Farm King BackSaver Augers are practical, economical and dependable.
That dependability has been a benchmark of Farm King Backsaver Augers for many decades. Auger tubing sizes are available in 10″ or 13″ diameters and lengths ranging from 50 to 95 feet. The 43-1/2″ x 60″ intake hopper invites large quantities of grain to be quickly moved up the auger and into the bin.
The self-leveling hopper on the swing-away auger will remain level regardless of auger height. The unique design allows the intake hopper to be loaded on uneven terrain. Increased flexibility relieves the hopper of unnecessary down pressure on all hopper parts.
The swing-away auger can be positioned on the right side or left side of the auger, adding flexibility for yards with limited space or restricted access. An optional power mover uses two hydraulic motors that move the swing-away auger, limiting the physical labor required.
Powered by a heavy-duty hydraulic cylinder (two on model 16104, shown), the unique scissor lift undercarriage is capable of holding the auger at a 44° angle when fully extended. With the cylinders completely compressed, the auger angle changes to 5° in transport mode.
Using the auger-mounted hydraulic controls, the swing away auger can be lifted into position for transport and the hopper can be moved back and forth. This system removes most of the physical labor that was once required during grain handling
These models feature two internal gearboxes for the intake auger assembly. Easy to maintain and service, these gearboxes do not restrict auger capacity.
The scissor lift undercarriage, exclusive to Farm King Backsaver Augers, requires less hydraulic pressure to raise and lower the auger. The wide undercarriage is stable and solid while still meeting transport requirements. Once positioned, a shut-off valve on the underside of the auger tube limits the circulation of the hydraulics so the auger will maintain its height.
