Hi my name is Ethan I live in central Indiana and i have a old Hanson silo that I'm restoring and it needs a roof. I was wanting to know if your company does that or not. If so what info would you need from me. Thank you for your help. Thanks Ethan
Ethan- We do install silo roofs. We would need to know what diameter of silo it is and if the top rod is in good shape. Hanson Silo can help with your other silo services such as, leveling, reline, door and chute replacement. We are your one stop silo shop.
I am an Engineer, Aerospace and Electrical, who has spent the past 14 years restoring 2 homes using historical or facsimile products. Inspired by the domes of Italy, my wife and I are looking into building a conservatory with a Hanson dome (probably your medium-sized range). Are your domes suitable for this? Could it be painted with an outdoor metallic paint? I couldn't find a price list on your website. Thank you for your response. John
You can put our dome on your conservatory project. We do not post a price list online, please call 320.664.4171 for pricing. We can put a baked on primer on the roof and you can paint it any color or we could powder coat paint it for you.
Hi, I live on a small family farm in Woodstock, IL--about 60 miles NW of Chicago, 30 miles or so south of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. We have an old silo, built in 1935, that everyone tells us should be torn down. (It hasn't been used for a number of years.) It does, in fact, have pieces or cement and mortar falling from the upper areas from time to time. We've the silo with the idea that we might be able to make it into a carillon tower. I think it's not quite large enough in diameter for a real carillon [which would also be prohibitively expensive], but could work for a recording unit that plays the carillon sounds. We don't want to do anything that would be unsafe, but you seem to be able to repair such structures (as opposed to taking it down). Is there some way we could find out from you if the silo is "savable", and an estimate of how much it would cost to do that? What would you need to be able to give us that information? Please advise. Thank you. Pamela Gerloff P.S. Congratulations on keeping your business going thru 4 generations. Quite a feat in today's world!
Pamela, The best thing to do is take some pictures and email me 1MB pictures, We have a high end projector we can zoom and analyze the cracks with our engineers and silo specialists to see if your silo is salvageable and get a ball park price for Hanson Silo Repair to fix your silo.
Hi, Thinking about using a silo roof for a sun shade dome roof for a park project. I think your Hanson 18' dome roof in galvalum finish would work great.
This sounds like an interesting project. Your best bet is to have your local contractor build the base and the stilts and assemble the roof dome on top of it. The ship in pie shaped pieces and are quite easy to install.
I would like some information on silo roofs for residential purposes. I am an architect/builder and am doing a Dairybarn style home. I will need a top for either a 12, 14, or 16 foot diameter room. I am framing the walls with 2 x 6s that are 12 feet tall. Ballpark pricing for delivery to Richmond Virginia would be helpful. Freedom and Joy, John
John- The roof normally fastens under the top rod around the silo. In your case you would fasten it to the wood substrate
I saw a little of your website tonite. I would like to know the least expensive silo roof you offer for a 20ft diameter concrete silo. A straight peak is ok unless you are tooled up for a round roof and it's less $ because of that. Install location is DeKalb,IL. I'm just trying to estimate the costs for now. What is an $ estimate for shipping to DeKalb? How much does it generally cost to have a work crew install it? Thanks, Greg
We need a new dome for one of our silos which blew off this past winter. what information do you need for a replacement?
I'd need to know the diameter of it.
Can you tell me a little more about your commodity storage units? I am looking for up to 10 outdoor storage bins for a municipalities public works building and need information about your storage bins. We are very PRELIMINARY and just starting the research process of what we want/need. We are looking for bins that are enclosed on three sides and open in the front....need to store at least 300 tons of ice slicer, 300 tons of salt, 100 ton of road base, 50 tons of pea gravel, 100 yards of mulch, 100 yards of woodchips. We would like outlets on the bins. Email is best way to reach me....please give me some thoughts on my needs. Thank you.
We have done a lot of public works junk bins with our precast walls.
