Big MODS to the NEW Cleaner!

Welker Farms

168 Tsd. aufrufe6

    Unlike the majority of agriculture in the United States, small grain producers often reuse their own grain for the seed. This can be financially beneficial and provides security within the operation. Each crop is different and it takes specially designed machines to properly clean out unwanted material and size the kernals. These machines can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and are very complex. Fortunately we got a good deal on this GCS screen grain cleaner. This cleaner will be setup to remove rocks, pea splits, light chaff, and size peas. After just a few years it'll pay for itself and give us more control of when and where we clean. But like anything, this is a new endeavor for us and time will tell if the investment was successful or a failure.

        Quick question. Why not use the shipping pallet as the base to use when running the machine?

      5. Chrissy Francis8

        Beautiful kids Nick!

    2. NDSportsman NDSportsman

      What did all the down time turn Leg Arms into a slacker? haha

    3. Red E

      Nice bucket! 👍 And probably been said but I was thinking ice fishing house for crank down/up axles!

    4. Kenneth Scofield

      Looks like nice welds 👍 hope it works for you!!

    5. Gail Roon

      Should be faster than an old fanning mill

    6. FlynFarmer

      What did you get at Scheels?

    7. Steve Kegerreis

      I couldn't hear you truck start ! I know it did because it's a GMC but I still couldn't hear it

    8. Tim Smith

      Check out Larson Farm’s video on their new exhaust for their trucks. Company was out of Montana.

    9. russ snively

      What is with farmers and white trucks? Put some paint on that thing!

    10. Dan Finley

      Fun project with the pops thanks for sharing god bless

    11. DefinitelyNotWhoYouThink

      Every family farm in North America has that one old building that keeps decades of potentially useful parts in it that eventually get incorporated into new fabrications. We affectionately call ours "The Black Hole".

      1. Robert Welker

        It's true. Love the expression!

    12. goodiezgrigis

      I dont know what happened to Scott, but seems he had some kind of revelation since the nasty accident and is doing some soul-searching as he is not as much in the videos lately. Hope he is doing okay.

      1. Robert Welker

        He's back from New York. Now on to the shop projects.

    13. Wayne Robinson

      Nick - - - put a Armytrix exhaust on they have a good sound and add a bit more hp to

    14. Mitch Lecapoy

      Just make pull out Jacks on 4 corners like how light plants have, makes a large foot print out and is adjustable with 4 jacks like you have on the front, so technically youd have 5 points of contact on the ground

    15. David C

      Yes you have to supply air to the feed box google is your friend to find information on your scalper. Need solid foundation for it to work right

    16. steve shoemaker

      A NOTHER TO HERWAY DAY fish and all...Thanks yu'all's

    17. Jim McLean

      Sorry Nick it should have said between yourself your father and leg arms will all put your heads together and figure that screener out I like the idea what you're doing but for a heat screen you may want to put a smaller one in so the wheat drops are in the chaff blows or the wheat blows out and that chaff stays behind balls in the floor or something but I'm sure you guys will get her all figured out like he did that rotor smoker that was one cool idea in Case IH came out with and you guys did the work and Tony Fast "aka Fast Ag Montana" helped you on it and it look like it turned out awesome

    18. Philip Grubb

      Where’s Scott at he’s the one that needs to be doing the welding his looks better nick Lol 😂

    19. Jim McLean

      You guys will figure it out nick between you me leg arms , your father you make it work

    20. Alex Jeffries

      That screen has to have a good bit of material on it to work good

    21. Henry McCabe

      You should put a hydraulic jack on the back end for taking the wheels on and off.

    22. Tim Baltzer

      Larson farms put some aftermarket exhaust on there trucks form a company in Montana.

    23. racerdad

      I’ve only seen that on a cutoff wheel when the mounting nut/washer is left loose and the disc is spinning on shaft with washer flopping around?!?

    24. lobbyrobby

      So what happened to the air cleaner. We're thinking about trying one of those? Did you not like it?

