Meridian's NEW swing hopper

Meridians new swing hopper is the lowest AND longest available on the market, and wider than existing models. With a height of just under 10 inches, our modified hopper is ideal for use under low profile trailers, and offers ease of operation and ample clearance in all unload applications. In addition, the longer and wider design maximizes reach, increases handling capacities and reduces overflow and spillage. For easy and efficient grain handling, Meridian is the best choice.


Our new 14 inch auger is a colossal grain mover and Meridians tallest, strongest and best auger on the market. Manufactured with the same quality workmanship you have come to expect from Meridian, this high capacity, mechanical drive swing auger will make moving grain much easier and more efficient. The Meridian 143 auger delivers the highest level of safety and is powder coated for durability and a long lasting finish.

Product Details

Head End: Heavy duty gear boxes in the feed auger head and main tube can handle any delivery challenge.

Hopper Lift: Accommodate any operating situation by placing the hopper on the left or right hand side of the main tube.

Transition: Enclosed transition between the feed auger and the main tube reduces dust while the easy access clean-out doors make clearing the tube and maintaining parts easy.

Hopper: The self-leveling, low profile hopper features a patented drive system that turns the two Super-Edge" flighting augers toward the center of the hopper and creates a smooth flow of product to the feed tube.

Scissor Lift: Unique reverse-scissor lift design allows for close positioning to tall bins while increasing stability during transport.

Flighting: We roll form the flighting directly onto the shaft to create a long lasting product that is balanced to run smooth and quiet. That means less wear and tear and an increased lifespan on every auger we manufacture. Flighting shaft connections are made with a spline coupler, this allows for flexible movement of the shaft within the tube.
