Design & Manufacture for the Horticultural Trade

Do you have a requirement for a Bulk Bin Elevator?


The Bulk Bin is a purpose built unit designed mainly for the handling of bulk bags of compost. Loose compost is also easily managed with the help of a front loading tractor no more shovelling. Once the hopper is loaded the unit can be started by either an on/off switch, foot switch or a compost sensor to start the chain and flight conveyer and so load your potting bench or potting machine with compost. The conveyer system incorporated in the hopper is a chain and flight style rather than belt: this ensures contact with the compost and minimizes the chance of bridging or blocking. The whole unit can be easily moved around the nursery by lifting with a fork-lift by way of the fork sleeves mounted under the machine.

Feeding a cross conveyor (we can tailor design your bin, be it hopper capacity, conveyor width or discharge height.


  • Unit is powered by a 3-phase motor with either constant or variable speed
  • Single phase option
  • Up to 3 cubic mtr capacity hopper chain and flight conveyor
  • Standard discharge height of the conveyor is 1.25 extra height is optional

The Bulk Bin – the best answer for handling bulk materials, bagged or loose!
