DE Engineers are the only manufacturer to offer ‘Twin tow’ Field bins. All of our field bins can be towed in tandem because of the steeper discharge auger allowing 2 field bins to be operated and transported with one tractor doubling stored capacity.
New style 63t and 76t field bins are being hooked together to hold in excess of 125t for around $69,000. This is half the cost of a ‘Mother bin’ with sealed segregated storage.
‘Twin tow’ gearbox’s can also be retro-fitted to existing DE Engineers field bins. Many customers have installed the gearboxes to smaller 35t bins that have been left idle in the corner of the paddock because they do not have enough capacity. An older 34t bin with a small auger can fill simultaneously into a larger 63t bin loading trucks offering around 85t
Twin Tow gearboxes and drive lines can be retro fitted to any DE Engineers field bins.
1.Make sure the bins are lined up perfectly straight before lowering to prevent the front auger from hitting rear door frame.
2.Lower tractor speed to idle before engaging dog clutch and make sure slip clutch is set correctly to prevent driveline damage when putting into gear.
3.Always start rear auger first to make room for grain from front bin.
4.Re-tighten all grub screws after the first days running.
To make extending the hitch a one man job, one customer welded stops on to the hitch so the holes line up perfectly. (these are now standard)
