Time is money.

Nobody makes money when the combine is stopped, waiting for the grain cart to return.

 

The Walkabout Mother Bin is a 4000-BU temporary, in-field storage system designed to keep your grain harvest running at peak efficiency. How? The mother bin sits on the end of the field, the grain cart dumps into it and the trucks load out of it – allowing the grain cart to fully offload into the Mother Bin, always keeping the combine running.

Customer Testimonials

So where the Mother Bin came into play at was when the semis were full and gone we had at least an hour or two hour wait before more trucks came back; we could fill the Mother Bin. Before the Mother Bin we’d have both combines full, all three grain carts full and have to stop and wait for at least an hour, an hour and a half. With the Mother Bin on the edge of the field the grain carts would come up, dump and then go right back out and unload that combine again.

Travis Miller

It was like adding another combine. It really picked up the slack because of the extra surge capacity. We were able to finish fields in the evening after the semis were done loading. If the semis had issues or breakdowns we still didn’t have to shut down the combine because we had extra capacity for storage.

The Mother Bin allowed us to reduce the number of trucks we own and combine more grain faster  because the combines never stop. We farm with less equipment and finish earlier than before and it’s because of the Mother Bin. We run like clockwork.

Building innovative farm equipment for harvest; like father, like son

Building innovative farm equipment for harvest; like father, like son

Turns out, Dave Hedt, president and CEO of Walkabout Mother Bins, is not the only member of his family to build innovative farm equipment for harvest. “Back in the day” his father, Brian, and his uncle Max, built a machine to help Australian farmers “vacuum up” medicago ssp – an annual that’s a close relative of alfalfa and sweet clover. We’ll let Brian tell the story in his own words.
