Hutchinson Bin Unloading Systems

hutchinsonKlean Sweep… the finishing touch.

The unique back-up shield and torque tube combination adjusts for close floor clearance to maximize bin cleanup. It removes the grain in one or two revolutions, eliminating the need for an electrical swivel connector. A rubber disc wheel follows the bin perimeter on the sweep end, providing a forward movement and preventing sweep flight contact with the floor. An intermediate bearing stabilizes the sweep flight on 30′ (and larger) bins.

The Integrated Unloading System Operated completely from outside the bin.
One motor on the exterior power head operates both unloading auger and bin sweep.

The base unit includes:

  • Center power well and roller supported gate with gear boxes
  • Bin sweep with back-up shield and reduction wheel
  • Under-bin tube & auger
  • Appropriate number of intermediate wells with roller supported gates
  • Special bin wall flange
  • Control Pipe Kit with Lever Opener

Power Heads include Horizontal, 25° Incline or Vertical (shown on back page). Low-Boy power heads are available (in any length between 20′ and 50′) to return grain to a center pit in circular bin arrangements.

All power heads attach with a square stub to make moving from one bin to another more time-efficient.

Entire system operated from outside the bin.
The bin sweep, which remains in the bin at all times, is positioned near intermediate wells before filling. To unload, start the unloading auger with sweep clutch disengaged and open center well gate. After gravity flow stops in the center, open intermediate wells. When grain flow stops, shut off motor and engage sweep via separate clutch control rod. Start motor and the sweep will pull grain to the center well while moving around bin. Our Control Pipe and Lever System enhances the operator’s ability to adjust the wells.
