Westfield launches award winning innovative drive over hopper

WINNIPEG, Manitoba – July 22nd, 2014 – Westfield, a leading grain auger and accessories manufacturer, recently announced the release of the new GULP Drive Over Hopper* with an ultra-low profile, allowing for efficient and quick truck unloading for on-farm applications.

The GULP is an ultra-low profile drive over hopper that transports with a 13" Westfield swing auger. It removes the need to re-attach or re-position multiple pieces of equipment when unloading trucks and trailers. The drive over unit hydraulically lowers and swings into position while the one-touch ramp deployment provides easy setup in minutes. Compatible with almost all trucks, this drive over hopper is only 4.5" high and features a large catchment area and revolutionary chevron belt to auger transition.

“The GULP hopper is one of the most exciting auger innovations Westfield has ever produced. Our design with the low profile belt concept, has the potential to benefit just about every farm where augers are being used. It will revolutionize the grain handling industry,” stated Westfield General Sales Manager, Greg Giesbrecht. The GULP was officially debuted at the 2014 Canada’s Farm Progress Show, earning the prestigious Innovations Award which recognizes achievement in innovative agriculture products and services.

*The GULP Drive Over Hopper is Patent Pending.
