Subject: Gravity flow wagon as a seed tender?


Central Texas
Anyone use a gravity flow wagon as a seed tender to shuttle CORN seed around?

I am already thinking that it would need to be poly cupped or a brush auger, is one of these superior to the other?

TIA

Thats what we use with a brush auger. Also we got a parker with split tanks so we can have 2 different seed types

I use an M&W Wagon with two compartments and a poly auger.  Hyd driven auger.

I've used a couple of other seed tenders and I like mine.  Mainly the hyd driven auger, and it's big enough to take seed for a whole day.

Edit:  I use if for corn and beans.

I have never seen a tailgate auger on a wagon but it looks like it works fine. Why dont you use it for beans? It looks like everything is very well kept around there.

the tailgate works great. I wanted to have a auger and was looking at it one day it just kinda struck me how well it would work, so I tried it and it acually works better than I thought. I dont raise enough beans to buy bulk but if I did I would for sure use it.

I have the very same auger and I have always had trouble with it bending some at the pivot point when you raise the truck bed up high. I have always thought that if you kep the auger straight it would work fine. Im thinking im gonna have to try iton a wagon.
