just put 6k bushels of corn in harvest right before Christmas and the other day went to take corn out and the unloading auger is froze solid.  ran the space heater so the auger tube sticking out of the silo was very warm.  got warm enough in the silo room that the roof started dripping a lot of water.  still wouldnt turn the auger.  took the grinder and cut a hole in the transition panel and stuck the pipe for the grain vac in it.  so i am using the 4640 to run the vac and unload into a wagon that is dumping into the auger then to the grain cart. 

slow but its working. kind of nice that i can stop the auger and move the cart while the vac keeps putting corn in the wagon.
