Batco’s New 2400 Series Conveyors Offer Gentle-Handling with Increased Capacity

Swift Current, Saskatchewan, February 1st, 2011 – Batco Manufacturing (Batco), a division of Ag Growth International, is introducing its new 2400 Series line of belt conveyors.

Built with the same gentle-handling capability of its predecessors and featuring a 14” tube with a 24” belt, the new 2400 Series offers even greater capacity. “The increased capacity of the 2400 Series over our 2000 Series is approximately 55 per cent,” says Brent Wall, Batco Sales Manager. “Our 2000 Series is rated up to 9,000 bushels per hour whereas the new 2400 Series is rated up to 14,000 bushels per hour.”

Batco’s new 2400 Hydraulic Scissor Lift Conveyors are sure to be recognized as the ideal product for filling bins and temporary storage as well as piling when high-capacity and gentle-handling are paramount. These powerful belt conveyors come in lengths ranging from 65’ to 120’ and feature a number of options, including a SwingAway hopper and PTO or electric drives. Weather guards and Pinch S-Drive are among the standard features offered by this new line of conveyors.

Another new product in the 2400 Series catalogue is Batco’s 2435 Field Loader, which offers versatility for load-out into tractor trailer units, trucks, air seeders and hopper-bottom bins. Additionally, this convenient loader features an extendable and collapsible hopper design to allow for greater ease-of-use and easier transport. This unit also comes complete with electric, gas and hydraulic drive options.

The Batco 2400 Series is rounded-out with the new 2400 PitStop. The 2400 PitStop is a portable, drive-over, grain-receiving pit which allows for fast, convenient unloading of belly-dump trailers, gravity carts and semi trailers. Like all 2400 Series products, this unit offers high-capacity and an easy set-up to make quick work of even the biggest loads. It also offers the choice between hydraulic and electric drive.

Batco’s 2400 Series will be making its debut at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky which runs from February 16th -19th of this year.
