Brandt Agricultural Products recently unveiled the GrainVac 7500 HP, a fast and simple way for busy grain growers to empty a bin. The GrainVac 7500 HP is capable of moving up to 8,000 bu. of wheat/hr. from a full bin with a straight hose, for example. Maximum grain movement can be achieved with only 120 hp, allowing growers to match the GrainVac 7500 HP with mid-sized tractors. Exclusive cone separator technology uses no moving parts to direct the grain into the auger or air into the fan. No adjustments are needed crop to crop.
The GrainVac 7500 HP is designed for easy, low-cost maintenance with a centrifugal fan design. It features convenient fan access, minimal grease points and easy auger tube access for quick cleanouts.

Grain auger steering
Large grain augers and conveyors are hard to maneuver, but the new Auger Steer makes auger steering and positioning easy.
The Auger Steer, distributed by Central City Scale Inc. and manufactured by Triple Steer Manufacturing Ltd. installs as an add-on kit for axles. It allows the axle and whatever it supports to be fully steered from the tractor cab with a set of steering knuckles activated by a new hydraulic cylinder.
Auger Steer can be installed on either an auger or conveyor with fixed wheels in about an hour. The kit includes a steering knuckle for each wheel. The wheel comes off, a 9-in. knuckle is bolted on, and the wheel is replaced. A small hydraulic cylinder is fitted against the axle and connected to each knuckle. New hoses are extended to the hydraulic remotes at the back of the tractor. Hydraulic pressure enables existing control levers or switches in the cab to turn the wheels left or right.
The Auger Steer comes in sizes and fittings for most makes of augers.

Precision tillage system
Krause introduces the innovative Gladiator precision tillage system for strip-till farming with exclusive ST-PRO row units, available in 12- and 16-row pull-type configurations. Changing from field operation to transport is quick and easy, and the durable, fixed frame design with flip-and-fold toolbar provides a balanced, safe transport — even for 16-row machines. The design allows for easy maintenance and replacement of points or knives without crawling under the machine. The robust frames have the capacity to carry a 1,000-gal. liquid tank and tow an anhydrous tank to accommodate a variety of fertilizer placement options.
The ST-PRO row units are designed for high-residue situations to develop a uniform, residue-free strip with precise, consistent tillage depth control. The inventive Drop-Zone nutrient placement system allows growers to fine-tune their fertilizer placement, independent of the tillage depth, without grinding and re-welding fertilizer tubes.