      1. lobbyrobby

        @Robert Welker did you try it on wheat or beans?

      2. Robert Welker

        We demoed it a couple years ago but decided against buying. It did work well for peas but needed a scalper to remove rocks.

    25. Chris Cummings

      If you are thinking of upgrading the exhaust on your truck look at the flowmaster flow fx cat back system. Just installed it on my 2014 Silverado and it sounds great. Only down fall was the sound with the afm system turned on. Bought a tuner to shut that off and now it sounds great all the time!

    26. Jeffrey Broadbent

      By the title I thought you bought a rock picker.

    27. Norm Nielsen

      It's -10 and the dude is wearing a sweatshirt. What kind of super human is this?

    28. Michael Waters

      You used a jack to hold up the drawbar! For shame! :)

    29. EHanson814

      Larson Farms got you on the exhaust. Sorry Sir!

    30. Dusty Martin

      Put bull dog hacks on all four corners and you wouldn't have to take the wheels off and it would be easy to level it

    31. William Gleaves

      Put a shelf to hold the rail road ties on the tongue

    32. Ken Miller

      Hello!! From The Dalles,OR.

    33. Gavin Perry

      Need to talk to Larson Farms about exhaust modifications and they just did three half ton trucks with awesome results.

      1. World through a windshield

        the company that did it was out of Montana to boot

    34. Jacob Teter

      Neat stuff! The creativity you all have to come up with things is amazing!

    35. pine cone

      Love these videos! 👍

    36. Nathan Otremba

      Why dont you want the smaller peas?

      1. Nathan Otremba

        @Robert Welker awsome thanks for the answer

      2. Robert Welker

        @Nathan Otremba yes

      3. Nathan Otremba

        @Robert Welker ahhhh I see now, thank you. So the small peas go back in a bin and get sent off to the market?

      4. Robert Welker

        They are fine when marketing but for seed we like consistent size. Small peas are weaker in emerging.

    37. twothreebravo

      17:15 Tires really holdin air! 18:30 No it ain't!

    38. Gloppie 3

      Awesome video, its a joy seeing the kids. Future farmers.

    39. wbball15


    40. Nigel Gribble

      Would you guy's ever build a bigger heated shop that you can get the combines in and have better head height?

      1. Robert Welker

        We can get the combines in the south half of the shop. The door is 15' high.

    41. Robert Davis

      Probably leftover Hemp stored in it. A couple dozen bushels of peas will clean out the screens.

    42. Robert Davis

      They call the shaker mechanism a Gyrex, Nick. Used this system to seperat different grades of coal. Noisy as He%l, but does the job. Nice buy there youngun.

    43. Green thumb

      June FBI shows up at Welker farms asking about new species of wild wood weed growing around building site, low in THC but none the less invasive and of concern to others who get bored guarding White House, ha, lol...

      1. Robert Welker

        Always ready for a "smokin' hot deal" 😊

    44. SGT Stedanko

      Hey guys, I've been subbed to your channel since the beginning and have made quite a few donations. I was thinking since we're pretty much friends now, can I bring the family over and have dinner with you guys?

      1. SGT Stedanko

        @Robert Welker Well what did the wives say? I'm a huge supporter of your channel. Just thought I could meet the folks behind the camera

      2. Robert Welker

        That wouldn't be our decision to make. The wives have final say. Just food for thought 😊

    45. doug valdivia

      ol bob is the fastest fabber around

      1. Robert Welker

        Until Legarms comes back. Then it's "dad... let me fab this.....OK?" 😁

    46. Robert Miller

      This is a whole lot fancier than the old Clipper 2B cleaner my Dad had on our farm. this is it...

