E-Kay Enterprises introduce two auger attachments

The new E-Kay down spout can easily drops into any size grain bin. With a five-hole pattern, one in the bottom and four around the side, you will no longer have the coning of heavy grain in the center. When the bin is full, an electronic eye sensor sends a signal to a flashing light or horn to warn the operator. Alerts can be customized to suit different needs. With added accessories, it can even shut off grain flow.

Another useful attachment is the no-spill hopper. This hopper can be installed simply with a clamping system for most augers. The hopper will prevent wasted grain on the ground when unloading hopper bottom bins. It is fully adjustable for different bin heights and will help to support the end of your auger. Read more
