GSI Introduces Precision-Engineered GSI 40-Series Grain Bins

Date Posted: February 1, 2013

Assumption, IL—Grain Systems Inc. (GSI), a global brand of AGCO (NYSE: AGCO), introduces the GSI 40-Series™ bins, the next generation in grain storage and handling.

Presenting the new Z-Tek Roof System, the new 40-series bins’ roof can accommodate large grain-handling equipment while reducing the need for additional structural towers to support the weight.

The additional strength will allow customers to move more grain faster than ever, cutting time required unloading trucks and filling the bin.

Customers in northern climates will also appreciate the increased snow load capacities.

The 40-Series is designed for large farms and commercial grain-handling operations and offers capacity from 7,000 to 1.2 million bushels.

GSI unveiled the newly designed bin series to their dealers last week. The innovative line of bins and accessories, available this spring, addresses needs identified by GSI customers, dealers and builders, said Scott Becker, 40-Series product manager.

“We started with a blank canvas and asked for input from throughout the industry,” he said. “The result is the most all-encompassing product we’ve ever offered. It’s easier to use and even easier to build.”

For example, integrated attachment points in the 40-Series flat-top roof eliminate guesswork on where to attach material-handling equipment, allowing for accurate and fast assembly.

And the new bins can be erected using many standard brackets and parts, allowing commercial bin builders to work more quickly and efficiently, reducing the owner’s construction costs.

In addition to the Z-Tek Roof System, the 40-Series uses a new stiffener profile and stronger 2-gauge material that support additional rings for increased bin height.

“Besides the higher capacity and better strength, the 40-Series also provides better protection from the outside elements, a benefit our customers will see now and for the life of the product,” Becker said. Superior protection of grain inside the 40-Series is provided by:

• Overlapping roof sheets to prevent leaks,

• Rust-resistant JS5000 bolts, and

• A rolled structural base angle to prevent water from entering at the base of the bin.
