All you need for high-speed, high-quality grain drying is a GT
recirculating batch grain dryer, a tractor (45-50 HP) for PTO
drive, and propane. Average set-up time is 30 minutes.
1. The Loading Hopper eliminates the need for separate
augers. You can load your dryer directly from your truck or grain
2. One 12" auger on your dryer recirculates and unloads
your grain gently. Low 275 RPM operation keeps the grain column
full for controlled, even drying. Seamless tube and spin-balanced
auger with heavy duty flighting reduce wear and mechanical fatigue.
3. Your dryer's built-in grain sampler collects grain
for moisture testing from the center of the grain column.
4. Your dryer is completely portable for easy transport
anywhere - work, yard, or field. Tires and hitch are standard
components. The top section of the auger removes easily. The loading
hopper folds up for out-of-the-way storage or transport.
5. Centrally located controls on your dryer provide complete
control of the drying process from one location. Additional gauges
or monitors are not needed.
6. Your dryer comes with a round bin design which evenly
distributes heated air for uniform drying of any crop. Hot and
cold air pockets are eliminated. The grain flows smoothly, since
it dries without bridging.
7. A perforated (3/32") inner chamber distributes
heated air evenly through the grain column. Heavy duty formed
skirts provide greater durability.
8. Positive agitator arms keep grain moving downward into
the central auger at a slow, gentle rate of 8 RPM Grain is in
constant motion during the entire drying process. Convex rollers
guide the agitator arms for trouble-free operation.
9. The built-in vaporizer allows accurate, fuel efficient
drydown, even in sub-freezing temperatures. GT's
specifically designed vaporizer "pulls" liquid propane
from the bottom of the tank and converts it to vapor.
10. An efficient stainless steel, ring burner assembly
that keeps drying costs to a minimum, comes as a standard feature
on every GT Dryer. This delivers evenly heated air
to the drying chamber at constant temperatures.
Safe, Accurate Drydown
11. Complete drying control is assured. Once you set your
dryer for a specific maximum grain temperature, the dryer automatically
shuts off when the set temperature is reached - load after load,
even when beginning moisture content varies with each load.
Quality Built, Simple to Service
12. Your dryer comes with a service access door that slides
up and out for monitoring of the agitator drive.
13. Modular access panels on the power frame offer you
quick access to plumbing and electrical controls.
14. A central lube location makes lubrication maintenance
a breeze. One central location provides access to all lubrication
points except for the tumbler shafts.
15. A fan clutch allows you to disengage the fan at any
time. This feature is especially beneficial while loading and
16. A ladder kit you can mount to the outside wall is
part of the standard equipment for your dryer, allowing you handy
access to the top of the machine.
17. Vertical Unloading Head. With this feature on your
dryer, a single quarter-turn of the head baffle redirects the
grain from recirulating to unloading.
18. Horizontal Unloading Head. Simplifies unloading by
eliminating hand-turning of the discharge spout. A flip of the
tractor's hydraulic control lever quickly unloads the dryer. With
the hydraulic power head installed, the dryer has greater clearance
for use under shelter, for out-of-season storage, or for transport.
Electric Motor Side Mount Kit. Converts your dryer from
PTO to electric power. One 25 HP motor is all the power you need.
Adjustable Jacks. Permits easy leveling of your dryer
on uneven surfaces.
Patented Grain Cleaner Attachment. Removes cracked grain,
fines, chaff, and weed seed. Your grain is gently cleaned since
the attachment has no moving parts. After installation, the cleaner
will remove foreign matter as you dry. This inexpensive option
eliminates the expense and trouble of additional cleaning.
Flexible Unloading Spout. Delivers grain where you want
it without spillage. It is ideal for unloading your dryer into
an auger hopper or auger pit.
