Model 4012 Low-Profile Conveyors

Find a Dealer

Sudenga Industries pioneered this unique concept in drag chain conveyors. These innovative low-profile conveyors feature big capacity with the advantage of minimized installation cost and the long term durability of drag conveyors. The Model 2610 is rated at capacities to 7500 BPH and the Model 4012 will handle up to 10,000 BPH (corn). The Model 2610 only requires a trench that is 16 inches deep, while the 4012 require a trench 18 inches in depth. Great in retrofit applications where space or ground water is an issue. Originally developed to feed bucket elevators from shallow drive over pits, thousands of applications later these units can be found loading out to semi-trailers or returning grain to the leg from a low clearance loadout. Interchangeable hopper gratings and bridge sections allow for custom intake configurations.
