Walkabout Mother Bin

A Simple Concept

Grain carts load into the mother bin, trucks load out of it, keeping the combine running and harvest progressing at peak efficiency.

Benefits of a Mother Bin

  • The Walkabout Mother Bin 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; or if breakdowns anywhere in the transport, delivery or storage chain.
  • 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.
  • Eliminates the need for a truck to be present to empty the grain cart.
  • Reduces grain cart cycle times. It can be easily moved, even when partially loaded, keeping it in close proximity to the combines.
  • 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.
  • Acts as a surge tank for grain when trucks can’t keep up with combine and grain cart holding capacity.
  • Completely mobile and able to move from field to field as the harvest progresses even when partially filled.
  • Reduces soil compaction by enabling you to use smaller grain carts and tractors, reducing weights being carried across the field.
