Creative solution for a small commodity bay

pipe to reach back of bay

We have a commodity bay on the farm that is too small for a truck to dump into. To solve this problem, we mounted a used cyclone from a silo onto the back wall of the bay and attached some pipe to it.

Now, the truck can blow feed into the bay without it spilling out the front. The feed also falls into a neat cone-shaped pile in the back of the bay.
