Major Improvement For Cross Auger

Wheatheart’s new SA Flex swing away auger has an elbow in the middle so you can move it into position after the truck is parked. And you can unload both augers on a 54-foot grain trailer without moving the truck, as stated in the company brochure.

“It is easily operated by one person,” the brochure adds. This is good news for anyone who has tried, on their own, to position an auger hopper under a semi-trailer without getting in and out of the cab at least twice.

SA Flex, as the swing away auger is called, has hydraulic power at the joint and hydraulic-powered wheels on the hopper. It can extend to 15 feet.

SA Flex augers are available in 13-inch tube diameter, with main auger lengths of 71, 81 and 91 feet.
