Conveyors Unverferth Bulk Handling

For the gentlest seed handling, look to the Unverferth lineup of tubular-style conveyors to increase the efficiency of your commodity transfers.  Unverferth conveyors can be mounted to gravity boxes, drills or planters and are also available as a stand-alone portable unit to meet individual needs.

    Box-Mounted

    For seed handling as gentle as kid gloves, look to the Unverferth tubular-style gravity box conveyor. It features an 8" wide cleated belt cupped inside of a 6" steel tube for maximum seed cushioning as it moves from the gravity box to the planter or drill.  Seed is conveyed as quickly as 10 bushels or 12 units per minute, depending on seed type and operating speed. The cupped and cleated design of the belt keeps all of the seed moving quickly and gently. Its steel construction with powder coat finish provides outstanding operating durability and longevity.

    • Universal mounting bracket allows for matching the Unverferth gravity box conveyor to all gravity boxes with door widths ranging from 29 1/2" to 60".
    • The deep-intake sump keeps the conveyor full for optimum speed
    • The easily accessible cleanout door simplifies conveyor cleanup for maintaining varietal and hybrid separation
    • The  high-efficiency orbital motor is mounted near the top of the conveyor for a cleaner operating environment, longer seal life and greater under-hopper clearance
    • Speed is easily adjustable from 0-500 rpm
    • The 16-foot conveyor length and 3-stage telescopic downspout, that extends from 6 to 10 feet, optimizes filling reach and operator convenience
    • An optional electronic on/off kit provides easy use while filling the planter and features magnetic mount for easy access and storage
    • The tube-mounted friction disc winch provides easy vertical adjustment
    • The Unverferth gravity box conveyor tucks securely to the side of the gravity box when not in use for enhanced transport safety and storage space efficiency
    • Box-mountable hydrualic power unit for self-contained use without a tractor and features:
      • Produces 6.5 GPM flow at 2900 p.s.i. of hydraulic flow to easily power your auger
      • 8 (240CC) horsepower Honda engine with electric start and pull-start backup
      • 4.5 gallon reservoir with adjustable relief valve along with combination level indicator/temperature gauge
      • Reservoir features in-line return filter and intake strainer to keep hydraulic system clean
      • Available mounting bracket for universal mounting to gravity boxes

    Drill & Planter Fills

    You'll sleep well this planting season with an Unverferth CCS drill or planter fill. They're the latest innovations from the High IQ line for maximizing planting efficiency for growers with JD CCS planting systems. Bag or bulk seed is easily moved from the ground-level hopper which makes Constantly Climbing Stairs just a distant memory.

    • Cupped and cleated 8-inch belt inside of 6-inch tube gently carries seed to planter or drill compartments
    • Conveniently placed, dual on/off controls and an 8'-telescoping downspout on all models allow for easy, one-person filling of the seedbox from the ground or planter platform
    • Models are available for 1690, 1890 and 1990 drills as well as model 1770, 1790 CCS and DB-Series planters
    • Super-gentle, variable-speed conveyors feature tubular steel construction with powder-coat finish for longer life
    • Moves seed at rates up to 10 bushels per minute for quick filling
    • Two-inch vulcanized paddles are spaced 9 inches apart for carrying large seed volumes at low speeds
    • Conveyor hoppers are fitted with canvas cover for minimizing debris accumulation during planting, transport and storage
    • A clean-out door is standard for easily removing leftover seed when switching varieties
    • Well balanced design allows easy movement into working or transport postion
    • Conveyors for drill models 1690, 1890 and 1990 store across the rear of the drill within its transport height and width, similar to auger models, for enhanced roadway safety

    Portable Conveyors

    It’s belt capacity, not speed that makes moving seed with an Unverferth pull-type tubular-style conveyor both fast and gentle. The 2” vulcanized cleats are spaced 9” apart on the 12” PVC belt inside of an 8" tube for carrying large volumes of seed at low operating speed for minimal seed damage.  Unverferth 8" portable seed conveyors can move up to 34 bushels per minute (2,040 bushels per hour) and are constructed of tubular-steel with powder-coat finish for optimum durability. They feature a heavy-duty steel transport frame, new implement tires and a wide, 8-foot base for extra stability when in a high working position and during towing. Operating height is easily adjusted with a friction-disc winch.

    • Conveyor features field-proven 2” vulcanized cleats spaced 9” apart, providing high-capacity movement at lower speeds for the most gentle seed handling.
    • Hoppers are extra wide for unloading convenience and feature a lower hinged cleanout door for easily removing leftover seed and a protective grating over the intake for enhanced operator safety
    • The hopper design is ideal for unloading bulk seed bags yet versatile enough to also work easily with wagons and bins
    • The hitch features tool-free installation for moving the conveyor from one farm to the next and can be equipped with an optional transport chain for safer transport on roadways
    • Equipped with your choice of orbital hydraulic or electric motor (single or three-phase)
    • Hydraulic operating speed of 350 r.p.m. with 21' model and 230 r.p.m. with 30' and 35' models for the gentlest seed handling
    • Convenient dual lever controls for easily controlling the speed of the hydraulic motor
    • Models are available in 8" x 21', 8" x 30' and 8" x 35' sizes
