Save time, money the smart way

The West logo

Conquest Engineering and Supplies, a family-run business in the Mid West Wheatbelt, has a product line-up which includes seed and fertiliser bins.

The ‘Smart Bin’, which is being marketed under the AllQuip banner, is one of the company’s most outstanding products.

With the cost of harvesters, tractors and tillage equipment increasing, time delays unloading and filling equipment have become of major importance.

AllQuip Smart Bins are designed to minimise this with a discharge rate of more than two tonnes per minute being just one of its many important features.

With the advent of compound fertilisers, this product now comes standard with stainless steel auger barrels and hydraulic lines.

Electric start motor and finger tip hydraulic controls to swing out augers complement its ease of operation.

A roll tarp with captive centre rail — no need for centre rail in the bin which is a hazard for filling with FEL — keeps product protected while remote controls for discharge augers can be operated from the top of the silo or airseeder to avoid waste of grain and fertiliser.

The product has been well proved over the past five years with units throughout the Wheatbelt from Mingenew to Esperance.

As one satisfied farmer said: “The only thing wrong with my bin is that I didn’t buy it years ago — it makes a lazy man lazier!”

Conquest Engineering and Supplies Pty Ltd also manufactures augers for draper fronts, the AllQuip ‘Smart Auger’ (to solve feed problems with canola, peas and lupins) and AllQuip ‘three-point linkage equipment’, environmentally friendly bunded fuel tanks which meet AS1940, AS1692 standards.

These tanks are bunded to 110 per cent of their capacity with sizes ranging from 959–3000 litres, transportable.

Static storage tanks up to 30,000 litres are also part of the product line.
