I have an older Brandt that is just like the Westfield except the Brandt has a hydraulic lift cylinder. My Westfield had collapsed when I bought it - the farmer said the wife forgot to empty it when moving to another field. I rebuilt the hinge about like the original, it needs to be stronger.
I bought the Brandt used/abused also, without the hydraulic motor or down spout - I need to get those rounded up. I robbed the Westfield to get the Brandt running while I rebuild the Westfield.
I think I have pictures of the diverter valve setups published but not linked. I can link those if anyone wants to see how I did it.
I currently can fill a 41ft Crustbuster drill in probably less than 15 minutes with one move; it is almost "too" fast to work comfortably. I plan to reinvent the bottom section for the Brandt and mount it to a Grainovator auger wagon that had the bottom auger and gearbox gone when I purchased it.
