Drag Conveyors


Grain handlers who are concerned about higher grain standards, and fast, efficient movement of grain with less horsepower should consider the Grain Belt Drag Conveyor advantages:

  • Because grain is moved in a mass, there is very little metal-to-grain contact, therefore breakage is almost nonexistent.
  • The mass movement of grain nearly eliminates separation of materials.
  • Grain Belt conveyors require 50% or less horsepower when compared to a screw conveyor.
  • Eliminates dust and moisture problems because the conveyor is enclosed and sealed.
  • Because of their lower profile, the Grain Belt conveyors will take less space per bushel conveyed.
  • Because the conveyors are made of heavy gauge materials, the user has a dependable, trouble-free machine with an extra long life.
