Portable grain pump from Hutchinson/Mayrath for reaching higher and farther

Portable grain pump from Hutchinson/Mayrath for reaching higher and farther

As grain bins have grown in size and diameter there has been a greater need to reach higher and farther, and Hutchinson/Mayrath has introduced its all-new Chain Commander 130 Portable Grain Pump in response. With a tube length of 130 ft., it can easily reach the center of a 120-ft. bunker or the top of grain bins up to 75 ft. in diameter, thanks to an 83-ft. (25.3 m) maximum discharge height. The 12-in. (305 mm) diameter main conveying chamber provides a capacity of 10,000 bu. per hour (270 TPH) using either electric motor or tractor PTO power.

“The Chain Commander 130 is our most versatile conveyor to date as it can be lowered to an overall height of only 13 ft., six in. (4.1 m) for safe transport,” says Mike Williams, sales manager for Hutchinson. “The wide-stance, stable undercarriage, which contributes to its low transport profile, also features a dual-cylinder hydraulic lift system that quickly elevates the 130-ft. unit for either bin or bunker unloading,” he adds, noting that a hydraulic hitch assists in raising and lowering the hitch for transport.

Another feature is the optional remote swivel spout, which is controlled at ground level, for complete control of the grain pile when filling bunkers. The remote control spout also minimizes the need to relocate the conveyor as the bunker is filled.
