Backsaver Grain Auger

The Backsaver Auger is one of those pieces of equipment that you’ll wonder how you ever managed without. People who have one say it cuts transfer time in half. That’s a whole extra truck freed-up.

Features and Benefits

Available in 10” and 13” (16” if you need it) The Backsaver Auger cuts the manual work (and guess work) out of grain transfer. And about time, a fair few of you would say. On the practical side, it’s got a wide wheel base, for stability. But that’s only part of the good news. What we think will really appeal is the swing hopper. Yep. No backing up. It’s all controlled from the tractor. That means even a beginner can be trusted with the job. (All they need to do is make sure the lid is off the silo…) Things that set these augers apart include double flighting – to speed things up (and everyone appreciates that time is money). Scissor action lift makes it go higher and lower for storage and better reach You’ve got a wide wheel base and low-geared winch. Plus multiple drive options. The augers also run smoothly on less power and the gear box is positioned so you can get deeper into the bin.

Testimonials

Andy’s view

Wheatstone Farms Ltd is a well-established 500Ha cropping and store stock property based 10 minutes from Tinwald. Andy has chosen to buy his last three augers from FarmChief including, most recently, a 1370 Backsaver: “I wouldn’t have done it if they were no good!” “The brand is awesome and the back-up is brilliant. They even brought us out a part when we broke down on a public holiday.” Andy says the beauty of the Backsaver is that you can just pull up beside it, making unloading easy and improving safety: vital at busy times and at night.

Options

Hydraulic Winch

An hydraulic winch easily lifts the hopper into place for transport. The lever and hydraulic valve are mounted to the main auger tube for easy access. this is optional on 10" and 13" BackSaver models.

Hydraulic Drive Wheels

Each 16104 Farm King auger comes standard with a hydraulically controlled intake hopper. By simply moving the hydraulic lever, the intake hopper can be moved into precise position under hopper bottom and end dump trucks. This is optional on 10" and 13" models.

Hydraulic Hopper Mover

The standard hydraulic hopper mover adds a powerful hydraulic motor to each of the inside wheels on the swing away hopper so the hopper can be positioned easily and with minimal effort. The control lever for the mover is mounted on the intake auger tube for easy access. this is optional on 10" and 13" models.

Auger Steer

The auger steer is designed to make modern augers easier to maneuver. The auger steer assembly is attached to the wheel/spindle hub assembly on the axle frame. Two hydraulic cylinders on either side of the auger frame control the side-to-side wheel motion, controlled by the hydraulic system on the tractor.
