The Power Sweep bin sweep from Hutchinson Mfg., Clay Center, Kansas, U.S., has new and refined features that improve unloading ability. A new heavy-duty 7 gauge flight on the 8-inch sweep and unload flight provides extended service life. The back shield height was increased for greater sweep capacity. A new roller-supported slide gate is standard in center and intermediate wells to decrease resistance for quicker opening of slide gates. A standard control lever and pipe kit for simple bin operation also was added, and a new reduction sweep wheel helps reduce drive wheel speed and increase wheel life. The Power Sweep is still completely operated outside of the bin, with external controls and power source.
