The innovative Hutchinson Grain Pump lets you move grain with gentle efficiency and at high capacities. It requires less horsepower than air systems and Hutchinson's en masse (grain-moving-grain) concept causes less damage to grain and needs less maintenance than traditional conveying systems. The secret is Hutchinson's unique Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) paddle, designed to keep your grain flowing gently and evenly from inlet to discharge source. These round, plastic paddles are spaced every 13 inches, taking the place of traditional auger flighting. These paddles are notched to go around corners. Grain Pump owners have found a reduction in grain damage when compared to traditional conveying systems.
