The swing hopper is the key to successful and speedy truck unloading. Twin 7-inch diameter pan augers move grain quickly from the truck's discharge into the 14-inch diameter swing auger.
The backbone of the truck unloading auger, the 14-inch diameter transition auger delivers grain to the pivot point over the base of the main auger. The pivot point is the 14-inch diameter swing auger unit, which provides positive positioning while aligning the swing hopper, and also allows the hopper to fold into its travel position.
Complete control is provided through the hydraulic control valve console, located midway down on the swing auger tube. The operator has excellent visibility and control when positioning the swing hopper under a moving or stationary chute.
The swing hopper and auger are easily winched up into transport position with this cable/pulley system. Transport chains are deployed once the hopper is in position. Cable tension is then released for transport.
