CONCRETE SILOS...
“The Little David bottom
unloader allows us to put rye in
the silo first, then finish filling with
corn silage while continuing to
feed rye off the bottom. It has
given us fine performance,
requiring little maintenance and
unloading at a very good speed.
We had no trouble with the Little
David in extremely cold tem
perature, even when top
unloaders were frozen."
