    Grain Handler has been a leading manufacturer of grain handling equipment for over 25 years, the primary product being the “Continuous Mix-Flow Dryers”. The Grain Handler and its energy maximizing dryers are capable of drying virtually any type of grain that needs to be dried. Grain Handler owners consistently see higher quality grain, an increased test weight grain, and a lower energy cost per bushel.

  • Bucket Elevators

    Bucket elevators are available to vertically move bulk grain material.

    Part of your project might include bucket elevators or legs. These structures convey the corn to a desired location. To the dryer and back to be taken to storage or perhaps to a wet holding bin until the crop can be moved to the dryer. Perhaps straight into your storage bin to await unloading later in the year. Bucket elevators can move your crop quickly and efficiently. Briney Brothers can supply you with a number of vendors to meet your demands. Sukup, Riley Equipment, MFS/York, GSI - and do not forget the support structure. Union Iron and Brownie Systems support towers eliminate the need for guy cables and allow you to have service deck areas with plenty of room for maintenance.

    Rapat, Schlagel, and GSI distributors direct your crop to the proper site from the legs.

    As production increases and your system grows you need the right equipment to move your grain.

    Ask Briney Brothers to help design and build your system from below ground and up. We use towers from Brownie Systems, a division of Global Industries and Union Iron. We also use elevators from Sukup, MFS York, Riley Equipment, and GSI. All equipment that will meet your operational goals.

  • Grain Pumps and Double Run Conveyors

    The compact design enables smooth, quiet operation and requires minimum maintenance. Double Run Conveyors or “grain pumps” cause less grain damage than a portable auger. They will move material into and out of grain storage structures, vehicles, and dryers. Double Run conveyors can replace a roof auger, transfer auger, dryer take-away auger, and even a permanently installed transport auger. Double Run conveyors come in 6″, 8″, 10″ and 12″ - with capacities of 2000 bushell per hour to 10,000 bushell per hour of dry corn.

  • Dump Pits

    Drive Over Dump Pits are the way to get you back to the field – save time, labor and equipment costs. The conveyor system and/or dump hopper you choose will be a major asset in handling future production possibilities. Briney Brothers can design and build the dump pit that suits your operation.

    The DumPits system by Lowry Manufacturing is an efficient way to get your crops into storage – One of Lowry's systems is able to receive 1000 bushel of corn from a hopper bottom semi in about 2 minutes. You choose the capacity that is right for your operation now and for your future production growth. Call or email Briney Brothers if you have question about how a dump pit could make your job more efficient.

    Other options to efficient unloading is the Sukup Drive-Over Hopper for permanent installation, or the Sukup Moveable Model S7000.

    There are multiple options for your operation and Briney Brothers will be happy to help you find the right solution.

  • Unloading Equipment

    Sukup Sweepway™

    Sukup Sweepway™ is the ultimate unloading system.

    • The unloading sweep is permanently installed in the bin for easy operation. No heavy sweep and motor to carry in and out.
    • The Sweepway™ saves time and labor. There is no need to enter the bin; the Sweepway™ advances into the grain, removing it without back-breaking scooping.
    • Special design prevents opening the intermediate sumps without opening the center sump to protect the sidewalls from uneven unloading.
    • Split backboard on units larger than 60′ reduces sidewall stress during unloading.
    • Intermediate sumps are welded to the unload tube at the factory, so there is no assembly necessary.
    • Number of intermediate sumps is predetermined based upon bin diameter, up to six sumps are used.
