    You think that's creative, you should have hung around and watched a 48" riding snowthrower load 28.13 tonnes of salt into the salt bin in a hour and 23 minutes

    I often wondered if I could do this... make a wooden fixture that the dump drops on to sloping down into the auger... point the output into the bunker. It would stack right to the roof....

    We thought a video would have been appropriate about half way through, it was slick.

    28.13 tonnes in the driveway. one hour and 35 later stored in the 2 car garage with 6.5 foot head space doorway. piled to 8 feet at the back. Baby Bobcat pick up from driveway. dumps in front of snowthrower. snowthrower fires it 8 feet high to the back of bin. repeat 500 lbs at a time until complete. about one minute a cycle timing

    I was a little concerned about breaking the blower.
