Annual Maintenance Recommendations
All proper safety precautions should be taken by all personnel who perform maintenance and repairs on elevated seed houses.
Clean out all seed.
Clean hopper panels to remove seed oil. Many gins report good results with steam cleaning.
Make the hopper surfaces smooth again! Many gins report good results with a sander or steel brush.
Examine for stress fractures and loose hardware. Repair or replace as necessary.
Remove rust and corrosion.
Add proper guards or fall protection devices on exterior inspection ladders.
Post decals “DANGER - DO NOT ENTER AREA BELOW HOPPER DOORS WHEN SEED IS IN STORAGE HOUSE.” Decals are available at no charge from Cliff Granberry Corp.
Add Hopper Conversion Kit if the seed house is in reasonably good condition.
If repairs are too extensive, replace with new Elevated Seed House.
