Cleaning up grain stores and agricultural equipment with the Big Brutes

Big Brutes were born for agricultural cleaning.

Back in the early 1980s, Michael Williams was designing and installing grain stores. Before each harvest, they needed to be thoroughly cleaned out and the tiny farmhouse vacuum was the only thing available.

Why wasn’t there a big vacuum cleaner, with big power, big, long hoses that didn’t block and big capacity to clean up all the muck from a grain store?

Soon there was and the rest is history.


Big Brutes we recommend for cleaning up grain stores and agricultural equipment

Although you’ll find the Big Brutes cleaning up in virtually all industries around the world, they’ve always been at home on the farm.

For general cleaning around the grain store and sheds, you can’t beat a Big Brute Popular. Get right down into grain pits and up into elevators.

If you need to clean that grain store floor, too, have a look at the Big Brute Warehouseman which makes it easy to clean large floors without stirring up dust into the air.

For more specialised cleaning, ask us about The Big Brute Mole for cleaning out the drying ducts under your grain store floor, reducing your drying costs.

If you also want to tackle water and wet waste, such as in the bottom of grain pits, the Big Brute Wet & Dry will handle it all.

For bulk handling of grain, you’re spoiled for choice. The Big Brute Suck & Dump range will suck up grain which you can then lift up with your forklift to empty through the bottom into your skips or IBCs.

For the ultimate in grain handling, the Big Brute Bulkmasters reign supreme. They hold either half-a-tonne or a full tonne of grain when full and can be moved and raised with your telehandler to empty over skips easily and safely.
