The Hopper Walker® is a 12-volt DC electric auger mover that mounts to your existing swing hopper. Use the remote control to position the hopper under your truck from the comfort of your cab. The Hopper Walker makes grain handling easier!

The Stop Sensors mount to the spout head retainer of your auger and will automatically stop the hopper at either the home or unload position. Keep one hand on the wheel and one hand on the shifter as you position your truck because the Hopper Walker® will automatically position your hopper. Fine tune the hopper’s position using either the remote or the joystick.
The industrial Remote Control fits in your hand and is easy to use while wearing gloves. The recessed buttons allow you to put the remote in your pocket without the fear of accidently moving your hopper. The breakaway lanyard lets you keep the remote close but gives you peace of mind if it gets caught on something.
Move the joystick in the direction you want the hopper to move. It can be mounted low enough so that you can adjust the hopper when you are closing the traps on the truck.
This button will cut off all power to the Hopper Walker®. It’s easy to use if you need to stop the hopper for any reason.
The Motion Beeper will warn those near the auger that the hopper is in motion. The Motion Beeper is only activated when the hopper is in motion via the remote control.
Smart association with the remotes allows multiple Hopper Walker® units to be operating close to each other without interference. Diagnostic lights are useful to quickly determine any operation issues.
Turn on and off from the remote control by toggling the on button. The light will automatically turn itself off after 20 minutes.
The two 12-VDC motors are powered by your tractor. An 8-foot Fused Power Cable directly connects to your tractor’s battery. The outside motor is geared to run at a faster RPM than the inside motor. The keyed axle shafts are mounted through the hopper's existing wheel holes using bushings, brackets, and lock collars. The wheels follow the factory hopper arc. The motors can be easily removed by loosening the anti-rotation bracket knob and sliding the motor off the axle shaft.
If you’re using a hook or a rope, where do you attach it? The further you are from the pivot point the better your leverage, that’s why we placed our second drive motor on the outside of the hopper. The outside motor runs at a higher RPM than the inside motor and still travels in the factory hopper arc as determined by the existing axle holes in the auger.
The Hopper Walker® drive tires mount in the existing wheel holes, keeping your hopper truly low profile. This allows your hopper to flex on uneven ground, leaving at least one drive tire in contact with the ground at all times.
The HM, Hopper Walker® Manual, is a Joystick only model.
With the H1 Model, we add one remote, work light, and motion beeper to the HM model. Position the hopper with the remote by pressing and holding the manual buttons. The auto buttons won't function with the H1 model.
The H2 Model features everything in the H1 kit plus two stop sensors, a second remote, and the functionality of the auto buttons to allow for hands-free positioning of the hopper.
