Picked this up today to use for my coal bin. Thinking I will spin the tub around power it with an electric motor and remove the upward facing auger so it will auger out the back into an auger in my lean to that fills my hopper. Needs a little reinforcement work but pretty solid. Should hold close to 3 ton and can take it and get it filled

I have been doing a little work on the bin cutting unnecessary things off and setting it up to unload out the back without the "spout". Do any of you guy with auger bin experience no if a 220v 2.5 hp motor will start and run the auger in the bottom it's a 5 inch auger about 6 ft long, it came in the grain wagon. I will have a 3 inch pulley on motor and 13 on auger. These are things I had or srounged up cheap so would like to use them if possible

That will put you around 400 rpm, should work but if it doesn't just put a larger pulley on the auger.
