PECK MFG.Product Spotlight

The Peck model 1003 direct-drive TAD auger is available in lengths from 56 to 71 ft. To decrease maintenance costs, the augers offer direct hookups, which eliminate the gearbox and other drive parts. A short telescoping driveline connects directly to the tractor PTO shaft and to the lower end of the flighting and offers a constant-velocity universal joint for smooth operation at any angle. A reliable hydraulic motor at the upper end of the swinging hopper drives the flighting. A vertical frame hinges 2 ft. ahead of the axle to allow for a greater reach over the bin eaves.

KSI CONVEYORSProduct Spotlight

The KSi 1612 Swingaway Conveyors are designed to outperform conventional augers and conveyors in the speed of material flow, the maximum degree of operation and material handling. The 1612 Swingaway achieves this due to its patented cleated belt. As a result of the cleats, the seed conveyor can move seed more efficiently than conventional conveyors with ability to perform at a 40-degree angle. The cleated belt conveyor handles material gently resulting in very little material damage, according to the company.
