Move It Fast
The box-mounted auger is available in 16’ and 14’ lengths and features a 6-inch diameter auger in your choice of heavy-duty, reinforced ABS plastic or 16-gauge steel outer tube. All metal parts are powder coated for maximum corrosion resistance.
The auger design features 180° horizontal pivot, 90° vertical adjustment and 4’ flexible downspout to let you unload exactly where you want, even in tight spaces. An optional telescoping downspout extends from 6’ to 10’ for added reach and 9’ to 14’9” spouts are also available.
Stainless-steel sump and shroud on plastic augers offer increased corrosion resistance. A deep-intake, 12” diameter sump allows for increased material uptake and faster unloading. An added auger tube-mounted winch includes a safety latch for convenient, one-person operation. The winch on 16’ models is equipped with an automatic brake for greater control when operating.
A top-mounted 6-cubic-inch hydraulic motor keeps components cleaner for longer life. Hydraulic requirements of just 6-12 gallons per minute and 1,200 PSI, an operator is able to unload at up to 8 bushels per minute with brush-tip flighting, 10 bushels per minute for plastic and steel flighting and 900 lbs. per minute for fertilizer (based on 500 RPM auger speed).
The adjustable hopper allows easy attachment on many makes/models of boxes. The rubber-cushioned, “flip-over” transport bracket protects the auger and provides faster, safer operation. Two control cords on the end of the spout are designed for convenient manual on/off control. An optional customer-installed electronic on/off control package can be added.
The optional steel flighting is available for steel augers. Heavy-duty steel auger provides general purpose conveying of all non-corrosive bulk materials. Flighting is 5” cupped to carry material closer to the shaft for faster, gentler unloading.
The optional brush-tip flighting is available for steel augers. Meticulous manufacturing process assures closer bristles for faster unloading and seed-saving gentleness. Flighting is 5 ½” diameter. The optional plastic flighting is available for steel augers. Flighting is 5” cupped, carrying material closer to stainless steel shaft for faster gentler unloading of seed. The optional stainless-steel flighting is available for plastic tube augers. Heavy-duty, stainless steel 5” auger with cupped flighting provides a noncorrosive surface, recommend for bulk fertilizer handling. Stainless steel flighting centered in auger tube on lower bearing for maximum life.
To fit your desire needs, adding a 5’6” telescopic, 3-stage downspout extends reach up to 10’ while a 9’ telescopic, 2-stage downspout extends each up to 14’9”. An electronic on/off control package is available for augers with telescopic downspout option. Also offered is a 16’ box-mountable conveyor for the gentlest handling of seed.
The box-mounted Power Pack hydraulic power unit can be added for self-contained use. This produces 6.5 GPM flow at 2900 PSI of hydraulic flow to easily power your auger. A gas engine with standard electric start and pull-start is there for backup. Available mounting bracket for universal mounting to gravity boxes completes the package.
Drill & Planter Fills
Less Time Filling
Unverferth Drill and Planter Fills can fill most seedboxes in ten minutes or less so you spend more time planting and less time filling. It also eliminates the backbreaking chore of lugging heavy seed sacks up the stairs and on and off of the platform. All you have to do is load bag or bulk seed into the ground-level hopper and let the Drill or Planter Fill do the lifting.
Drill and Planter fills are constructed of heavy-duty steel with a powder-coat finish for longer life and utilize a 6-inch vertical-lift auger with a telescoping downspout that allows for easy, one-person filling. Available with the choice of durable, cupped steel, plastic or brush-tip flighting.
Conveniently and securely store across the back of the drill or planter for safe, compact transport. On 18’ models for JD 1790 and DB-Series Planters, fold in half to maintain narrow transport width and safety. Drill Fills for 15- and 20-foot JD Models 1590, 1560 and 750 are center-mounted to accommodate drill length and height.
This auger is powered by a rugged 6-cubic-inch hydraulic motor with a flow rate of 8-12 GPM. Dual on/off control levers on the auger are there for easy filling from the ground or drill platform. An optional control valve package can be added for adjustable hydraulic speeds. For easy removal of leftover seed, the auger is equipped with a clean-out door.
Speed up the handling of all your bulk materials by equipping your truck with the versatile truck unloading auger from Unverferth. It mounts easily on your truck bed gate and makes unloading of seed, feed and fertilizer virtually effortless.
Truck mounted augers unload to the center or side of the truck with its telescopic downspout for added maneuverability. The extendable downspout reaches from 9’ to 14’9” and features a 360-degree rotating elbow to provide a full 25-foot reach. Augers can be equipped with steel or brush-tip flighting.
These augers are powered by 4-cubic-inch hydraulic motor that requires just 6 gallons per minute and 1,200 P.S.I. of pressure. With this motor, the discharge rate for grains is 500 bushel/hr and for fertilizer is 900lbs/min based on 500 RPM auger speed. The weather-resistant remote electronic switch at the end of the spout, combined with a metering door between the truck and hopper, put the operator in control of the flow rate.
For easier operation, truck mounted augers lower into the unloading position with the use of a winch and locks into position with a tool-free over-center latch. For transport, the auger assembly easily folds into a compact transport position and features tool-free detachment from truck with the removal of two pins and cable. All metal parts of the auger are powder-coated for optimum corrosion resistance. In addition, the rubber hopper guard minimizes material bounce and spill.
