Skylift Grain Bin Elevator
Man standing inside a corrugated metal elevator that is open from his chest up to ride up the side of a round metal grain bin.

With the push of a button, farmers with arm, leg, or endurance impairments can ride this winch-driven, all-metal Skylift Grain Bin Elevator to the bin roof without climbing. It's reportedly compatible with virtually all bin styles (e.g., flat-bottom, hopper-type) and made to fit any bin size. A complete package consists of a 110-volt winch (covered to protect it from the elements), all installation components and hardware, the safety cage platform, safety grab hooks, and a safety cable with a mechanism so that if the main winch cable should break, the safety cable takes over to stop the cage. Also, one Skylift can serve two close-together, same-height bins via metal walkway accessory.
