Shivvers DRI-FLO - Model 1000 - Bottom Transfer Machine
The DRI-FLO 1000 is a 'bottom transfer' machine that offers a removal rate up to 1000 bushels per hour. The heavy duty bonnet with removable panels allows easy access to grease the center gearbox. The sweep augers bring grain through “metering ring” liners located under the bonnet. Fingers on these liners restrict grain flow so an even layer of grain is drawn off the floor without “coning out” in the center of the bin. The grain is then dropped into the basket where it is picked up by the horizontal unload auger and carried to an outside Jumpster Auger, air system, or elevator leg.
ump from the horizontal unload auger to a grain transfer device, whether it be air transfer, elevator leg, loop, or transfer auger. It’s designed to fit the DRI-FLO 1000 with an 8” unloader and is adjustable to virtually any angle from vertical to horizontal, or from straight away from the drying bin to a 90° angle to the right. The Basic Jumpster is available in convenient lengths of 5’, 10’ and 20’ to fit practically any application. Auger extensions may be added for additional length.
Dri-Flo 1000 Components
The COMPUDRY™ Command Center is designed with the operator in mind. It is easy to use with fingertip control of your entire drying process. Make your initial settings to the Command Center, concentrate on harvesting your crop, and keep grain in the drying bin. You will never have to babysit your dryer again.
The Shivvers Channel-Lock Floor offers twice as much open area as the competition with 23% open area, while Shivvers Steel Floor Supports allows maximum airflow with minimum obstruction. With maximum open area and airflow, you can expect the most drying capacity for your money.
Shivvers augers are constructed of heavy-duty fliting with a 1 ¼ ” shaft and 14-ga. galvanized tube. Once in place, there is no need to move the auger around from bin to bin. Using the CompuDry Command Center, simply select the auger to the desired bin by the flip of a switch.

Gauges and Thermometer
The long stem thermometer mounts with the probe into the plenum chamber to give an actual temperature reading of the plenum. The static pressure gauge measures back pressure in the plenum area of the drying bin. To maximize drying efficiency and capacity, it is important to know the static pressure.
