Ron,
Make a call to the Rogers Feed Mill, Inc and see if they know who might deal in flex augers...after all the primary use of a flex auger is to move animal feed and related grain crops.

THANKS to all of you, I will check all of them out along with the one I found near Salem Ohio, that is about an hour away from me. Now I have a few places to talk to, I will let you all know how it comes out. As I posted before I have the straight 6 inch augers for my trailer and my coal bins now I am looking to buy about 50 ft. of flex auger to move coal from the trailer to my outside coal bin.

How did this turn out? I currently am setting up a grain hopper/bin from a chicken house. Then running a flex auger system 350 as I've seen recommended online. I want to run it straight into my basement, and dump it right into the hopper on my Harman coal stoker. If it works the way I want it to, I just have coal delivered and dumped into the hopper and then I can flip a switch and run the coal right into the hopper with no work involved. Just take the ashes out. I will have to make sure the holes are sealed to minimize the dust in the basement.

I am running about 75 feet of flex auger from the hopper to the stove.

If your using rice 75 feet will be nothing I have 35ft pulling pea coal uphill to the ceiling to dump it off and it works flawlessly
