Locate High End Grain Augers in Australia from Auger Manufacturers
Considering how many thousands of years mankind has been farming grains to feed ourselves, it’s amazing that the grain auger is less than a hundred years old. Based on a rotating helix in a tube, it wasn’t until the widespread use of the combustion engine in farm equipment and precision manufacturing in Canada was well underway that the grain auger came to be. Invented by Peter Pakosh in the 1940s, but originally rejected by manufacturers, the grain auger is now a standard on farms around the world.
With decades of experience and some of the largest farms in the world, it’s little wonder that Canadian grain auger manufacturers like Farm King still reign supreme. The quality and construction techniques used by the manufacturers are unparalleled, and the designs remain consistently on the cutting edge. The reliable construction also means that these machines last decades – it’s not uncommon to see a grain auger that was manufactured in the 1980s still in active duty today.
Versatile Machines for All Your Needs
The simple design at the core has nevertheless opened multiple variations on the theme. While in essence, all grain augers in Australia perform the same function, the specific differences mean that each given design is better for a particular task.
Pencil Augers – These augers are part of the family of utility augers and feature a tube that is 4” to 6” in diameter. They feature adaptable components to suit a variety of purposes and make good general augers for moving from a vehicle or bin. A spider cage is included as standard to protect intake flighting and belting.
Conventional Augers – You’ll find these machines to be sturdier and generally longer than utility augers, with diameter from 8 inch to 13 inch, and lengths from 36ft to 61ft. They move large quantities as a grain bin auger and feature robust materials and construction. Despite the increased size and heft, these augers are still quite easy to manoeuvre when using the included hydraulic mover-kits.
PTO Augers – Also called “backsaver augers”, the PTO auger is a powerful and impressive machine. The sizes range from 10” to 16” with a length of 60’ to 104’. They come with a hydraulic scissor lift to adjust the height rapidly and precisely, so you can move grain from ground level up to 15’ vertically. It is remarkably secure with a safety hydraulic ball valve to keep the auger right where you need it, even in unpredictable pop up storms.
Beyond the basics, augers can be fitted with hydraulic moverkits to make it easier to get them into position and back into storage. Other accessories or modifications are available to customise your machine.
