All 10-inch and 12-inch swing-away augers from Hutchinson/Mayrath, Clay Center, Kansas, U.S., can now be equipped with the new low-profile hopper option. The new design requires a 101/2-inch clearance between the ground and the top of the hopper. This low-profile feature makes the unit ideally suited to limited space unloading situations without sacrificing capacity, Hutchinson said. The new hopper provides 120 tph (wheat equivalent, 4,500 bph) capacity on 10-inch models and 190 tph (7,000 bph) on 12-inch models.
