Grain bin opener closes the lid on old-school practices
Manitoba Ag Days Inventor’s Showcase: EZLid can make closing off the top of your grain bin, well… easy
With Shawn Poncsak’s invention there’s no more need for ropes, cables or ladders to open and close the top of your grain bin.
EZLid is an automatic grain bin opener that can open up to six bins from a control box located at ground level. The system is CSA-approved and its internal components are made by a company in Brandon, Man. The protective, external box is rust-resistant and built to withstand harsh weather conditions.
Cal Vandaele “The Rye Guy” of Vandaele Seeds Ltd, Medora Manitoba, demonstrates using the EZLid on the gate of a hopper bottom grain bin
