Piled higher and deeper

A friend of mine who has been having a lot of combine trouble called me to come help.  He needed a truck driver for a day and I was glad to help.  Our deliveries were to an elevator that I do not usually patronize.  They were piling corn outside in a bunker.  It was the method for filling the bunker that intrigued me. image Yep, that’s an excavator on that pile with a large bucket to move the corn. image Dump trucks and a payloader are getting the corn within reach of the excavator.  Quite an operation just so they have a place for all of the corn coming in this fall.  They have air tubes under the corn and a tarp to cover it.  As long as the fans run the tarp will stay in place.  All for a few months storage.  Interesting.
