Skyway Grain Systems Has a Bucket Elevator for Every Grain Handling Facility

Bucket Elevator

Bucket Elevator

Skyway Grain Systems has been using bucket elevators to anchor grain handling systems since they began to build them 30 years ago. From small one-man operations with a grain leg and a couple of grain bins to major grain handling facilities like the Dreyfus Grain Terminals, Skyway has built their expertise to deliver the right piece of equipment to get the job done efficiently and at a cost you can afford.

Bucket elevators come in a variety of sizes with features that vary from the heavy duty models required for wheat and corn, to the gentle handling models required for softer crops like lentils, peas and pulse crops.

Skyway can supply bucket elevators with a variety of features to fit specific situations.

Available Head Features include:

Available Trunk Features:

Available Boot Features:

In addition to standard grain legs, Skyway can supply specialized models for situations where a commercial-type elevator is required, or a model that will treat your seed in a manner that minimizes seed damage and results in better overall seed grade.

Gentle Seed Bucket Elevators

Gentle seed handling galvanized bucket elevators are designed to prevent damage to delicate crops like lentils, peas and pulse crops. This is accomplished by using slower shaft speeds that result in seed being dropped into the discharge rather than throwing it. Discharge lining options include UHMW, A.R. steel, Urethane, or custom options. The boot on the gentle seed elevator has removable cleanout ends, with optional configurations including cleanout drawer, self-cleaning, and gravity take-up.

If your operation requires a commercial level bucket elevator, Skyway can also supply that.

Commercial Bucket Elevators

Commercial galvanized bucket elevators range in capacity from 10,000 to 40,000 bushels per hour. All of the equipment is CAD designed and CNC produced. Many options and accessories can be added to completely customize your equipment to suit your application.
