We have a 48’ 55,000 bushel bin that will not unload. The corn was in good condition until it quit running out completely. It has a power sweep with a bunch of intermediate sumps, it won’t run out any of those either anymore. I’d guess there is 35,000 bushels left inside. It’s a Sukup bin, dealer is no help, Sukup is no help. We have run the fan for months, it hasn’t helped. We put golf balls in the auger and ran it backwards, that didn’t help. Shocking. What’s everybody’s magic secret that they are dying to pass on? The only thing Sukup suggested was to put a cable in some pvc pipe and let it flop around in the center while being powered by a drill. I’m very skeptical of this doing anything other than wasting a bunch of time on disassembly. I’m ready to just cut some holes in the side, but I don’t know if I’m brave enough. My dad sure doesn’t want to. We have a grain vac if that figures in to anybody’s solutions. Come on, let’s hear it.
