Sampling from without

NOTTS-BASED John Pinder Machinery Sales has developed a grain sampler which allows samples to be taken from outside silos.

Fitted externally, the Silo Sampler comprises a steel bracket, plastic tube and a rope operated valve which allows grain to fall into a bucket or sample bag.

When the rope is released, the valve automatically shuts off with the aid of a spring.

Price of the system is £99. (01636-636310)
