Subject: Seed auger in a hopper trailer



Colby, KS
Has anyone out there permanently mounted a drill-fill auger in a hopper bottom grain trailer for filling planters/drills with seed?

I'm thinking I can build a "seed tender" out of an old single axle 24-26' grain trailer cheaper than buying a dedicated tender, so would appreciate any pictures or ideas along this line.

Thanks

If you are familiar with RFD-TV and the Prairie Farm Report there was show with a guy doing that somewhere in Canada. They had a two hopper trailer and used one for seed and the other for dry fert. They had hydraulic motors on them and operator would just hook up the hoses plumbed off the back of the planter. The planter/seeder had an auger that came down to the ground and the auger on the trailer didn't stick out any wider than the trailer. I don't knowif you can somehow check the archives of that show, but I know watched it a year or so ago.

Magnum trailers, Amenia, ND makes a trailer like that, http://magnumnd.com/trailers.html two hopper trailers dump into a connecting Y pipe so only one discharge, biggest thing is getting a pretty good cleanout, might almost have to make a hopper into the trap opening to get cleaned out well, or deal with it at the end of the year. The Michaels system, http://www.michels.ca/swing-away-grain-hopper.htm type system works good for a trailer with good ground clearance.

Hope the links give you ideas for your project.

Check this tender trailer out if you are looking at a magnum.  Very nice trailer,when I looked one over up close the workmanship was a lot better than the magnum IMHO.

Not sure if you need the height to fill a drill or just something to fill into an auger on an airdrill or seeder with an auger. See lots of these up here in Canada for airdrills/airseeders.

Saw a neat deal at the Greeley farm show that might work for what you're wanting. Dakota trailers makes a little hydraulic auger that stays mounted to the trailer, then swings under the hopper. I can't seem to find this product except in the pictures in this link: http://www.dakotatrailer.com/Optional-Equipment.html You'll hafta scroll through a bit, but you should be able to recognize it when you see it.
