Cyclone Silo grain storage
With the grain marketing landscape becoming more and more challenging, successful harvest management can add significantly to farm income. One way to improve harvest management is the flexibility provided by on-farm storage, and the smart on-farm storage choice for the serious grain farmer is Cyclone.
Bill Onslow of M O Industries Pty Ltd in Tamworth recommends, and installs, Cyclone silos. “With the wheat market deregulated, being able to store grain on-farm is a huge advantage that puts farmers in control. Having 24/7 access to their grain storage gives farmers freedom of choice when it comes to managing harvest, transport and sale”. Bill works closely with farmers to design a system that will meet their requirements well into the future. “Cyclone silos are made to order, in Australia, which means I can design a system that suits the farmer, not try to sell them whatever stock the manufacturer or importer might have left over”.
Manufactured in Australia from high quality galvanized steel, Cyclone silos are built tough for Australian conditions. The wide corrugation profile of silo walls and lack of internal obstructions can reduce the risk of “hang-ups”, which can harbour insects and fungi, and lead to grain spoilage. The advanced design, and heavier gauge steel sheets at the base, enhances the strength and stability of Cyclone silos, and the optimised roof slope maximises the amount of poured grain that can be stored. Cyclone silo dealers can incorporate unloaders and aeration equipment to meet your particular needs.
With individual silo capacities ranging from 350t to 1,720t our experienced installers can design a grain storage system for any sized farm.
So, why are Cyclone silos the smart choice for on-farm storage?
Derek Stabb, of Silo Services Pty Ltd in Macedon, who has a long established track record in providing grain storage solutions using Cyclone silos explains, “Farmers understand that harvest management plays a big part in the success of a farm. On-farm silos provide the flexibility that lets farmers choose when they harvest and when they sell. They aren’t tied down to office hours, and this can make all the difference when it comes to getting crops in before the rain, or making that premium sale on a weekend”. Derek believes planning for the future is important. “My golden rule is to get on-site with the farmer and paint a picture of the future, as system that not only meets their current needs, but can also grow with them. Cyclone has a range of silos that lets me design a solution to satisfy any size of farm, their “upgradable” design allows more flexibility, and being local, I know I don’t have to wait months for upgrade parts or accessories to arrive”.
Peter Murphy, of Young basedOptimum EngineeringSolutions, reckons Cyclone silos’ reputation for long lasting quality is well deserved. There are Cyclone silos that I installed over 20 years ago still in service today. I can design a storage solution for a farmer that will serve them well into the future and which will protect their grain without the need for added costs such as fencing, or constant replacement of parts”.

David Barlow, from Jerilderie Grain Storage & Handling, sums it up like this “Cyclone silos give us the flexibility that allows us to maximise market opportunities”.
A view echoed by James Cummins of Yarrawonga who has had seven Cyclone silos installed over the past five years and has been delighted with the results. “We started with two Cyclone silos. They paid for themselves in no time and so we were able to install five more sooner than we planned. On-farm storage with Cyclone has given us greater control and has certainly paid dividends”.
