Here’s the Story
“These are some spiffy units…they put out some really big light,” Greg proclaimed.
He found the first 2 lights that were actually taped together. They were taken for a ride in the buckets to the discharge spout where they were found. They most likely would have taken that trip several times before hitting the discharge.
“I am sure that they spent some time in the boot of the leg for a while because of the amount of debris that was jammed in the cooling fins and between the rubber cover of the battery pack,” he stated.
The third was found in one of the filters that are designed to catch anything that is larger before it comes out of the grain shoot. Here are a couple of pictures showing the bottom or boot area of the leg and what the buckets look like that transfer the grain before they are headed for storage. These belts can process 700 tons of commodity per hour, so it’s not some gentle ride.
“They take a lickin and keep on tickin… like an old Timex watch”
– Greg, GRAIN ELEVATOR OPERATOR
