Problem is you already had the 2000 bushel bin that was worth $500, and then added 200 bushels for $3000 ($15/bu).

Like others have said, use what you were going to spend on 14' hoppers and put a down payment on 1805's (or bigger ). I've had this argument with myself (is that weird ???) a number of times, and this is what it always boils down to.

Would like to find those $500 flat bottoms Need to put air into 2 bins for peas. Either punch into existing hoppers for $1300 each or buy a whole cone and skid with are for just under $4000. Buying 1606s next but not till winter. Its expensive storage but need them for peas and air. Flat bottom air bins are not fun when you have to rotate crop around during harvest.

14's you can at least pencil out if you need a few small seed / overflow bins.


I seriously do not understand hoppering 19' bins (but lots do.....) that 600 bu of hopper storage is OVER HALF of the price of a complete 1805. plus by the time you take out the doors and replace a couple bent sheets half of that old bin is gone anyways!

A 19’ hopper are about a 1/3 of the price and then you basically have the same capacity as a 1805. I dislike shoveling and if your short of space it’s likely gonna get filled and have to be shoveled out.

But my cost might be less then other places due to the amount of hoppers built in the immediate area.

Then on the other hand.....a 4500bu bin is almost too small now a days. The bin guys tell me the most popular bin they now sell is a 2406. (Just over 10,000bu)

Can you transport a 24 foot bin? Would it be too high for powerlines and wide for road. If so then the resale value on those will drop hard compared to a 1806 which can fetch close to new prices. Atleast with a 19 foot bin you can put on a truck easily enough.

If you’re looking for more storage it would be cheaper to buy some 18-05 on hoppers , than putting hoppers under your 14’ bins. Your 14’ bins you could pull the floors out and pour concrete in them and use for overflow. As others have said a sweep works ok in these bins.

While this is still an informative thread, it’s been 5 years since the question was asked, I bet he’s made a move one way or the other 🙂

Given the last 3 harvests, I wonder if he’s still happy with his choice...

Went with the stealth hoppers with air. Always need small bins for tail ends or seed. While a hopper may not give a return like fertilizer etc. With the need to move and dry grain, they have been as handy as the invention of the wheel. Those flats would have not been efficient in the last 3yrs we have had with wet grain and weather.

The stealths have a little shallower slope than a westeel but grain flows just fine out of them. I think there is a little more steel in them then the westeels. Very happy with them, will use them again when my other flat 14ft bin floors are wore out. I do have a row of 1806s and the 14fts are used for tail ends or wet grain.
