I've sniffed out and bought several larger grain cleaners to replace my 47b I built last year. The demand for on-farm seed cleaning was a fair bit beyond my expectations, so I'm getting a bigger machine to get done faster. This one I bought sight unseen from Montana and didn't realize it didn't have top air, so I'm gonna sell it. It's a super 29a. I also have 2 29ds. One of which will hopefully be my machine for this year. Otherwise, I found another cleaner in Missouri I want to go after to see if it's what I want. Probably head out the 15th of February for that one.



I'm also trying to figure out if I should keep looking for the type of trailer I have in my head, or just build it. I want about 4 feet of enclosed storage at the front, 4 feet of open area below a surge bin to be able to change screens, 12 feet for the cleaner, and 6 feet out the back for a bagging area and a scale. It has to be a gooseneck, deck between the wheels, and no beavertail. I'm pessimistic that I'll find one.

Here's last year's machine on a job. It will be for sale when my new one is ready -

That is a pretty good size. When I was a kid there was an old hand
cranked one in the old barn. Was a fadded red color. Had cloth screens
in it. So sad, long gone. Almost totally made of wood. Maybe a quater
of the size of yours. Makes you want to cry as to how much neat old
stuff was just junked.

Talk to some trailer dealers. There should be companies out there who will build to your spec/requirements.

I have two 2bs and a 2b special as well. I also have a 16b. They keep popping up around here... Gotta keep rotating them so my dear life partner doesn't get a firm count.

Lots of them were burnt and the metal fished outta the ashes until recently. In fact, the guy from Montana said he was gonna burn his, but decided to try putting it on CL first. I and it got lucky. The guy from Missouri said he almost burnt his, too, but thought he'd try selling it first. The 47b I bought and rebuilt was definitely ready to be burnt when I bought it. It was literally a pile of rotten boards. I got it out of Nebraska.

I was consistently getting 65bu/hr up to 125 bu/hr out of the 47b, depending on the cleanliness of the grain. Dirty stuff obviously took more time through and made a poorer sample. The bigger machines should do a fair bit better - 175-225bu/hr. I get much bigger screens, top air, one more sieve screen, and a second shoe. These should also make a cleaner sample as well.

No this one was a diferent make. About the same size bit a bit chunkier looking. Can remember the screen would shake back and forth. My old man, if it wasn't needed anymore get rid of it.

If any of you guys are selling the larger cleaners I may be
interested in s mn. I have a 2b and clean a lot of oats. Looking
for something with a bit more capacity.

rockyridgefarm: Have you thought about taking the cleaning section off an AC 72 combine and turning it into your seed cleaner???? I saw the plans to do that years ago. You would have a lot more capacity I think. If I remember correctly the AC 72 had three sets of screens stacked like the Clipper seed cleaners. Be too long ago since I ran one.

Here's a few photos from removing a cleaner out of an old mill in Rice Lake, WI that is being converted to a brewpub. We got there about 7 am and were gone by about 1 pm. The machine was on the second story and needed to be taken apart and lowered through the hole. We'll be working on this one last. The next one came from Western Kansas and is in much smaller pieces. (last pic)

JDSeller,

I don't think there are many AC72s around to do that to. That, and they're collectable enough that I would hate to do such a thing. I've been very careful not to spend too much on these Clippers so I can sell them off after cleaning them up for a small profit.

Funny thing, two years ago I didn't know a single thing about them. They're very interesting machines. Lots of parts are still available from AT Ferrell new, or used from Commodity Traders. Most manuals and parts catalogs are free on Ferrell's website.

These must have gone global - most folks round my way in Scotland had the same machine! Spent many hours as a youth cranking the handle!

Very interesting! Don't combines get the seed clean enough for planting or are you thrashing the crop? What type of seeds do you clean and how much do you charge?
