To accomplish this goal, we build bins from the heaviest gauge, highest structural strength steel available on the market today. It starts with the selection of steel.

Hog Slat

Most feed bins are built from a mixture of steel grades. The sidewall sheets and legs are manufactured from Grade 50 structural steel (50,000 psi) while the other components are produced using a commercial grade type B steel (33,000 psi) The entire Hog Slat bin is manufactured using only Grade 55 Structural Steel with a superior strength of 55,000 psi.

Hog Slat Bin

We use stronger steel in the smallest part of our bin than the competition does in their most important critical components.

We didn’t stop there.

We also spec’ed heavier gauges of steel in every part of the bins. From thicker bottom cone sheets to resist dents from hammers to bin collars over four gauges thicker than competitive brands.

Our state-of-the-art, in-house manufacturing allows us to produce heavier, stronger products with precision for ease of assembly and proper fit along with features to design protect both the operator and the stored feed.

Hog Slat WeatherGuard

Improved WeatherEdge™ design directs water away from the hopper, rounded trapezoid ladder rungs for secure footing and a spring loaded lid that folds flat to protect it from damage.

Hog Slat WarrantyWe are so confident in the quality of bins that we offer - the result is the industry’s best warranty, an extended FIVE-YEAR warranty.

One of the most important features is the local assembly, delivery and service provided by our store network. Local stores selling directly to the end-user, eliminating cost and adding value.

Longer-lasting bins, better warranty and local service.
