  • Internal sweep engagement controls. Direct coupled heavy duty 1-1/4" shaft gearboxes.
  • Reinforced Galvanized Sweep Backshield for one-pass sweep operation.
  • Sump gates ride on UHMW pads for smooth, reliable operation.
  • Galvanized 14 gauge trough with standard reinforcing rib.
  • All Control Rods located inside the U-Trough. Factory installed.
  • Rack and pinion opener for center and intermediate sumps.
  • If the Center Sump becomes obstructed during the first phase of emptying the bin, the Intermediate Sump nearest the Center Sump can be opened by turning the control halfway, providing a “near center” drain point. The remaining Intermediate Sumps can then be opened to uncover the sweep auger.
  • 4:1 or 16:1 (dependent on bin dia.) self-cleaning reduction drive end wheel. High wearing traction strips last 3 times longer than traditional wheel and increase wheel traction by 85%. Wheel backshield works with wheel to leave less grain at bin wall.
  • Wood Hanger Bearings - Bearings are placed at the sumps for easy access. Flightings and bearings can be removed as a unit, with the bearing hangers sliding on ledges in the trough. Bearings are self-seating.
  • Compare the number of Sudenga intermediate sumps to those on other units! More sumps = reliable unloading of bin. 1/4" thick underbin flight on 2-7/8" shaft (bushed to 1-1/2") for long wearing life.
