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 HANDLING BUCKET ELEVATORS

Gentle handling galvanized bucket elevators are designed to prevent damage to delicate crops like pulse crops. This is accomplished by using slower belt speeds that result in seed being dropped into the throat of the discharge rather than the being flung out of the bucket against the wall of the bucket elevator head as with normal centrifugal belt speed style bucket elevators. When handling delicate crops you must slow everything down and eliminate high speed impact points.

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.
