Just to update this thread.
Friend installed this Gatco system in a couple Westeel 1805s.
He has bin heaters and temp cables on them also.
He says this system moves more air than rockets in his other 1805 bins and with the supplemental heat according to the temp readings he is getting from the cables the heat is way more even than the bins with rockets.
As far as speed of drying he isn't sure just yet.

Thanks for the update. Nice to hear from actual experience.

With fans and the entire system installed was only 14000. The fans were 6000. Have not done any other harvesting yet, but have looked at a way to add heat to the system. May not need it if the snow does not melt.
Any update on how the Gatco cross flow aeration worked? I bought a couple 10000 bushel hopper bins and am wondering if the gatco cross flow aeration is any better than a Rocket. Price is like 2x to get the gatco.

I’m also curious what results people are experiencing?

There must be somebody who’s got feedback on this?
