Would be awesome to rig up some kind of pump or conveyor to take it up into a silo so ya can tip and reload . That would be nifty!

Might be a few ideas here: http://www.intechnikusa.com/heavy-duty- ... eders.html

hi andy,did you watch the video?,the bin seems to go lower down,going by the blue scania in the background so there must be a conveyour from below the bin up to the hopper in the background,there is another video by someone else at this show SOMEWHERE on youtube,just cant find it,but it shows a lot more of all the layout for they have a crane with a clam-shell bucket loadind/un-loading from 4 of the hoppers,ummmmm nice idea about the belt/hopper,going to take a lot of brass & soldering to make a conveyor,then get it to run,cheers for the link,need to start looking for companys that make plant just to get ideas or pics from,how far out was you location on the map for here? for me if you go by the map i now live in randalstown!!!!!

Hi Nigel, I did indeed, one very smart looking red scania with a full set of wecohe alloys on unit and trailer... hmmmm nice. Would love a look at the other vid if you can find it. Would you be tempted to go for something that would reload your trailer? Think it would be awesome to see. I'll keep looking for links and fire them your way as i find them.

Lol!! i saw that, did you take offense? With me its not too far out to be fair, a couple of miles in it just, if you went by it i now live on a petting-farm/honda scrap yard :). Have you a thread up on here with pics of your wagon?
