The Sukup Commercial Bins were built to satisfy today's massive grain storage needs. More grain means more bushels, and that means bigger bins. We’ve answered the call for more storage with our 135’, 156’, and 165’ Commercial Bins. The 135' was the first ever fully-erected free-span bin to hold more than one million bushels followed by the 156' several years later. The 165’ is currently the largest free span bin in the world. With 1.4 , 2, and 2.25 million bushel capacities respectively, you can maximize your storage space, while minimizing the number of bins.
- 135’, 156’, & 165' Diameter

Sukup Manufacturing has truly developed a zero-entry bin sweep. With our material handlers, particularly our supervisor - he coordinates the entire bin sweeping operation - with him not having to get in and out of that bin. I'm not worried about getting the corn out of the bin it's more keeping the employees safe. Any time we can sweep a bin and not have to get into it that's a lot better.