    47. Brandon M

      Granted I had a hemi but my banks monster exhaust was excellent, very unique throaty deep sound

    48. Macentropist

      More ads please

      1. Robert Welker

        Sorry for the ad numbers. It seems if DEfasts is trying to make up lost profits

    49. Michael Geelan

      After watching the video I thought back to the few weeks I’ve spend out on the ice and how the ice fishing / spearing shanty drop frame I have would have been great for the unit. It’s easily portable and drops to a solid base with little effort. Check out the link ... here in WI there’s a few local shops that have built ideas.

    50. gray jack

      Never let a farmer use a torch, scrap steel, and welder! Trust me they will void a warranty in a heartbeat! P.S. I forgot garden hose!

    51. Jeff

      Awsome kids.. God Bless

    52. Big E

      Kiddos are so sweet. Cool video 👍😎👍😎👍

    53. Gerald Roth

      You guys are awesome. No challenge is too great.

    54. Logan Jeter

      What's a farmer's tool if it ain't modified

    55. Keagan Swenson

      Wouldn’t you want all the peas. More peas more money

      1. Welker Farms

        Typically yes but when we are making seed peas we want only the largest and most intact peas we can get to help with germination.

    56. Chrissy Francis8

      @TonyFast had QUITE the set up when he cleaned grain? I think, can’t remember. There were trucks & augers coming & going. I also learned everything I know about Hemp through Tony!

      1. Chrissy Francis8

        I know a guy that can clean up those 70s rims for you....

    57. Edward Jacobsen

      You guy’s are amazing fabricators

    58. TheWheelinranger

      Larson farms guys just had mpi exhaust out at thier shop doing thier pickups...they say those guys are out of montana

    59. Postal Ninja19

      What a great video! God Bless the Welkers.

    60. Bruce Irving

      McGyver has NOTHING on the ingenuity of farmers. "This doesn't quite fit what we need...... Now it does"

    61. Billy Roberts

      I am shocked u didn't try to put hydraulics on th axles so u could left the wheels all th way off the ground . So u can save ur back ?

      1. Billy Roberts

        @Robert Welker I hear ya but was a very cool build anyways

      2. Robert Welker

        Thought about it but this is only used once a year

    62. Ken Crouch

      I saw the MM U in the garage- good thing to see it is in side now!

    63. Jessica Saltzman

      Random thoughts from pitman pa and Saltzman Brothers Farms Inc. What about maybe putting a swivel wheel with a spring similar to a gate one on the bottom of the auger to take some tension off of the arm? Mrs James Saltzman

    64. LGL_137 No Name

      One assumes there's 220-V supply at the intended locations of use.

      1. Robert Welker

        Yes there is.

    65. Texas Marine Of Humble

      Nick, If you will go to Mike Millers site, and look at his video called "Cleaning Seed" you will see this unit properly set up and how it works. I could write it all in here but it would be better for you to see his setup.

    66. ken carr

      t is always could be ?? LOL

    67. Steve Nicoson

      Thanks for the video. This new machine you have is really interesting. I would think when you have it all figured out and setup, it will do the job for you. Does not look used, good going you were able to get your hands on it, good going Welkers!!! Like the modifications you are doing to it to make it mobile. Very good. All of you are very handy in the shop getting things figured out and most important, done!!! Thanks for showing us how it is designed to work. Bet it will do the job for you. When you have it completely ready, please show us the operation. This was a great video. Appreciate your time and talking us through the video. You all take care. Stay warm. Iowa farm boy from years ago.

    68. brittfarms2018

      Are yall gonna clean as it enters the bins from the trucks or go back later and clean and put into a different bin as it gets clean

      1. brittfarms2018

        @Robert Welker I had that feeling. I know nothing about peas..that not our area specialty this area have is wheat soybeans,corn, in my area

      2. Robert Welker

        The latter. We concentrate at harvest for harvest. Good question though.

    69. Clint Hochrein

      Pretty cool machine! you could also have your coffee with creamer stired an mixed drink on their also.

    70. Cheopis

      Someone else mentioned the goldfish below, but I am curious. I know some livestock farmers keep goldfish to put in water troughs and livestock water pools in order to keep mosquito populations down. Is that what you guys do as well? Keep a breeding stock in the warm shop overwinter, then restock nearby ponds and pools with the fish for the warmer months?

