Walkabout Mother Bin
Reviews

Here’s what Grain Farmers have to say in Walkabout Mother Bins reviews and testimonials…

No more waiting on trucks

Wilson Farms in Bunker Hill, Indiana grows corn and soybeans. They bought a Walkabout Mother Bin in Fall 2023 because of one of the biggest issues their farm faced, the combines were always waiting for the trucks to get back, even with two semis and two drivers. With the Mother Bin they found their combine ran more efficient hours, didn't have to stop, and the trucks didn't have to wait to get filled up and back on the road. They were able to harvest an extra 4000 bushel of corn each day and it saved them about 10 days of harvest. Jimmy and Morgan Wilson, Wilson Farms, Mother Bin Owner since 2023

Can't wait to check out the turnaround times on the grain tickets...

I love this thing; we had a truck go down, out of our 4, and we’re keeping up with 3 trucks hauling only a few miles to an elevator. Two 12 row corn headers harvesting 182bu/ac corn at 5 mph and haven’t had to wait for a truck. The bin bounces off full at times, but I run a truck in the cycle too, and park that triple axle to the side for the cart to fill while I fill the other two tandem axle trucks. Can’t wait to check out the turn around times on the grain tickets at the end of the day.

Don't Take Our Word For It

Here’s what the farmers have to say…

The Semis Were Full

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.

Efficiency & Logistics

Today’s PTI agronomy tip of the day is: it’s all about efficiency and logistics. We just don’t want the combine sitting in the field. We know we’ve got precious time when we have good weather here at harvest time; we want to keep the combine rolling and this Walkabout Mother Bin has allowed us to have that extra storage so we just don’t get slowed down in the field.

A Small Local Operation

I'm relatively small in the area, so I'm probably one of the least likely people to buy a Mother Bin, but I see it as one of the best decisions I could have made because I run older equipment and I try to do it mostly by myself without any full-time hired help. A lot of times I'm just a one-man operation with a small 30-year-old combine. The field capacity and the ability to keep my combine running is the most important thing.

3 Semis Down in the Field

I was sitting in a combine seat, I had three semis down, and my head mechanic was having a fit. I thought, “What are we doing?” I discovered the Walkabout website and within 24 hours Sara, their Sales Director, was sitting in the combine next to me, getting a look at the farm to see if a Walkabout Mother Bin would work for us, and it did. It’s changed our harvest. I’m super grateful.

Increased Our Operation

We upgraded all of our machinery but with the capacity of the combines we were always waiting on our trucks to turn around. Previously, we waited for trucks to turn around at outdated dryers, causing delays. With the Mother Bin, everything flows smoothly, with one central location for dumping. The turnaround time is quicker, and we can cut more loads per day, even before a hurricane hits. It's a no-brainer.
