COMMERCIAL HOPPER TANKS
For an Exceptional Value, Chief Commercial Hopper Tanks are the Smart Choice!
Commerical hopper tanks from Chief Agri Division offer the same ease of installation and unparalleled strength found in the Chief commercial grain bin line. Engineered from the highest quality materials, they provide the long term reliability and satisfaction youve come to expect from Chief.

G140 (450 g/m2) galvanized coating is standard on all roof panels, sidewalls and stiffeners for superior corrosion resistance.
Utilizing a four panel per sidewall sheet design, the "V" rib roof provides standard peak load capacities of 3000 to 7500 lbs. (1364 to 3409 kg.).
A 45º bottom hopper cone and a 16" (40.64 cm) discharge opening are standard with Chief commercial hopper tanks.
Chief hopper tanks are backed by a 5 year limited warranty and one of the strongest names in the industry!