      1. Robert Welker

        No, I have a pond next to my deck. They have to go in 6 months of the year or they will be a martini fish ice cube.

    71. Art Ayers

      I hope that seed cleaner will do the job you want it to...

    72. scott wilhelme

      Build an ice shack chassis!!!

    73. iBelieve


      1. iBelieve

        @Welker Farms haha nice

      2. Welker Farms

        I was waiting for your comment! 😁 👍 👌

    74. Ashland Gun club

      Would you come get your weather, is laying in my yard drunk.

    75. Steven Owen

      Feed the grain into it with an auger with a screen built underneath it. Thatll sort out a lot of the undersize grain before it even gets to the cleaner..

    76. Ted B.

      Farm videos are always improved by kids.

    77. Marcus Kloepping

      Please buy some Loctite 290 wicking grade thread locker and hit every nut on that beast.

    78. GreenWarfare

      just thinking about something... if that frame will shake, auger mounted on that will shake even more and it may be unstable and spell grain around

      1. Robert Welker

        Possible. Will soon see

    79. bradh74

      Kids are cute!

    80. B C

      Hemp is easy to grow though. LOL

    81. Gierok Farms

      I love cleaning grain in the spring. We clean and plant our own oats!

    82. Outragous Bob

      Looks like gold rush Montana style!

    83. joe snyder

      Maybe an idea to build a square tube frame to mount on the bottom of the dryer then fabricate an axle with air bags that way you can just dump the bags to set it on the ground, then put trailer jacks on each corner to level it up.

    84. aXe

      Could you put two more jacks in the back corners and crank them down to level everything up when you get where you're going?

    85. Paul C. Sachse Jr.

      Might want to put some triangle gussets around the area where your A frame hitch meets the frame of the sifter.

    86. Powder River

      I’ve been through Great Falls, I too did some shopping there as well.

    87. J L

      18:53 the 44 year old rubber didn’t make it :(

    88. Ant R

      Sad for the hemp farmers

    89. Mathew page

      Lost me at Westfield augers

      1. Mathew page

        @Robert Welker the old Westfield augers we used are great but the couple new ones just weren't as good so we had a go at Meridian augers and its been unreal

      2. Robert Welker

        Curious. What is your favorite auger brand?

    90. adrian nicholson

      so it just a trammel

    91. Jonathan Sieck

      instead of having to take tires off every time when in use, fabricate a bracket with a pivot point and attach a hydraulic cylinder on each wheel that will lift and the lower the cleaner like some ice fishing shacks and car trailer/car haulers have, youll save time from having to use a jack every time

    92. 920ron

      U allowed to clean peas if u under contract with seed comp they won't allow it

      1. Robert Welker

        These are open market peas.

    93. Eric Kona Peper

      Just because your kids inspired me I let all the commercials roll out completely so hopefully you get better returns for it instead of skipping ❤️🇺🇸

      1. Robert Welker

        Thanks Eric. You're too generous with your time.

    94. Michael Dreksler

      After your visit to the Larsons, I was expecting a ride-on floor cleaner...

    95. mfanwe Likeit

      Shout out to Robert Welker and his fantastic comment answers!

      1. Robert Welker

        The answers comes from non best seller: welkerpedia 😊

    96. Gary Rhodes

      Finially see where you keep the gold fish for winter. Thanks

    97. Eric Bailey

      Can't wait to see it finished!! Good job, hope it works well for your farm!

    98. mfanwe Likeit

      Good to see you able to use your own seed

    99. f2535

      After welding axles on the cleaner Robert was ready to go rest, he was two tired!

      1. Robert Welker

        Nick wanted me to look at his truck muffler but I was "exhausted".

    100. Mike Bradford

      Need to send those wheels to Tony & let him polish them up!

      1. Welker Farms

        We've got a bunch for him to do!
