Kondinin Group has inspected and tested silos from most major brands in its latest Research Report.
Kondinin Group engineer and GRDC grain storage expert, Ben White, travelled the country, driving 9000km through every mainland state to visit silo installations on farm from 24 brands.
In all cases the silo installations were less than 18-months old and most had been filled and emptied at least once in that time.
An investment in grain storage can be significant and unlike machinery is typically not liquid, meaning trading up later is not usually an option.
So cutting corners with lower quality products, or products that don’t quite meet current or future requirements should be avoided.
