Grain handling becomes safer, easier with new products

TAGS: Equipment
What’s new from the shows: Products help you work safer, smarter and more efficiently.

By Farm Progress staff

If you’ve got grain or other products to move, companies are stepping up with even more solutions than what are already available on the market. There are new product offerings in augers and conveyors, with belt conveyors remaining popular due to their gentle handling of specialty grain and seed. If you’re in the market for new conveyors or augers, you might want to add these new products to your list of possibilities to check out before you make your final decision on which product you want to purchase.

There are also products for those putting up new grain storage bins or new grain centers, including grain bin steps, catwalks and related items which help make up an efficient grain handling system. The new products offered emphasize safety when working around the grain center as well, and when discussing safety around the grain center with both employees and family members.

If you’re including grain legs and bucket elevators in your grain center construction project or remodeling, there are also offerings for you to consider. If it has to do with moving or handling grain, companies are constantly coming up with what they believe is a better mousetrap. Many of those better mousetraps were introduced at farm shows recently.

There’s even a product called Fan Jammer that simply stops fan blades from rotating when not in use. Otherwise, wind and air movement may cause them to rotate and shorten the useful life of the internal parts that operate the fan.

Check out all the offerings and contact the companies for more information.
