Silo

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Silo

Postby JRS » Mon Aug 09, 2021 8:58 pm

Has any one ever torn down a silo to move and reassemble at a different location . I found a small 25ft no top . I heard the Amish fill them with sand and drop one block at a time down

Sand or sawdust.

Probably not. It would take a lot of sand or saw dust to fill any size silo.

Youtube on silo assembly or disassembly.

Did help uncle drop a silo. Not many salavageable pieces when it toppled.
I have an excuse. CRS.

You don’t “fill” the silo. You put about a 3 foot layer around or inside the silo to cushion the impact when the piece lands, one at a time. Sawdust cushions better than sand.
