The Sukup Fastir™ - Simply Dependable, Superior Stirring

Stirring mixes the dried grain at the bottom of the bin with the wetter grain toward the top. This results in a more uniform moisture content. In fact, university tests have shown a less than 1% moisture variation from top to bottom in stirred grain. Stirring also loosens grain, reduces static pressure and increases airflow. This, in turn, means grain dries more quickly and efficiently. Iowa State University tests have found that, by using a stirring machine in wet grain with a powered spreader, airflow is increased by 33%.

The Sukup Fastir™ provides all of the benefits stated above, plus:

web_bullet.jpg (904 bytes) The mechanical reversing process eliminates reversing switches, drive gearboxes, chains and cables.

web_bullet.jpg (904 bytes) Drive mechanism contains few moving parts.

web_bullet.jpg (904 bytes) Angled shields on the carriages allow stirring closer to the wall.

web_bullet.jpg (904 bytes) Carriages are self-cleaning.

web_bullet.jpg (904 bytes) Heavy-duty 4-1/2" crosstube provides maximum strength.

web_bullet.jpg (904 bytes) The Fastir™ Plus combines all of the features of the Fastir™ with a stationary auger along the bin wall.

web_bullet.jpg (904 bytes) The stationary outside auger on the Fastir™ Plus ensures complete stirring around the outside of the bin, where a large portion of the grain is located.

web_bullet.jpg (904 bytes) All down augers are hard faced and carry a two-year warranty.

web_bullet.jpg (904 bytes) Constant pitch augers fill only from the bottom, where the dried grain is located, so they move more dried grain than graduated pitch augers which pick up grain along the full length of the auger.

web_bullet.jpg (904 bytes) Extra down augers may be easily added at any time.

web_bullet.jpg (904 bytes) Track mounts higher in the bin, giving up to 680 bu. of extra storage in a 36' diameter bin.

web_bullet.jpg (904 bytes) Off-set hanger provides better stirring in the center of the bin to break up the concentration of fines over the center sump.
