This week saw some significant steps occur on the construction of the replacement grain elevator leg. It is now standing upright, ready for the electrical connections, the installation of the belt/buckets, and the connection of new downspouting.
Here are some pictures from Thursday, when the big crane came to lift the top section into place.
Today, we are feeling more confident that we will be ‘fully operational’ by the time the wheat crop is ready for harvest.
We will haul the old leg components to the scrap yard in Vincennes. But we still have the electric-powered distributor. It was installed up there in 2011, and has some good service life left in it. It is for sale, so if you know if someone needs a replacement 10-hole, 8″ Creamer Metal Products powered distributor, have them contact us.
Have a nice weekend. Make sure that the “Moms” have a great Mothers Day!
