Small grain bins

Postby NonTypicalCPA » Thu Nov 23, 2017 9:50 pm

I'm looking to add a small grain bin for bulk feed and need recommendations. I'm thinking in the 2-4 ton. Should I stick with the traditional galvanized steel, or can I look at the poly units? Any brand recommendations?

I have a square 3 ton steel and really like it. Moved it from one barn to a different one this summer. Carried it on the loader with pallet forks. Gave $1,900 delivered 2 years ago.

My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

I have a couple of these. They hold around 4 ton a piece and work fine. I built a commodity shed and get feed in bulk so I don't use them anymore. If you were close enough, Il'd make you a deal. I think they were $2200 delivered.

That's how mine is made only a little smaller.

I searched Craigslist for a while and found a 4 ton brock cheap, wee painted it and I like it. Chicken houses are big in my area they might have some older ones.

Thanks guys. I've been watching Craigslist too, but with our winter on its way there aren't any being listed other than new poly models. I found one similar to the one pictured above, only it was on an axle so you could take it down the road. It was $3000 new which is more than what I want to invest. I'll keep my eyes posted.
