The self-leveling hopper on the swing-away auger will remain level regardless of auger height. The unique design allows the intake hopper to be loaded on uneven terrain. Increased flexibility relieves the hopper of unnecessary down pressure on all hopper parts.
Powered by a heavy-duty hydraulic cylinder (two on model 16104, shown), the unique scissor lift undercarriage is capable of holding the auger at a 44° angle when fully extended. With the cylinders completely compressed, the auger angle changes to 5° in transport mode.
Using the auger-mounted hydraulic controls, the swing away auger can be lifted into position for transport and the hopper can be moved back and forth. This system removes most of the physical labor that was once required during grain handling.
A lighting kit, available on 16″ models, provides light where it is needed most when unloading after hours. One light, located on the swing-away auger, provides light to the hopper and truck unloading area. Another light on the end of the auger tube directs light to the auger spout. The high quality, flexible spout is standard.
DUAL SPOOL VALVE
The optional two spool valve allows for hydraulic operation of the intake hopper winch and the hopper mover while only using two remote valves. The hydraulic controls eliminate the need to operate the winch and intake hopper by hand.
