Harvest is almost here so we must take every minute we have to get these new Westeel bins setup and ready for 2020 crop. Laying underground power is necessary for the fans and unloading systems. Leg Arms worked his magic and re-powered this old Ditch Witch with an older Honda Twin 20 hp engine. Now to see if it'll last long enough to get the job finished!

  • Would you ever consider putting a grain leg in to help consolidate and improve the efficiency of your storage?

    Joe FredetteJoe Fredette3 months ago
    • Probably not. The expense of the leg and moving bins would be huge.

  • Nice set up. I spent time at Minot AF Base and had many farmer friends in the area. You guys use allot of smaller bins. Here is the South we use less bins but much larger. We have two 100K bins and six smaller bins at our grainery. We grow corn, soybeans, wheat and some milo.

  • I have trenched and it’s hard work, harder when you hit a lot of rocks. And some bins out in the middle of nowhere make it very time consuming. I remember I made some remarks about bins a couple of years ago when you were putting peas in the machine shed. I’m glad to see that you’ve built three. No more using machine sheds....

  • don't need to drag around augers if you put up a leg which will fill all 3 4 time faster and unload them faster.

  • So if and when the Big Brutes pack it in and aren't cost effective to repair. How about a big strong Canadian made Versatile (with the bullet proof American Cummins), my personal favourite? (Big Brute respect!) Should do a side by comparison Brute vs Versatile or better head once the borders open, head to Winterpeg and tour the plant.

  • Great work guys in a previous occupation I work with a similar trencher we changed the normal chain for one which took titanium picks as we were cutting through solid rock to drain a school sports field. Great to see your investing in another 25k bin. Keep up the great work and have a bumper harvest Stay Safe

  • Where are you putting your breaker box or boxes? We trench in to the back of the our bins one breaker box services two bins wiring to the front of the bins is in electrical plastic pipe that is bend around the bin (scweed to the bin or concrete) following the circumference of the bin....Main throw switch box chest level for the unload auger right by the door it can be reached from inside the bin or outside for fast emergency shut offs.

  • added almost 75k bushels of bin storage so no need to put product on the ground again. 2020 harvest....we still need more bin space. Here's to the Welkers Farm, may your harvest overflow your storage. If only to see Hollywoods reaction to putting up the ground storage tents again.

  • Nice job as always, that ditch witch is awesome. That one thing I learned growing up on a farm, you create things and build things with what you have. To save money to be spent in better places, like bins. Hoping for a safe harvest starting for you guys in a few weeks. In SE IOWA,we just had a massive storm roll through on Tuesday 80 -100 mph winds alot of grain bin damage and corn fields are flat in areas. Very sad to see this. Your peas look great. Stay safe everyone.

  • I think you adjust the chain by pumping grease into the bar at the digging end of the chain drive and it pushes the bar out to take up the slack in the chain !!

  • 18 to 24"'s . Its amazing to me your power company lets you put it in so shallow. I work for a power company in Alabama and primary underground must be 4' and secondary must be 3' . I hope you put everything in conduit, bc if something was to damage your cable you will be able to just pull out the damaged section and pull in new . I guess the #6 Nick mentioned is copper ?
