The Sukup U-Trough Powersweep combines innovative design and efficient performance to optimize grain unloading processes. This system is tailored to handle high grain capacities efficiently, capable of moving up to 6,000 bushels per hour using gravity unload. This system requires 13 ½ in. floor clearance and features a flexible pivot (double chain sprocket) that allows the sweep to follow the floor’s contour but can be upgraded with a paddle sweep.

The Sukup U-Trough Powersweep is equipped with several features that enhance its functionality and ease of use in grain handling. The U-Trough Powersweep includes rack and pinion openers, making it easier to control and operate. It incorporates intermediate sumps, which facilitate efficient grain flow, as well as an external clutch, which offers the operator the control to unload the grain with gravity before engaging the power sweep. Standard with the U-Trough Powersweep, the auger sweep features a 16-to-1 polyurethane reduction drive wheel, which decreases wheel speed without sacrificing forward movement.

The U-Trough Powersweep is available with a horizontal powerhead and incline. Additionally, the U-Trough Powersweep includes a paddle sweep option which is particularly effective at cleaning the bin thoroughly, ensuring minimal grain is left behind after unloading. With operator safety in mind, the Sukup paddle sweepway provides a zero-entry option to fully clean out your grain bin.

The U-Trough Powersweep is a dependable solution for the efficient and effective management of grain unloading operations.
