The high tensile steel sidewall sheets are made with a G-90 galvanized coating for strength and durability. The 2-2/3" (968mm) wide by 1/2" (13mm) deep panel curvature is tooled and shaped in-house for easy assembly.
Hopper slopes are available in 60° and 67° in either a 16” or 22” hopper opening. Rounded corners and down-turned sealing edges add safety and promote a weather-tight fit. Rounded, truss-head bolts reduces content bridging. Depending on the tank size, single or dual galvanized X-bracing is used to provide solid support and stability.
AP offers your choice of a 30 degree or 40 degree bin roof to adapt to any application. Roof panels are precision manufactured with die-form tooling to provide consistent quality. Both 30 degree and 40 degree roofs feature reinforcing ribs at each roof seam for added strength and rigidity.
A solid base of galvanized formed legs provides support for the tank’s load and Cumberland feed delivery systems and accessories.
Access is secure with a unique, non-interfering safety rail and fully die-formed sectional side ladder. Ladder rungs are dimpled for better footing in inclement weather.
Feed tanks (6’, 7’, 9’ and 12’) are fitted with 12 ga. steel hopper collars, 30% stronger than the industry standard (14 ga.) collar.
Protection from the weather without capacity loss is the ultimate result of AP's drip lip water deflection system. It's one-of-a-kind design includes roll-formed bottom sheet edges which force water away from the hopper and lower boor area.
Hopper connections are specially die-formed to conform to the shape of the sidewall corrugation. This eliminates corrosion-prone distortion and dimpling often found in other manufacturers’ methods of connection requiring crimping and forced bolt pressure.
Conveniently and safely operate AP's durable polyethylene feed tank lid from the ground. It swings open to a full 180°, lying flat and parallel to the ground from its position below the peak ring (on 7' and larger diameter bins.) Its simplified clamp-band design permits installation in a 360° orientation. The bin lid is available for 30° and 40° roof profiles, and retro-fit packages are available for 20" and 22-1/2" O.D. peak rings.
Loading feed can be rough on the tank’s peak ring. AP feed tank lids feature a reinforced rubber belting bumper and heavy-duty metal clamp band providing a huge strength advantage over other bin lid alternatives.
An internal magnet adds holding power to keep the lid closed, preserving feed quality. Constructed of high tensile strength polyethylene, the lid resists wear and weathering.
The snow guard kit prevents blowing snow from entering the feed tank. It can be easily attached before or after bin assembly.
