A month or so ago, I gave you a little farm update. The guys were demolishing some of the grain bins to make way for the new updated system that will be put in place this summer. Well Saturday phase two went into place moving two grain bins to the neighbor’s farm.
This is the photo of how it looked a month ago while they were removing the first bins. Those bins were so small. They just demolished those.
Phase Two: They took the two bins towards the front and put the bins on skids. They hooked the skids to the tractor and dragged the skid with the bin attached across the field.
They did this at 6am to avoid the traffic on our road. In the distance to the left you can see the farm the bin is traveling to.
Once they crossed the road they went up the field drive.
I jumped into the truck and drove tot he neighbor’s so I could snap a few more pictures. Here is the tractor with the bin attached coming up the road.
Here they are turning into the driveway of the bin’s new home.
Then it was time to go back home and get the second bin.
I couldn’t believe that the whole process took only 50 minutes. It took a lot of time to get the bins lifted and the skids under them but the actual moving only took 50 minutes.
Now here is how the bin system looks now with the bins removed.
