I know of a couple guys with Edge augers. One of the companies owners is from a nearby town. Stupid fast, quieter then a conveyor and holding up well so far. I hope they take a stab at designing a swing auger.

How does the edge mover drive? Steer wheels or drive wheels ? They make a 10”? Looks like they would reach under a 27’ hopper also.

Our meridian reaches the 27’ bins, but had to get a 50’ to do that, which makes it underpowered. Brandt looks like the same.

12 is as small as they make. The steer wheels are the drive wheels and the 42’ has no trouble reaching under the 24’ hoppers. Not sure about 27’

Fine for hopper bins, not sure enough weight on drive wheels in adverse conditions though.
Northern Farmer and kevlar like this.

Ya wondered about those bearings mid flight too. Be a pain to service. Didn't realize just the mover wheels are powered. Can see traction being an issue. Have to put a seat toward the intake end to add weight and drive with the remote haha

No different than a combine unload auger with suspended flighting. Super smooth and no flighting banging the tube

What makes them fast?
Suspended flighting would make it quieter but no faster.
Or this is really fast because a 10 is the biggest load out auger Ive seen before?

Neighbor bought an Edge this winter. Really likes the diesel and that he can start the engine and let it warm up from his phone...or program it to start on its own if it gets too cold similar to a command start. And as Meskie said it is stupid fast loading a b-train at only 12".

A 12" auger has over 30% more area vs a 10".
