Sukup Medium-Duty Hoppers are the economical choice for smaller operations. These bins are ideal for a wet holding tank to feed your Sukup grain dryer and may be used to store cool dry grain for an extended period of time. Medium duty hoppers use the same quality sidewall and roof sheets as our farm bins. May be mounted on super structure for loading semis.

  • Round head bolts on hopper portion minimize grain build-up
  • Rack and pinion opener comes standard on all Medium-Duty Hopper Bins

Roof Features

  • 12'-21' standard roof peak load rating is 5,000 lbs, evenly distributed on peak ring as pure vertical load with uniformly distributed roof snow load calculated from 40 psf ground snow zone or 105 mph wind zone as defined by ASCE7-10 Code
  • Rigidized roof panel with 3" ribs that serve as rafters, strengthening the roof sheets
  • Continuous eave clip provides a strong roof-to-sidewall connection

  • 20" x 35.5" oval manhole opening is a comfortable fit for most operators
  • Manhole cover is held securely in place by special latches; when open, the lid lays flat against the roof, eliminating the mess of water and soggy bees wings that can accumulate