I've always been curious about those center hole bottom unload silo unloaders. How do you fill them to get the center hole formed? Has there been any problems with the center hole plugging? I guess you have to put a false floor in the bottom of the silo with a cross conveyor? Jake
Hi Jake good questions. You must have seen our youtube video. The unloader runs backwards when you are filling the silo and packs the feed into the walls. There is a hole forming tube that goes into the silage and the unloader packs around it. None of the Valmetal bottom unloaders Hanson Silo has out have had major hole plugging. We did put in a tunnel and a conveyor to get the feed out of the bottom of the silo. We can retro fit your top unloading or bottom unloading silo to use this high capacity unloader.
Thinking of buying a used valmetal batch mixer. I would also like to look hanson's new valmetal mixers. Can you do a demo at my farm? George Stearns County, MN
George- You came to the right place. Hanson Silo does trade batch mixers and the inventory changes daily. I can check to see what we have for used valmetal vertical tmr mixers. Yes Hanson does do on farm demos of our valmetal mixers and Total Mixed Ration (TMR) mixers.
Hi We have a 30x90 foot sealed Feedstor Silo. It has a Big Jim Butler unloader right now. We would like to know if the Valmetal unloader is manufactured up to 30 feet in size for replacement in our silo.
Valmetal does make their V2000 center hole silo unloader in a 30ft size. Other silo unloader sizes for Hanson Silo's Valmetal V2000 are: 20, 24, 25 for Harvestores, 26 and 30 footers.
I am looking for a new Hanson silo unloader to replace my vandale single cable unloader and I live in Ulen MN and I can't find a dealer close to here.
Yes. I will have our salesman call you shortly. You're probably looking for our Posi-Trac ring drive silo unloader.
I am wondering what Producer Ag Shows you will be at this year, I'd like to come and see your bunker silos and feeding equipment.
We are exhibiting at: MN Milk Producers Show December 8, 2009 in St. Cloud, MN. Nebraska Power Farming Show December 9, 2009 in Lincoln, NE. Dakota Farm Show Vermillion, SD Also the South Dakota Grain and Feed Association (sdgafa.org) in Sioux Falls, SD on December 14-15, 2010. The North Dakota Grain Dealers Association Show in Fargo, ND on Jan 17-18, 2010. The Sioux Falls Farm Show on January 27, 2010 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Iowa Power Farming Show in Des Moines, IA. Feb. 2-4, 2010. Central Plains Dairy Expo in Sioux Falls, SD on March 31- April 1, 2010.
I need to replace my old unloader with the trac wheels because the old silage has holes in it and the wheels don't work. I talken with a person with you at the Des Moines Farm and Machinery show. I'm interested in putting in a rebuilt ring drive in my 18-50 Hanson Stove silo
We can get a ring drive in next week.
need parts for a cd3000 unloader. parts needed, 2 augers,price on impeller housing, price on complete new unloader that fits a 20' diameter silo that can handle haylage and ryelage
I'll give you a call.
Hi I'm looking for concrete cattlebunks. Can you tell me about your cattle bunks?
We have a 14" feed bunk, J bunk shape, that your cattle can eat out of.
we are looking at building a Hanson concrete demolition transfer station and I saw one of your building at the Waseca county highway department I would like to get some size and price info. Troy
Troy- I will have a Hanson Silo Precast Concrete sales representative contact you to discuss your recycling/sanitation demolition transfer project.
I'm looking for a cement containment wash out block to store garbage in and compact with my loader. I've heard them called mafia blocks, coffin block, windsor block. Does hanson make these? John Michael
John- Hanson makes cement panels, 500 pound cement block, concrete picnic tables and bench sets. Hanson has sold precast wall panels for sanitation garbage and recycling centers.
I am looking for a high capacity 2 million bushel plus permanent but temporary grain storage walls in Nebraska and South Dakota. Does Hanson build temporary grain storage in these states through millwrights? Scott Meyer
Bob- Hanson supplies temporary cement wall panel storage for a few millwrights in South Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana and Missouri. We can help you.
