Our elevators are sturdy machines designed to help you efficiently move bales or corn. Powered by an electric motor, they can move up to twenty-four 48″ bales per minute. The paddles are made from 12 and 16 gauge reinforced steel to eliminate bending and are also non-tilt to keep bales from tumbling backwards even at the 50 degree maximum elevation.
We use #62 steel detachable chains that ride on wooden glides, lengthening lifetime and allowing for quieter operation. The hand crank used to raise the elevator has a built-in, self-activating friction brake assuring safer operation by eliminating the danger of the winch handle slipping out of your hand and out of control. For economical purposes, we offer a light weight chain, #55, for the shorter model.
When unloading corn you can insert extra paddles at 24″ to 48″ apart to speed unloading time. Zimmerman Elevators will design accordingly. A discharge chute which funnels corn right into your bin is also available.
