Yes, and didn‘t it have some gizmo to fill the clamp, and then to unload again?Were they still using the flexi walled silage clamp, I see the structure was still in place. It was put up by the NIAE in 71 when I was there. Filled it then with a tractor and blower rather than buckrake
When I was there it was filled with a tractor and blower fed by a dump box which the trailers tipped into.Yes, and didn‘t it have some gizmo to fill the clamp, and then to unload again?
Me - 1969 - 1971.Ah! Not as old as I thought.
I was 70-72 and certainly remember the building of what was hoped by the designers to be a horizontal tower silo, so you are probably absolutely correct that it had a self feeding discharge system.Me - 1969 - 1971.
I’m not quite sure if it was built in 1970 or 1971, but I seem to remember that in the first season it had a big auger full width of the clamp. Designed to fill it then empty it again. I used to have some photos of it so I’ll have a hunt.