What is the strongest bunker shape for wheat storage in Iowa?
The oval shape grain storage bunker is a very popular shape for corn, wheat and soybeans. Hanson is your best choice in Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska and Indiana.
I would like to use your cement panels as a flood protection wall for an alternative to sandbagging around our city well. Sand bags are such a mess we are looking for a better flood protection solution.
We can help you. We have used concrete wall panels for both temporary flood protection, sand bag alternative and permanent landscaped flood barriers.
I am working on a municipal project that requires a series of storage bin (for aggregate, materials to be recycled and other lose materials). We are looking to provide precast/reinforced concrete panels to function as walls in this storage application. Is it possible to utilize that product in a municipal application? If not, is there another product that you might be able to recommend? Also, the project site is located in Atlantic County, NY (near Atlantic City, NJ), I am wondering where the closest distributor might be. Thanks!
A Hanson self supporting Bunker Wall will be your best bet. Hanson's reinforced concrete panels are engineered to 100 lbs per cubic foot. We operate factory direct, we have 5 installation crews and did a Municipal Recycler project in New Jersey last year. It looks like your project will be 80 panels if we go with an 8 lineal foot panel. Our sizes are 12' 8.5' 8' 6' and 5' high. Thanks
I'm wanting to build a 100x400 flat storage. I'm planning on storing corn in it about 500,000 bushel. I was wanting to get a ballpark figure on what something this size would cost using your Hanson concrete bunkers. Thanks
A 100x400 on farm grain bunker would be ideal. You should be able to attain 560,000 bu in a bunker this size. I will send you a quote with prices.
We are in the process of building a storage building in eastern NY state at a paper mill for paper sludge storage and we are interested in determining if you can supply the precast walls for the installation.
Eugene- Hanson Silo has done concrete containment systems in New Jersey before for Recycled scrap metal storage. We could seal up our T walls for your paper sludge. Thank you.
We are looking to build an explosive ordinace range. The walls would need to have a 7 ft wide base that is one foot thick. the wall it self would be one foot thick and 8 ft high. I have a completed drawing of what is wanted but we are open to other suggestions also. thank you for any information you could provide
We are interested in putting in some temporary grain storage for milo sorghum, and are inquiring about your concrete bunkers. Thanks, Richard from Kansas
Richard- our temporary grain storage bunker systems are an ideal choice for grain elevators. Visit our grain reclaim page and look at options there. I will call you back.
I work for a large phosphate and Potash Crop Nutrition Group and am Interested in building covered bunker silos. Storage 200 - 500 tons.
Hanson builds different storage configurations for fertilizer, crop and potash. On sale today.
Interested in building covered bunker silos. Storage 200 - 500 tons
We build the concrete walls and ship them all over North America. We work with a variety of partners when it comes to the multiple covering options on bunkers.
I am thinking of building a buncker and I need to Know what your precast walls cost. 30X60x10or12
Geff- I'll get you some figures. Are you looking to store feedstuffs or grain in your bunker?
Do you offer anaerobic digestion feedstock storage systems with your precast concrete?
We have done NCRS approved projects for digestion systems using our 8'L bunker walls. I'll send you some more information on that.
Do you have engineered containment walls for bio reactors? I need 10 1 million gallon bio reactors for algae.
We are the top choice for engineered containment walls. Our modular systems can be easily expanded to fit your changing needs.
I am looking into building a 34 X 80 Farm Tek hoop barn for hogs, and I was wondering if you make the concrete blocks that can be used as the pony wall for something like this. What sizes do they come in? What is the cost? What else do I need to know? How heavy are these, and does the ground need to be compacted to prevent settling, etc? Thanks
Lisa- we can build a bunker pony wall from 5' up to 12' high. 5' weigh 3,200lbs and the 12'T weigh 12,500lbs. How many linear feet do you want?
