Conventional Grain Auger

At harvest time, or whenever grain needs to be transferred, the conventional grain auger is right at the centre of everything you do and a slip-up is not an option.

Features and Benefits

Conventional grain augers are well-engineered to keep everything simple, avoid waste. And keep everything flowing.

The double flighting intake has a brass bushing on all conventional auger intake guards. The narrow safety guard and removable clevis hitch improve access to bins with small auger ports. (Well thought through, this includes a storage bracket that holds the clevis hitch when not in use.)

The augers feature several enhancements to serviceability and stability, such as the wider undercarriage, and an expanded list of options.

Several components have been standardized and redesigned to reduce repair and assembly time as well as to facilitate upgrades. The engine mount and levelling systems have also been redesigned to ensure perfect belt tension at any auger position.

The Conventional Grain Auger is very well balanced meaning only one person is required to shift the auger. More than anything, they’re manufactured to operate efficiently and safely even when it’s late, there’s a bit of dust about and tempers can to start to get a little frayed.

We can’t do much about yield, can we can make sure you maximise what you have.

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.
