Sump Saver consists of rotating clearing fingers, measuring half an inch, which are positioned on a central axis. This axis is then mounted onto a robust steel frame. The Sump Saver can be placed either next to the center sump or directly over the bin auger intake on the floor. The heavy duty machine is equipped with hydraulic hoses, which can be laid on the bin floor and connected to a fitting on the side of the bin. In case of any grain flow issues, simply attach the exterior hoses to your tractor’s hydraulic system.
For many years, the farming industry has been dealing with ongoing problems and fatalities related to grain bins. When crops are not fully mature, and when there is excess moisture and high levels of humidity, grain bins can become blocked, leading to extremely dangerous conditions. Each year, there are tragic accidents involving grain bins that start from a plugged sump, resulting in devastating consequences for families. To resolve this issue, farmers often have to spend a significant amount of money to remove the grain by either unplugging or cutting holes in the bins. Keep your grain bin unload in operation with a Sump Saver
“The Sump Saver was relatively easy to install this summer with clear instructions accompanied with pictures. Our first season using the Sump Saver we were lucky and didn’t have any issues with grain flow. The unit was easy to remove and clear way for the power sweep. Definitely gave us the confidence moving forward we won’t have to deal with plugged soybeans bins.”– Farmer/Youtube Influencer iowANFarmer
What drives the Sump Saver?
A hydraulic motor that is capable of producing 6000 inch pounds of torque drives the Sump Saver. The motor can be driven in forward and reverse giving operators many chances to overcome obstacles.
Where are the hydraulic hoses at when the unit is hooked up?
The hoses lie on the floor and run from the unit to the edge of the bin. If there is a power sweep in the bin, the hoses are laid behind it.
How do I get the hoses into the bin?
The bin wall is used as a bulkhead. A J.I.C. fitting is used and the hoses have 90% fitting on both the inside and outside of the bin wall allowing the hoses to hang neatly against the wall. (All hoses and fittings needed to install and run the Sump Saver are provided)
How do I get the hoses out of the way when cleaning the bin?
The motor is equipped with short hoses and quick couplers allowing you to unsnap the supply hoses for storage.
Where are the hydraulic hoses stored when unloading the bin or running the sweep auger?
A bracket is provided on the bin wall (inside & outside) that is used to quickly and neatly store hoses when unhooked from the Sump Saver.
When do I run the Sump Saver?
We recommend that the Sump Saver be run when grain flow slows. This deals with obstructions as they approach the grain sump. Continue to run the unit until you no longer see damaged grain and grain is flowing freely.
