The new Silo Sweep Auger from Guttridge is a robust and reliable machine for the automated emptying of grain silos.

Honey Pot Grain offers an integrated service to local farmers for drying and processing wheat, oil seed rape and malting barley. The facility has a total capacity of 30 000  t and a peak daily intake capacity over the harvest period of 4000  t. Transferring grain is a routine aspect of daily operation, creating a requirement for efficient silo emptying machinery that can safely extract residual grain left in the silo as gravity transfer starts to fail.

The new Silo Sweep Auger from Guttridge is a robust and reliable machine for the automated emptying of grain silos. Galvanised steel construction reduces the risk of product contamination from flaking paint and maximises life in use. The patented, enclosed clutch and motor mechanism delivers high efficiency and reliability, and full length scraper blades ensure an efficient sweep even, as is the case with the Honey Pot Grain site, in the event of an uneven silo floor.
