Q?

How high is the hopper off the ground?

2 feet of clearance. A conveyor auger will fit under nicely.

How do I anchor them?

There are four anchor points on the hopper and we suggest using chains and turnbukles poured into concrete at the four points, or anchored to screwed in dead man anchors.

Q?

Can I use my old concrete pad from the bin?

A.

Usually not, we suggest gravel pad or concrete thick enough for the amount of storage going on it.

Q?

How do I measure by bin for a retro hopper?

Best to call us for exact measuring but we will need to know the circumference measured above the door in the valley of the rib, we also need to know center to center of the bolts, the height of the sheets, and the number of bolt holes around the bin.

Q?

What do the hoppers fit?

We can build a hopper to fit almost anything. The most common sizes are 18', 21', and 24'. We have also built 19'and 12'.