Hi, I am interested on you bunker type precast wall for storage. For a project in NYC, I would like to use precast wall for our muck pit.It is a closed square. Height around 5 to 6ft. Can you tell me more about your products. Thanks.
Hanson has both 5 and 6ft walls. They are best of breed. You'll be happy with our containment walls.
I was looking for dimensional drawings for the "T" style containment walls for 8' 6" and 10' 6" high walls. Looking for base width, thickness of wall at top and bottom. Also, if you have drawings showing the rebar layout of the walls would be helpful in evaluation of potential use.
I can get thoes dwg files to you.
We would like a price for a 12' diameter x 8' tall concrete grain silo for a project in Gunnison Colorado. Thanks, Shannon
Ho much do your ten foot bunker walls, the free standing upside down T ones cost? Also how wide are they? Please answer my question via email. Susan
Not much they are great value
I have been researching concrete panels to be used at our Town's recycling facility and I came across your site. I was wondering if you could provide me with some more information about your companies precast concrete bunkers. We are looking to create a wall using concrete panels that would have recycling material being pushed against it. The wall would be 5' high and 60'in lenth. Could you provide me with cost estimate information (including materials and delivery to MA) and any product information that we could look over. Response via email is fine. Thank you
I'll get you information on our concrete recycling panels.
Can you give us information about ( Hanson Silo has engineered concrete panels designed to store commodities with weights up to 130 pounds per cubic foot ) and price idea. Best Regards
I will contact you to discuss the vigorous engineering tests we've done.

Meghan- You'll be very happy with the pricing. Our panels are the best value on the market.
I am looking for a silo pit. Do you make silo pit walls? I currently have an on ground silage pile and looking at a bunker to increase my feed quality and decrease hassle and waste.
We do make silage pit walls. We have several customers in your area and would like to take you to their farm and show you how the silo walls are working for them.
I want to storage about 3000 cub yard of silage. To feed to the beef cattle over a 12 month period. Please quote me your most economical method to do it. I will do the construction and the hauling. Price FOB your works.
We build the longest lasting- lowest cost of ownership system. I'll call you shortly
concrete silage panels or we call them silage pit walls. what size and cost do you have?
Yes. please call us at 320.664.4171
I need a budget price on a circular wall ~ 200' diameter 12' high with an option for 20' high utilizing fabric or equivalent siding material. This project is located in Charleston, WV at the Power Plant. It is located on a gyspum stock out pad. The concrete pad is 17" thick we can attach to. If interested call to discuss for more details. Thanks Brad
Brad- Hansons concrete is the right place for you. Thanks
I am in need of a concrete grain bin for an elevator expansion. #1. is low cost per bushel. #2 is strength and engineering. Thanks, Tim
Hanson is a world leader in concrete temporary flat storage grain bin manufacturing, Hanson offers the strongest and heaviest steel rebar storage tanks in the industry with capacities up to 4 million bushel. Our tank sidewall is precast at the Hanson plant. The heavier gauge sidewall allows us to provide taller tanks with our advanced design, compared to other manufacturers who provide wood or 5 gauge sidewalls as their maximum thickness and rely on lamination to try to match the concrete strength.
Can I get a quote for 5' high bunker panels for a storage building with a fabric membrane building on top? The building will be 50'x84' with a 14' opening in one of the 50' sides. Please include delivery and installation of panels to Milwaukee, WI. Thanks. Let me know if you have any questions.
I'll get you a quote right away.
Requesting pricing info on bunker silo walls 8 and 10 foot tall.
Ok- I will call you.
You sell the exact product that I am looking for! However, I am in Eastern North Carolina. I would like to set up two storage units that are 8’ high 150’ long and 75’ wide using a common wall in the middle. I see that you have exactly what I am looking for but is it practical to ship this far? Do you have a plant that is closer to me by chance? Thank you for your time. I am available using the information below. I would look forward to hearing from you.
