The Uni Tube 1837 Bin Buster field loader has been specifically designed to keep trucks moving, loading them quickly and easily, according to Eagle i Machinery managing director Peter Brunt.

"Designed for speed and efficiency, the Uni Tube 1837 is capable of up to 220 tonnes per hour," Brunt said.

"Our clients have had excellent results with the Uni Tube conveyors. We've sold quite a number over the last two years and found Uni Tube to stand up to their capacity claims, and the build quality is excellent.

"We decided to import Uni Tube after seeing the range of industrial conveyors they manufacture in America."

Uni Tube offers options of being petrol or diesel powered via Kohler engines, electric powered for commercial sites, or hydraulic powered from a tractor. Another new addition to the range this year is stainless steel versions designed for durability and longevity for both grain and fertiliser.

The 1837 has a collapsible canvas hopper to make positioning under silos fast and easy with little manual handling. Uni Tube also offers a range of other hoppers including swing away and drive over versions.

Brunt said Uni Tube offer a full range of products for smaller farmers or large capacity machines for commercial sites and large-scale operations.
