A supplied hand-crank caster-jack allows you to lift the intake hopper with ease, and maneuver the auger intake into position with minimal effort. The jack raises out of the way for transport.
The hopper has a transport stabilizing bar and hitch; both are removable. This allows you to quickly prep your auger for transport without the need to remove the hopper itself. With the bar and hitch removed for operation, the hopper becomes self-leveling. A rubber skirt helps reduce grain spillage.
A continuous velocity joint connects the hopper’s flighting to the main auger’s flighting, allowing the hopper to be powered with no new power source or hydraulic systems. The CV joint has added flighting to increase capacity and aid in grain cleanout, available on the 10" model.
