What products are you referring to? I have not seen anything longer than 30" that was comercially available.

I would like 48" for my S67. I saw a post on Facebook where an older Gleaner was unloading into a Flagship Case combine. He may have had more than a 48" extension. He had rigged up a strap as a support. The strap was somewhat loose when the auger was folded in but was tight when it was folded out.

If I could combine something like that with a hydraulic or electric gate of some sort in the bin to clear the auger out so it was never folded or unfolded full of grain, I think I would be satisfied with the Gleaner auger.