We ship to Carolina our package with freight included costs much less than engineering and pouring a concrete wall in place in most of the 48 states. I'll get you a quote.
Looking at steel fence storage for coal. what are the main differences between steel coal storage and concrete?
The concrete coal storage will withstand the test of time much better than a steel grain fence. It is a more permanent yet portable and modular approach you'll be happy with.
Have you ever constructed a bunker silo for wood or other pellets? If not, have you ever heard of such a thing? I am investigating biofuel production for the US Government Armed Forces. Thank you for any help you can provide.
Yes, we have constructed commercial storage bunkers for wood chips. I'll get y ou some info on that.
I am reasearching a composting site for my hog farm. I think that 8 bays that are about 16 ft by 30 ft will work well with Hanson T panels. I think I would like a quote on 8 ft and 12 ft walls. the size can be adjusted a bit to avoid cutting any sections short. I spoke with a Hanson Sales Rep a bit about this on the phone. Total size would be 30x120. I am considering a hoop roof or traditional roof to install on top. I am also considering a large machine storage shed. About 70x160 using hanson cement walls and a hoop roof. Let me know your thoughts on this. Thanks
Jack- You called the right place. Hanson has many many projects where our modular pre cast wall systems have helped producers achieve their optimal flexibility on our systems.
Do you have any concrete Bunker silos to storage Urea and Muriate of Potash (KCL or MOP). What is the size of them for a heigt of 9m? What is the costo of them? Thanks
I'm interesting in bulkhead walls for dividing a cement bunker for fertilizer storage. Would be looking for 100 to 120 feet ASAP
Our bulk head walls can span up to 12 feet. You may want to anchor them to prevent against the slide factor when setting them on smooth concrete.
We are looking into putting up a clearspan building for dry fertilizer storage. I see on your site you have a 6' L panel that is suitable for walls for this type of application. What is the weight of an 8' section? What is the cost per 8' section? I would likely freight the walls to my location with my own truck. Also, what is the availability of these wall sections right now and do you have any financing options available for this product? Please email me with info on these questions or you may call me anytime. Thank You
We do have a 6'L Foundation Panel. Each 8' section weighs about 7,600lbs. I normally work up a number on the whole project, How many linear feet are you looking at?
We are looking for a salt storage option. Dimension are 18'X 18'. Height of precast walls desired is 8'6". Could someone please contact me regarding a cost estimate for the product, delivery and any other additional cost that may be associated with this purchase. Thank You,
I will contact you with more information on our salt storage precast walls.
I am in need of Protection Walls to set inside a building. We are looking at steel containment walls but they are cost prohibitive to be wheel loader resistant. Can you help me and send me pricing?
Certainly. Our T panels are solid concrete and stood the test of time of wheel loaders unloading against them within reason. Modular Protection walls can help save your building and you can replace 1 eight foot panel if need be rather than the whole wall.
We're doing a project and I saw your Prefabbed T panels and I am wondering if they would work for paper storage in a warehouse?
The best way to start is with our bunker configurator on the home page. This tool will give you storage estimates of our prebuilt concrete T wall for your salvage project.
Thinking about putting a concrete liner wall in my building. I own an old warehouse and want to use this space to pile bulk aggregates and materials in. What is the best way to do that for a concrete liner?
Usually a Hanson L shaped prebuilt concrete wall works the best for a building liner wall. Similar to a liner kit used on a grain building, but with the ability to change and not put the stress on the building side wall. Our L panels fit close to the wall to gain maximum capacity and are free standing. In some applications you may need to anchor the heel to prevent slide depending on what you are going to set them on.
I need the ability reconfigure and build a system big enough for my needs down the road. STORAGE CAPACITY is an important factor in my precast BUNKER SILO PANELS. I've heard Hanson concrete bunker silo panels are the best.
