Sick of shovelling out grain bins or having trouble getting grain out of tricky places? This clever machine could provide just the answer.

Imported from Canada by Ryetec, the GrainVAC comes in two sizes: the 2700 machine can transfer up to 160t/hr and the larger 3700 can transfer up to 280t/hr. Grain can be moved through a 15m-long hose and then via a conveyer to a trailer with sides up to height of 4.5m. It comes with 15m of hose, but can be specced to come with more. Working at full capacity, the larger machine will need 180hp to drive it. Prices start at £17,000 for the 2700 model.
