GSX Series Grain Shuttles
Drive over hopper – US Patent # D662,856
The GSX Series Grain Shuttle is a portable drive over hopper designed to make unloading grain trailers into a bin quick and easy. Designed for farmers with multiple bin sites, the GSX Series Drive over hopper is quick and easy to transport. The Drive over hopper can be towed behind a tractor or a pickup and quickly lowered to the ground for operation. Spring assisted ramps make set-up and transport a one person operation. The low 7 3/8" deck of the GSX Drive over hopper height means standard, non ag hopper trailers will have plenty of clearance. The 60" long ramps create a gentle slope that any truck can climb over.
The Drive over hopper is meant to save time when un-loading a grain trailer. The 48" long GSX Series Grain Shuttles opening helps to accomplish that. With a 48" hopper opening you can completely open the grain chute door without moving the truck. No more dumping most of the hopper then re-positioning the truck to fully open the door and finish the job. With GSX Series Grain Shuttles you stop the truck, dump the front hopper then move the truck one time to dump the back hopper. When finished, drive away without having to roll or swing hoppers out of the way.
A standard side-dump hopper can be used to dump gravity wagons. There is no need to move the drive over hopper to access the bin fill auger with a wagon.
Two different sizes of GSX Series Grain Shuttles are available. The GSX 100 has a 10" discharge grain auger and two 6" horizontal augers capable of conveying up to 4500 bushels per hour. The GSX 130 has a 13" discharge auger and three 6" horizontal augers capable of conveying up to 9000 bushels per hour. Both sizes of drive over hopper are available with hydraulic or electric motors.
Custom sizes and options are available. If you need a longer discharge auger, higher discharge height or any custom feature give us a call at 641-498-2063. We can build a hopper to suit your needs.
