Extra-Strong Farm Roof: 5000 lb. Sukup has designed our 15’ - 48’ diameter bins with a rating of 5000 lbs., evenly distributed on peak ring as pure vertical peak load with uniformly distributed roof snow load calculated from 40 psf ground snow zone or 105 mph wind zone by ASCE7-10 (for comparison, this is equivalent to a 12,000 lb. vertical load if based on 30 psf ground snow zone with a 36’ bin). An optional 8000 lb. roof is available on 42’ and 48’ bins. The strength of Sukup roofs starts with high-strength steel. Each roof sheet is then rigidized every 4” to increase the stiffness of the...

Man-Sized Access: Larger Manhole Sukup designed our bin roofs with a larger manhole - an oval opening that measures 20” x 35.5” - making it a comfortable fit for most operators. Fines and water won’t collect in lid! • Allows over 5 ft2 of air exhaust area. • A formed lip and rubber gasket keep rain and snow out of the bin. • The cover fits securely over the lip, preventing any moisture leakage. • Special latches hold the manhole cover firmly in place. The latches can be easily released from the ladder side. • When open, the door lays flat against the roof, eliminating the mess of water and...

If you’re using a continuous flow drying system with a horizontal bottom unload, a top dry system, a recirculator system with a center, vertical unload or a stirring machine with 4 or more down augers, a Sukup Heavy Gauge Drying Bin is the bin you...
