Hi guys looking at purchasing a grain vac to unload a temporary bin was Looking at a rem 2100 and 2700 seems like they have good good reviews but got thinking maybe a Walinga would be gentler on seed beans if a guy decided to use it? I've never been around one and know nothing abt either what's the pros and cons thanks

Have a 2700 and love it, so fast that I've had lots of truckers get surprised when they go to check their gauges as they're loading. Cleanup is nice with the pipe with the slot in it and long handles, Just sweep side to side then add on another hose

farmrboy,
There's a HUGE difference between a REM and a Walinga. A REM uses a fan to create vacuum and the Walinga uses a Positive Displacement Pump to create vacuum AND pressure. The Positive Displacement Pump creates much more vacuum over greater suction distances. Yes; a fan creates a lot of suction, BUT as soon as you get into sucking from 60' away the Walinga will out perform the REM "hands-down", and who are we kidding? Who uses a grain vac with less than 12' or 16' of hose on it??? Now, with respect to which machine is gentler. The REM discharges the grain through an auger. The Walinga does not...you do the math... oh and if you need too; you could hook up a whole bunch of piping and 'blow' product from point A to point B if you needed to. Lets see a REM do that!!!
