Plastic-moulded hoppers auger well for emptying

TWO Canadian-built auger intake hoppers are being imported by Notts-based John Pinder Machinery Sales.

The base model, badged Standard Flex, measures 118 x 62 x 100cm (47 x 25 x 40in). Its triangular profile is said to make the hopper "virtually self-emptying".

Measuring 125cm (50in) in diameter and 48cm (19in) high, the Big Daddy hopper has a circular profile.

Both hoppers are plastic-moulded, are supplied with fixing straps and can be used with augers up to 200mm (8in) in diameter. Prices are £79 and £125, respectively (01636-636310).
