Brandt introduced a sensor that mounts on an auger and sends an alert to a wireless pager when the grain pile in a bin or truck reaches the sensor. Called Auger Max, the device offers convenience because a grower using it doesn’t need to climb up a bin or truck to check on the grain level. The pager will beep, vibrate and flash to alert the wearer that the bin is full. The Auger Max communicates wirelessly up to 100 yds.

The battery-operated auger module is equipped with an amber light for operation after dark. It also includes a rear-facing red flashing light that may be used when transporting the auger.

Base list price: $755. For more information, call Brandt at 866/427-2638 or visit www.brandt.ca.