You certainly called the right place. One of the biggest mistakes I hear time and time again is: Failure to plan for the future. Some people throw $ away on plastic silo bags each year, others are convinced pouring walls are the answer. But Precast concrete Bunker Walls are one of the most versatile products in your operation. Many of our customers move them around for different uses from Fertilizer storage to feed and dry grains.
Hi, I'm looking for a supplier to provide pre-cast walls approx 8' high, 440 Lin ft. want to use the walls as an above grade retaining wall for commodity and pushing wall, also to place fabric structure on top of walls. the project locaiton is in Milford, CT. Do you have suppliers in that region?
How wide of a commodity building would you want?
I am looking for the most economical way to store fertilizer. About 2000 tons of Urea (50ppcf) in two bins. (1000 each) I like your concrete containment walls but I would need to completely close it in. What do you recommend? Arnolds
I would recommend storing the fertilizer in a building and put our walls inside the building. You can do this a few ways: Put a hoop building over the panels (this allows maximum airflow for your caustic fertilizer), Put a stick built building over the panels or on top of them. Each situation is a little different.
We are building a recycling facility in an existing building with a slab floor and are looking to implement a storage bunker system. I would like to get pricing on various sizes of your T modules to get an idea of cost. We are looking for roughly 300' linear feet of 8' to 12' high t walls. Thanks - Jeff
They T modules work well for separating materials in recycling.
I am looking for a price for 600 ft fence line feed bunks and dilivery to Mclaughlin, SD 57642. Feel free to email or call thanks.
We have a premium J bunk. We use a 444 wire mesh in our bunks, so they are resistant to holes after years of use.
Good Morning, We are interested in further sorting of our scrap metal raw materials. We would like to put some of our material in bins for easier handling but we utilize a pretty aggressive material handling practice at our facility using CAT 988H wheel loaders to move our scrap. My questions: 1) Would your walled systems be able to withstand large amounts of weight and pressure from the scrap and loaders? 2) How high can materials be stored effectively in your walled bins? 3) For my cost reasons, can you give me an estimate of how much one standard wall section would cost with its dimensions?
We have the best engineering in the industry. The best part about going with a modular wall is if one panel gets damaged, you can replace one rather than the whole wall.
Can i buy just the silo rings to reinforce a 24 ft water tank? I need the hoops and connectors and nuts, but no staves. I'd need silo bands, lugs and nuts to complete this tank.
Yes. We provide several stock combinations and custom sizes of silo hoops from 10' up to 30' and larger. Our rods are 9/16" 60,000 lb tensile strength and silo bands work well to fasten large structures.
I am looking for a silo conversion on both a madison stave bottom unload silo and one of my harvestores we have been having problems with. Can you convert the silo when it is full?
Great. Hanson has completed several hundred silo conversions from bottom unload to top. We still can do it when the silo is full, we prefer to do it before you fill.
I am looking for price ranges for a conversion kit from btm unloader to chute/top unloader for an 80 ft Harvestore and possibly a set up at our farm.
We are the #1 installer of conversions. I'll get the crew down there next week.
We have a concrete stave silo that developed a crack in early spring. We would like to have it shock creted the bottom 20 feet. We'd like to know a price for doing that as well as a time frame that it might be able to be done. Thank you Harold
Shot crete or Gunnite is a good solution to reinforce your old silo and strengthen it. I will give you a call
I have a harvestore silo which has been converted to top unloading but there has never been a tripod installed. I would like to put a tripod on this silo so I didn't have to remove the unloader each year. Can you give me the name of someone who can do this work?
We have a tripod kit with stiffeners that go onto the top sheet sections. We can add this on to your Steel silo- thanks
Commercial Silo/ Grain Elevator Repair
We are a large food and grain company and have a annex of 20 silos we use for oats, barley, and wheat. We our commercial silos are leaking and need to be re sealed. Does Hanson offer this kind of services?
Hanson's commercial silo repair team has over 78 years of combined experience. We can help you.
