rendering walkabout mother bin portable grain storage trailer

A Walkabout Mother Bin is a huge trailer designed to be used as a portable in-field grain storage trailer. The seven-axle unit has a 4,000 bushel capacity, a 22-inch unloading auger and could load a semi in about two minutes. What else?

  • A Walkabout Mother Bin (WMB) is an innovative and important piece of farm equipment that has the ability to dramatically increase your harvest productivity.
  • The WMB is the missing link between the grain cart and the trucks. Simply put, it’s a portable, in-field grain storage trailer.
  • The WMB allows combines to keep moving in the event of delays in the return of trucks to the field.
  • Trucks come into the field and load straight out of the WMB at the same or faster rate than being loaded by the grain cart.
  • The WMB eliminates the need for a truck to be present to empty the grain cart.
  • The WMB acts as a surge tank for grain when trucks can’t keep up with combine and grain cart holding capacity.
  • The WMB is totally mobile and able to move from field to field as the harvest progresses even when partially filled.
  • The WMB reduces grain cart cycle times. It can be easily moved, even when partly loaded, keeping it in close proximity to the combines.
  • The WMB allows farmers to operate with less help and less equipment by holding 4 to 6 semi loads of grain.* This allows a reduction in trucks and/or employees.
  • The WMB reduces soil compaction by enabling you to use smaller grain carts and tractors, reducing weights being carried across the field.
  • The WMB guarantees the ability to continue or extend harvesting time if:
    • elevators close;
    • the distance from farm or elevator is too far for trucks to keep grain away from combines;
    • problems arise because of slow unloading at the elevator or on-farm storage;
    • breakdowns anywhere in the transport, delivery or storage chain.

* Depending on size of mother bin and semi’s being used.
