Incline Drag Chain Conveyors

Find a Dealer

Incline drag chain conveyors are ideal for conveying grain from pits to legs, underground or overhead... wherever high capacities are required. Drag conveyors feature low-maintenance and low horsepower requirements per bushel compared to an auger. Galvanized construction and multiple inlet/outlet configurations ensure ease of installation and use for years to come.

Choose a conveyor and chain speed based on capacity required. Choosing a larger conveyor running at slower speeds requires less maintenance than smaller conveyors running at faster speeds. Also, capacities can be raised later, if needed. NOTE:  The angle of incline does not significantly alter capacities due to paddle design. Use the capacity figures, below, for all inclines to 45°.
