Horizontal Drag Chain Conveyors

Find a Dealer

Horizontal drag chain conveyors feature low horsepower requirements per bushel compared to an auger. Minimal long term maintenance and durability are characteristics of a drag conveyor. Overhead, on-grade or underground, drag chain conveyors are a great choice.

Choose a conveyor and chain speed based on capacity required. NOTE: 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.
