Handi-Hopper Makes Positioning Augers Easy, Saves Messes & Spills

How does your auger hopper look? Does it need a few more rolls of duct tape and a couple more square bales to keep it in service? If you think auger hoppers are in desperate need of a re-design you are not alone. Cue Hoffart Services, based at Odessa, Sask., who thought it was about darn time to engineer a better hopper.

In this video, we talk to Joe Hoffart of Hoffart Services Inc. about the “Handi-Hopper,” which garnered a lot of attention from farmers at Canada’s Farm Progress Show. Hoffart explains how easy the hopper is to use, what augers it works with, and the current retail value. Hoffart says that although the hopper was designed around the Sakundiak augers, a simple-to-weld hitch will make the Handi-Hopper compatible with any other manufacturer’s auger. Currently available on 8″ and 10″ augers, Hoffart says they’re working on a model for 12″ and 13″ models. What’s more, the hopper is designed to stay on, even in transport. Now that sounds like a good idea.
