Westfield launches drive over hopper

July 22, 2014, Winnipeg, MB - Grain auger and accessories manufacturer Westfield has released the new GULP Drive Over Hopper with an ultra-low profile, allowing for efficient and quick truck unloading for on-farm applications.

The GULP is an ultra-low profile drive over hopper that transports with a 13-inch Westfield swing auger. According to a company news release, it removes the need to re-attach or re-position multiple pieces of equipment when unloading trucks and trailers. The drive over unit hydraulically lowers and swings into position while the one-touch ramp deployment provides easy setup in minutes. Compatible with almost all trucks, this drive over hopper is only 4.5 inches high and features a large catchment area and revolutionary chevron belt to auger transition.

The GULP was officially debuted at Canada's Farm Progress Show this past June, earning the Innovations Award which recognizes achievement in innovative agriculture products and services.
