Farm Bins

All the features of Chief's largest commercial bins in sizes ideal for the farm!

Farm BinsChief bins from Chief Agri have long been used as an integral component of commercial grain management systems. Now, they are available in sizes ideal for use on a small farm, utilizing all the features that have created Chief's reputation for superior strength, durability and ease of installation.

Available in diameters of 15'6" (4.72m) to 49'6" (15.09m) and overall heights of 19' 2" (5.84m) to 82'3" (25.07m), there's a Chief stiffened or unstiffened bin to fit the needs of any farm operation.


Chief Sidewall Packages are Built to Last

Corrugated SteelCorrugated Steel Sidewalls

  • Sidewalls are created from high quality 20 through 8 gauge galvanized steel with tensile strength up to 70 ksi (448 mpa).
  • 4.714" (11.97cm) peak to peak corrugation of sidewalls is 3/4" (1.91cm) wider than those of the closest competition, reducing the chance for material to collect on the inner wall of the farm silo.

W StiffenersChief "W" Stiffeners Lead the Competition in Strength

Designed to provide supplemental strength to the bin walls, the exterior "W" configured stiffeners can bear almost twice the weight as the closest competing stiffeners.

A plate to plate connecting system fuses the stiffener lengths and positively transfers the weight bearing load down the stiffener column of the farm silo.

Farm Anchor SystemAnchor System Provides a Solid Base

By firmly anchoring the stiffeners and sidewalls solidly to the silo foundation, Chief stiffened and unstiffened farm bins provide strong resistance to lateral movement and uplift.

Farm Galvanized CoatingStandard G115 Galvanized Coating Offers Superior Corrosion Resistance

G115 (350 g/m2) galvanized coating is used on all roof panels, sidewall sheets, and stiffeners, providing over 25% more protection than the G90 (275 g/m2) industry standard for grain storage systems.

JS 500 coating is used on all hardware, providing superior protection when compared to standard zinc coating.

Zinc coated 1/2" (1.27cm) and 7/16" (1.11cm) Grade 8 bolts with serrated flange nuts are used to provide maximum strength.

 

Superior Roof Design

V-Rib RoofChief V-Rib Roof

Chief's enhanced roof structure features one of the strongest designs in the industry. All grain bins through 37'-1" (11.30m) diameter eave incorporate a 2-1/2" (6.35cm) rib depth. Grain bins from 42'-0" (12.80m) diameter through 49'-6" (15.09m) diameter have a full 4" (10.16cm) rib depth.

Chief farm bins utilize a roof system that incorporates over 30% more roof ribs than leading competitors for a stronger roof.

Fill hole diameters are now wider for easier grain filling. The roof peak opening for bins up through 37'-0" (11.28m) diameter is a generous 40" (101.6cm). The roof peak opening for bins with a 39'-0" (11.89m) to 50'-0" (15.24m) diameter is 60" (152.40cm)!

J-Rib RoofChief J-Rib Roof

Chief interlocking J-Rib roof is offered as an unstructured or structured design to meet your peak load requirements.

Roof panels that utilize a 2.5" (6.35cm) interlocking J-Rib design provide reduced construction time while maintaining outstanding strength.
