Bin Gives Certainty Before Harvest

As harvest approached last fall, we installed this 36’ diameter, 7-ring tall Sukup grain bin with a 24,000 bushel capacity. We also added a horizontal power sweep, an axial fan and spreader, and a ladder with a safety cage.

66,000 Bushel Capacity Just in Time

With harvest approaching last year, we constructed two 7-ring, 42’ grain storage bins. Each bin had a 33,000 bushel capacity with a power sweep, centrifugal fan, and an extra tall foundation for better horizontal unload access.

A Bin in Time for Harvest

Last September we worked with a client in need of a major upgrade before harvest really kicked off. We built a 50,000 bushel capacity, 15-ring tall Sukup grain bin complete with 10” power sweep, ceiling fan, roof auger, and outside stairs with a safety rail.

Making a Grain Bin Taller

Last summer our team determined that the simplest solution to a problem was the best when they added three additional rings underneath an existing grain bin to increase its capacity. To account for the extra capacity, they also installed a new fan to increase airflow and grain stability.

Two 42’ Grain Bins Just in Time for Harvest

Last August we constructed a 42’ diameter 8-ring storage bin with a bushel capacity of 37,500 and a 42’ diameter 6-ring drying bin with a bushel capacity of 24,500 just in time for harvest. These bins featured power sweeps, fans, a spreader, a heater, and stairs between them.

A Little Help for a Multi-Generational Farm

We recently had the opportunity to build a new grain bin for a multi-generational farm. This 18,000-bushel bin was 36’ in diameter and 6 rings tall. Additionally, the 28” axial fan, heater, and power sweep make it an efficient drying machine.

Rearranging a Farm

Recently we installed a new 42’ tall, 7-ring grain bin for a client. This bin included two 10hp fans, stairs, and an unload. However, we didn’t just stop there, we also moved two 24’ tall grain bins and added additional rings. We built a new set of stairs between them and added new floors and an unload.

New Grain Systems for the Next Generation

Last summer, we had the chance to help this client out with some upgrades to his grain storage. We outfitted an older system with a 30’ Shivvers drying system, featuring two Blue Flame Fan and Heater combinations, and able to dry up to 10,000 bushels per day. Then we built a 42’ tall grain bin with a 34,000 bushel capacity to act as a cooling bin for whenever the client may need it.
