SOMETIMES IT just takes a few good whacks to keep the feed flowing in the feed bin. The E-Z Binwacker from Easy Automation runs off the direct drive of an auger's anchor bearing while automatically tapping a bin's boot bottom with a rubber mallet two times per second. The tapping keeps feed flowing and reduces bridging and rat holing caused by uneven flow.
The E-Z Binwacker fits 30° and 90° boots and most industry bins. An epoxy coating slows corrosion. Three models are available, depending on the specifications of the bin. Most models have a suggested retail price of $300.