We have a number of stave silos that we are considering having replastering done . Silos are 18 and 20 dia. X 50' , These are grouped and covered by a flat cement top , also sitting on a flat bottom , with tunnels under them . they are used for storage of grains barley ,corn . Would like getting a quote on this project Thank You Dale
Hanson Silo offers commercial replastering of the inside of silo clusters and outside concrete repair. We can seal cracks and repair spalled concrete, tuck pointing with a variety of industrial bonds and caulking.
Powder Coat and Blasting Services
i have a race car i would like to have blasted and powder coated i was wondering what the price would be the color would be black
John- we have several options on black. Textured finish and a variety of glosses. I will get some prices together. If your race car frame is currently liquid painted or not at all it will blast much easier and cost less.
I'm building a trailer and wanted to see what it would cost to get it powder coated instead of just painting it. It will be an enclosed trailer (8'x14' w/ 4' V nose) so overall dimensions are 8' wide, ~23' long and ~8' tall. The main trailer is mostly 5" channel, the enclosure skeleton is 1x2 and 2x2 square tube. Its all new metal, but I'm guessing you'd have to do a quick media blast. It does have a torsion axle so I'd have to check with the axle mfg about temperature limits. Thanks in advance, Joe
Joe- I will get you a quote right away. You will need to take the axle off most likely.
i need pricing on 120 of the secure gravel bags
our secure cover gravel bags work well for many uses.
I farm about 90 North of Denver, CO and I am looking for a modular temporary grain storage system that could double as silage storage down the road. We have a slab we could set the walls on. The concrete slab is 150'x 200'and I am looking to store 150,000 bushel of corn. What size would you recommend. I saw your video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGSw-vVCER4 and liked the versatility of the hanson system.
Dave- I will get you some more information on the options you have.
I have a 10 foot high buttress style corn bunker with high moisture corn stored in it. It is old and I want to take down the one 208' stationary wall and replace with a Hanson stationary walls T panel system about 10.5' high. how much are they a foot? I need to check with my poured wall guy too for a price.
I will have a Hanson salesman call you with that information. A few things you are going to want to consider are: what is the cost of engineering your poured in place wall? We have seen these costs in the $3,000 to $5,000 range. What if you'd like to change the configuration in the future? Poured wall you have to jack hammer it apart and find a place to take it. With a Hanson stationary wall- it is modular so you can easily move it or re sell it. I am sure you can find a 'cheaper' basement formed wall, but do you really want that? That is the question.
i would like to build a silage storage facility. Are you familiar with FSA and their farm storage loan programs?
Yes sir. Our sales staff is well versed on the different FSA loan programs.
Bunker Silo information Greetings! I am interested in the pricing of you 6' and 8' pre-cast bunker silo walls. Any information or a price list would be very helpful!
both our 6 and 8 ft walls will yield higher feed quality than your earthen silo pit.
Greetings! My farm owns/operated a dairy farm and we are wanting another bunker for silage storage. When have two already, but they are just built into the side of a hill. I am interested in the pricing of you 6' and 8' pre-cast bunker silo walls. We are located in NE Oklahoma.
That is a good choice. Your feed quality will increase significantly with our 6 or 8 foot wall panels.
I am looking for a bunker silo capacity chart. Do you have silo capacity charts you could send me?
yes. We have a bunker silo capacity chart and a configurator which has helped many producers size up their project, whether it bunker silo for this year or a bunker silo for next year.
i'm looking at a better cleaner way to store silage than bags i'd like to find out what kind of price would be for a 16'x60' silo with unloader and if there is any financing
You called the right place. A Hanson Bunker or a Silo is much cleaner and environmentally friendly way to store feed.
Could you please give us a cost estimate on a commodity shed like the one that we have viewed on line with your company it is the one with 7 bays. Also the dimensions of the panels and the building. Thank You Kyle
What height walls would you like? What is the total running feet?
