Rated at 10,000 bushels per hour on electric power or tractor power takeoff, the new Chain Commander 130 Portable Grain Pump by Hutchinson/Mayrath can reach out to the center of a 120-foot bunker or dump grain in the top of a 75-foot diameter grain bin.
The new 130 is 130 feet long and sports a 12-inch main conveying chamber that can move grain upwards to 83 feet.
The long, tall 130 can also be lowered to an overall height of 13 and a half feet for safe transport.
The grain handler has a hydraulic assist on its hitch system and dual cylinders for fast, efficient elevation of the 130-foot tube.
The machine also has a remote controlled swivel spout for complete control of the grain pile when filling bunkers.
