Grain reception pit and unloading truck

A complete range dedicated to grain reception

FAO supplies a complete range of equipment for receiving cereals and bulk products. Our reception pits, made of robust steel, combine durability and strength. Available in a range of sizes and capacities, the cereal reception pit can be pass-through or non-pass-through, in-ground or above-ground, to meet all farm requirements. It can be fitted with a separating grid to remove impurities and debris from the grain during unloading. In addition, FAO offers hoppers for farms requiring a mobile receiving solution. Our mobile hoppers are easy to move and offer high storage capacity.

Receiving pit for FAO cereals

The cereal reception pit plays an essential role in preserving the quality of cereals as soon as they arrive on site. Its importance in the grain processing chain cannot be underestimated. It ensures that grain, cereal seed or pellets are transported smoothly and efficiently. At FAO, we understand that every farm is unique, with specific needs. That’s why we tailor our solutions to your specific requirements and constraints. We use high-quality materials to manufacture our reception pits. These ensure not only exceptional durability, but also optimum grain protection, minimizing the risk of damage and loss.

Optimization and efficiency of your farming operations

Receiving pits offer many advantages that simplify and optimize post-harvest agricultural operations:

  • Rapid unloading: for rapid unloading of grain from machines and trucks.
  • Impurity filtration: reception pits can be fitted with grids to remove impurities and debris, ensuring better quality of stored grain.
  • Flexibility: we tailor pits to the specific needs of each operation, from small farms to larger operations.
  • Optimized operations: they reduce waiting times and congestion during unloading, making operations run more smoothly.
