The shipping bushels plays a key role in the transfer of grain and other bulk products. Our shipping bushels are designed to ensure fast truck loading and optimize working time. Conical bottom bushels ensure optimum grain flow, as the angle of the cone remains constant along its entire length. This feature distinguishes it from square bushels, where the cone angle can vary, impacting the fluidity of the grain flow.

The hopper is galvanized with round square transformation. The valve opening is facilitated by rack-and-pinion control on the loading platform via a handwheel, and from the ground via a nut-and-chain wheel. The square-round shape reduces grain retention, making the bushel suitable for temporary storage.
The four-legged structure is designed to facilitate the passage of trucks and tractors, and can also be positioned above a weighbridge. The shipping bushels offer different inclinations, 45° or 60°, depending on the type of product to be stored. All our bushels are galvanized for strength and durability, and their variable capacities meet the specific needs of our customers.

For industrial applications requiring larger storage capacities, we offer loading bushels with capacities ranging from 27 m³ to 267 m³. Manufactured from galvanized corrugated steel, with a Z 600g/m² coating for the cylinder and ZM310g/m² for the roof, these shipping bushels offer excellent tightness and a long service life. Robust and reliable, these shipping bushels ensure efficient and reliable grain unloading onto trucks.

For your storage needs, we also offer indoor and outdoor storage silos for cereals and bulk products.
