  • I realize what the logic is behind buying these, but if it all works out how long is the pay back, when will your investment start making money for you, along with the freedom they give you? Did you figure out how many nuts and bolts each bin requires? Guess the right number, win a prize!

  • Hi guys, just read something interesting that may benefit your crops. Scattering rock dust on crops could soak up billions of tons of CO2 A new study out of the University of Sheffield makes a case for a geoengineering technique known as enhanced rock weathering, which essentially involves supercharging soil’s ability to remove CO2 from the atmosphere by sprinkling it with rock dust.

  • I am not sure just what to say as I feel dyslexic when I try to explain what I am thinking... It takes a while to have the actual money to buy bins so that those savings can occur and by the time they do, you have grown so much in size that those bins are just making up for the times that you needed them and now these will just get you through and you could use two more... not sure why the cost of food is so low at the farm and so high at the store but am sure that would start a whole new controversy and thats not what we need. I see a definite need for more trucks with the upgraded trailers. Even some old fuel squeezing cab overs with some air conditioning would work like old JB Hunt sells thousands of. They get a half million miles on them and no one wants those miserable things that can't get out of their own path. I have been watching some of the trucking channels and it is ridiculous how bad the younger generation is at driving and they want more power, loud jake brakes and chrome... none of it will really make you money but I can see why a person hesitates to just buy a truck and try and get through a season with it. If it were off highway maybe as tires could go till they blow and doors and fenders are optional... please don't wear out brakes needlessly as going near the dump site you will need to stop as you get close. They would ask us to just use the trailer brakes as much as possible as the truck brakes are so expensive. We cringed and did as they asked till a truck would get wrecked. Sad times

  • Can someone help me with the following questions? 1. I hear a lot about bin related accidents, sometimes even leading up to death. How are these bins so dangerous? 2. Do these bins just store or also dry crops? Or is there a difference between storage and dryer bins? 3. How do you load/unload these bins? I assume loading is done from the top down, but how do you remove crops? All I've seen is the door. Thanks in advance.

    • Deaths have occurred by entering the bins with overhanging columns of grain. They can collapse and suffocate the person. These have aeration floors which cool and dry the grain. Both have unloading augers under the dry floor

  • Scott and Nick I think that you will love those Westeal bins. We have 2, wish that we had more. Our Westeals are 10k, I really love their doors, no tools need to close or open them. No air leaks. When you run your fans, I would recommend that you open the lid 2 to 4 links of the chain. If you do not open the lid to let the heat & moisture out above the vents, it runs down the side wall. Enjoy your Westeals! I know that I do. Hello from north east Montana. Opheim.

    • Hey thanks for the advice and may you have a huge crop this year!
