    • The fan will blow most of it out but I'm sure over time it'll build up and we'll need to pull thr floors and sweep it up. We don't have a lot of experience with large floors like that ๐Ÿ˜

      Welker FarmsWelker Farms3 months ago
  • Looking at the floor will the grain not fall through the slits/vents that are in the whole floor area?

  • Love your videos! I've binge watched a ton. I have a friend who has a dairy farm, and watching your videos i've learned a bit about what he talks about. It's kinda driving him nuts cuz in some cases, i've learned more than he knows, so that's cool! I was wondering if you are still using Power Director? I'm currently using it, and i'm seeing some editing in your videos that i'd like to learn to put in mine.. Great channel guys! ohhhh.... and how are you liking the DJI cameras? I've experienced some of the craziness with the gopro you did, and understand the frustration... Keep going! I'll keep watching!

  • Always awesome to see new bins being constructed in this crazy year. On a curious note, why don't they have the door right above the unload? It would save so many headaches in the future. Also I would recommend parking the sweep either above or just behind intermediate sumps. That way when you go to use it your not starting the sweep under a pile of grain. Just my 2 cents of field experience.

    TBarTBar3 months ago
  • There's a mistake in how they were assembled. The door is too far from the side sump. You will not be able to start the bin sweep from the position Leg Arms described, it will take out the u-joint or the gear box. Done it on one of our bins accidentally. I will be very surprised if it works.

    Mike BuschetteMike Buschette3 months ago
    • We are aware of this, unfortunately it wasn't thought out well enough when they were asseming them. We may be fixing that issue soon. Thanks!

      Welker FarmsWelker Farms3 months ago
  • I Wanted to echo some other comments you are definitely going to want the power sweep directly over or slightly behind the intermediate sumps or it will not start. Nice bins!!

  • I thought when you started this project that the bins would be raised up and there would be a funnel on the bottom of each bin; why didn't you opt for that style of bin?

    Art AyersArt Ayers4 months ago
  • Nice

    Jeff MoodyJeff Moody4 months ago
  • If I might, a suggestion: pour a small pad for a step under the steps going up the side of the bin. It doesn't need to be more than the size of a tread on the ladder (maybe a bit larger, but not so much that you have to walk another step to get off it on your way down). Make the top of the pad the same distance lower than the last step as the steps are apart on the ladder -- even if that gives you a much smaller step down to the ground. You won't mind the smaller step down, but just remember "That last step is a Dilly/Douzie" if it is as much different from what the stair tread spacing as it looks now.

  • Ag electrician here, however you decide to feed these bins, plan for the future. Either bring out 2x more than you think you need or prep extra conduits in the ground for future. Had to go back and upgrade a lot of farm operations after only a few years because they didnโ€™t anticipate expansion. Good looking bins!

  • Congrats on these nice bins. On a side note, on the right hand side bin, the sweep will actually have to go all the way around before you guys will be able to open the access door. I wood move the doors right over the unloading tube. It is nice to open the door and make sure everything is fine before you start that sweep.

  • Nick, and Legarms a thought for you to chew on. What about either spreading a driveway of shale or similar (or a concrete one) in line with the auger output area for the coming and goings of your truck's when accessing the bins? A little prep work now is sure to save a boggy mess in the future Love the bins, let's hope you need MANY more in the future for all the good crops you are sure to grow! Tony from Western Australia.

  • Cut the grates out on the unload sumps. Pea pods like to accumulate on them and may also save you a headache if a chunk of frozen grain comes thru.

    Justin MillsJustin Mills4 months ago
  • Great your finally getting some working space for grain. very enjoyable seeing what your doing there. Good luck with making a profit. A couple suggestions and observation of a mistake when the bin was erected. Before you fill the bins each year place the sweep just to the right side of the draw off ( as you look at the center from the wall) so they drain the grain from under the sweep. it will start much easier and give less problems in the long run. Place a grain spreader in the top of the bin to fill the bin level and spread any fines through the bin. the fines is block the air and that is where any spoilage takes place and it would block your center draw off hole, also when we use a spreader we get over 1000 bushel more corn in 30,00 bu bin than when it is not used. The mistake is the entrance doors in the wrong place. They should be right beside the unload augur so the door can be opened when you start the sweep. mush easier access to clean the bin between loads. it is a pain if you have to climb up and down the inside ladder when there is a problem. harder to get things into the bin to work on anything before the bin is empty. You can get an enclosed augur boot ends that the unload augur will feed into with out using a hopper. they reduce spillage because the augur does not throw grain out when flow is slow. and are easier to cover each night while unloading the bin. Finally get a frequency drive for the unload augurs, start at a slow speed and build up speed, the motor has the same amount of power at the slow speed as it does at the high speed but the load is easier because you slowly start moving the grain. again less stress and likely hood of breaking things.

  • How much is one 60 foot bin compared to 2 36 foot bins?

    NoahNoah4 months ago
    • for spring wheat where protein levels determines a big part of the value of the wheat, being able to segregate your crop will increase your income. the difference can amount to over $3/bu. That is the difference between profit and loss in many years. In the future farmers will be paid for baking quality, like falling numbers. this year the SE soft red winter wheat crop had poor falling numbers, millers did not even place a bid for any of it so it has to be fed.

      Daniel HillerDaniel Hiller4 months ago
    • the 36 ft bins are 813 bu per foot of depth, the 60 ft is 2261 bu per ft of grain depth. need to compare cost per bu of the entire system including the loading and unload
