Canadian grain handling equipment specialist Brandt had its technologically advanced and efficient grain augers out on display at the recent AgQuip field days, including the newest Grainvac 7500HP.

According to Brandt General Sales Manager Arnie Josephson, the auger is designed to use air and vacuum to pull grain into the machine from any type of flat storage whether it be a bunker pile or any flat bottom silo.

"Once in the machine, the auger elevates it into the truck for very fast loading, with no dust to contend with and no shovelling," he says.

The machine, which can load 200 tonnes of grain per hour, requires very low horsepower of just 120hp which allows farmers to use any medium-sized tractors to pull and operate the auger.

In addition to grain augers, the 80-year-old company also manufactures a range of other high quality farm equipment such as grain carts, harrows and even sprayers.

Josephson says the technology Brandt use in their design ensures longer machine lifespans, better efficiency and higher productivity for farmers.

"Everybody wants a trouble free harvest…when you have all this money invested and you’re busy in the field harvesting, the last thing you want is for a problem to occur," he says.

"We can offer a very well-engineered for performance and durability product that’s proven with over 85 years’ experience."