I am interested in getting a quote on a 60' x 100' x 12' concrete silage bunker. It would be located at ND. Thank you, Bob
Bob- We are the leader of concrete silage bunker. Our Bunker Silo is the best in the West.
I am looking at a 40 X 120 X 10 silage bunker and a commodity shed with 3 bays 20 X 40. Can you give me an estimate on the cost of these delivered and set up in Winner SD. Also do you build the commodity shed or do you just do the panels. Thank you. E-mail would be the best way to reply. John Watkins
We do not build the top part as there are so many different ways to do that and most producers have contractors to do that. We specialize in Bunker Silo and commodity storage bin part.
I have a feed pile in on the ground and am looking for an earthen bunker or some silo pit walls. I would like to put up 50,000 bushel of high moisture corn in my silo pit walls on one side and in the other bay of the silo pit ground ear corn or snapplage.
A great part about our silo liner walls or as we call them bunkers is you can adjust or scale them to the commodity to fit your rations as they change. Many of our customers like kicker cells on the side to put dry distillers, beat pulp and other by products from refineries and ethanol plants. Talk to your nutritionist for the best mix we can help store it afford-ably.
I currently feed: Potato Slurry, Wet Corn Gluten, WDGs, course ground hay, pressed cake (about 25% DM), soil pellets, wet distillers grains. How does your pre fabbed system work with these feedstuffs?
From beet pulp, to bubble gum, we've seen it all. I will contact you and take a look at this bunker silo project.
Hi, I am in the midst of purchasing a farm with 3 large Silos that were used for a dairy operation. I continue to believe, to the disdain or my father and uncle, that they could be used in a beef operation. The silos are structurally sound, but have not been used in 20 years since the dairy closed down. All the mechanics would need to be replaced... So, am I right, is it a better option than buying brand new haying equipment. And, what would be the costs to get them back in working order? Can you contact me. Or provide a name and number of someone I could speak to in sales?
They work well for easy beef feeding. Push button farming.
I am looking at 3 bunkers for silage. 24-130 size each. would like a recomendation on size and way to protect from spoilage. also, include pricing. Also wonder if using a facer is going to help my dry matter density. Thanks, Paul
Paul- I have a few ideas that can help maximize your dry matter density and reduce spoilage in your feedstuffs. We have several Hanson customers who are getting superior quality feed out of their bunker system and making them a lot of money.
I am interested in the cost of your panels for storing silage on the ground.
You certainly contacted the right place. We offer a low cost per ton of silage.
Grain Storage Systems
I am pricing an on farm grain storage system. The things important to me are: low cost per bushel compared to a bin. We are currently working with Brand X and they have a package with square corners. Last I checked my dry corn won't flow into a square corner. I really like your round end corn storage design and I am looking to store 300,000 bushel. Does Hanson make systems cost effective enough for a progressive farmer like me?
Stan- I'll get out there this evening and bring project photos of the hundreds of millions of bushel of corn storage we've done. We'll get you a grain store system you are happy with that will meet your low target cost per bushel.
I need Bulkhead walls for cracked corn. It would be 2 bays about 30' each. Bulkhead walls would be set up in a building.
We can help with your bulkhead wall need.
Would like some information on grain bunkers for this fall, we would use them for corn. Looking for a bunker that holds approx 500,000-750,000 bushel. Probably looking for two bunkers at different locations. Thank you, Tim A.
Tim- Hanson is your 1 stop shop for permanent temporary grain storage. Our grain storage bunkers are all over the country side at farms and elevators.
We are looking at building a grain storage facility in Valley City, ND for a past client. Would like to get a quote from you for 12' bunker panels 180' x 480' bunker. Thank you Darrell
Darrell- We can get that worked up for you. It is a good idea to consider Our wireless cloud based grain management system too. It is a low cost per bushel way to keep an eye on your flatstorage grain in realtime
I am in need of some containment walls for a coke storage facility. How much do your concrete panels cost for the bulk coke storage?
Hanson ships our walls all over the US for a variety of storage applications.
