AGI introduces next-gen, high-capacity auger series at 2023 National Farm Machinery Show

Winnipeg, MB, February 9, 2023 – Ag Growth International Inc. (“AGI”) has added the next-generation of hardworking, swing hopper augers – the AGI Westfield MKX 2 and AGI Hutchinson-Mayrath HX2 series – to its lineup of high quality, portable grain handling solutions. These new augers, designed for fast delivery of grain into bins or trucks, are being introduced to U.S. farmers at the 2023 National Farm Machinery Show (Booth 7423), February 15-18 in Louisville, KY.

“We are excited to showcase this next-gen auger series to farmers and dealers at the show,” said Matthew Manness, AGI Director of Global Product Management for Portable Material Handling. "The auger may be one of the most hardworking pieces of equipment on a grain operation. They tend to run long hours at high capacities during harvest and spend most of their time exposed to the elements. So, they must be durable as well as reliable. AGI engineered these next-gen augers to extend lifespan, reduce downtime, increase serviceability, and provide high-capacity output and efficiency.”

Manufactured in Rosenort, Manitoba, AGI’s MKX 2 and HX 2 augers deliver affordable versatility and high-capacity performance with a wide range of options to suit diverse farm and yard conditions. The AGI Westfield MKX2 auger features an A-frame hydraulic lift system and the AGI Hutchinson-Mayrath HX2 auger features a scissor hydraulic lift system. These efficient augers are available in 10-inch, 13-inch and 16-inch diameters and lengths from 36-feet to 125-feet with capacities up to 23,000 bushels per hour.

Farmers and equipment dealers will discover engineering innovations that improve serviceability and boost durability.

  • Innovation. The design of the new open-end discharge spout is industry leading. Featured on all AGI Westfield MKX 2 and AGI Hutchinson-Mayrath HX2 augers, the discharge spout delivers a faster, more efficient flow of grain reducing horsepower requirements up to 20 percent.
  • Serviceability. Easy-to-access service points allow for quick inspection and maintenance of hopper u-joints, chains and bearings. Larger access and clean-out doors on the boot provide easy entry to internal gearboxes and bearings.
  • Durability. The AGI Hutchinson-Mayrath HX2 augers feature Abrasive Resistant (AR) flighting in high stress grain transfer areas. AR lasts three times longer than regular flighting, saving time and money to replace worn out flighting. The AGI Westfield MKX 2 augers feature Wear Edge TechnologyTM in the hopper flights, transition flight, swing tube flight, and lower flight. Tapered bearings increase lifespan along with hanger bearings that support the lower flight. These bearings reduce noise and enhance the assembly process. Augers 84-feet and longer feature steel tube trusses which add strength and stability.

“With a focus on continuous improvement, AGI has made important design changes to optimize auger efficiencies and simplify workload for both farmers and equipment dealers. AGI will be displaying the Westfield MKX 2 and Hutchinson-Mayrath HX2 augers at next week’s National Farm Machinery Show (Booth 7423),” said Manness.

All augers come with a wide range of options including hydraulic hopper winch, X-Tend hopper, X-Over hopper, electric and hydraulic power swings, 1000 rpm speed reducer, LED work lights, steerable axle, right angle drive kits, transport lights, and more.

For more than seven decades, AGI’s Westfield and Hutchinson-Mayrath brands have led the auger industry by improving the efficiency and bottom line for farmers. AGI’s portable grain handling equipment offers an industry leading two-year warranty and is manufactured with quality materials and features that provide value and performance.
