Norstar - Model Express - Bin Sweep
From Bin Sweeps
Norstar's Express Bin Sweep is designed to provide an innovative combination of size and power that fits operations where a Farm Series sweep would be insufficient and a Commercial Sweep would be excessive. Powered by a motorized tractor drive and our SureGrip™ Gear Reduction Wheel, the Express has the force and traction needed for efficient clean-out. The sweep is operated by a Control Panel from outside of the bin and can be paired with our UL Listed Collector Ring for a true 'Zero-Entry' experience. Built for large farm and light commercial duties, the Express fills a gap in the industry as a sweep that can handle heavier workloads while providing high capacities without the cost of a commercial unit.

COMMERCIAL CAPACITIES AT A LOWER COST
Norstar's Express Bin Sweep is an innovative solution for operations needing more sweep capacity and power than what traditional Farm Series sweeps can offer. The Express offers commercial grade size and capacity at a more economical level than most commercial grade bin sweeps.
The Express Sweep combined with Norstar's Collector Ring Sump is a true zero-entry bin sweep. No pre-operation adjustments are required and there is no need to enter the grain bin at any time during the unload process.
UL LISTED COLLECTOR RING
Norstar offers an industry-exclusive UL Listed Collector Ring (recognized in Canada as well as the US). The Collector Ring effectively prevents twisting of the sweep power cables as the sweep circles the bin, making it unnecessary to disconnect and untwist the cables during operation. Norstar also offers a CE Certified Collector Ring for European operations.
DURABLE SKELETONIZED DESIGN
The Express features a skeletonized frame that is designed to allow the sweep to be completely wrapped by grain when buried, reducing load stress on the bin sweep and promoting long-lasting durability.
MOTORIZED TRACTOR DRIVE
The Express Bin Sweep's Motorized Tractor Drive provides you with sustained traction and power with its dual foam tires and the ability to adjust the weight on the drive.
PRE-SET CARRIER WHEELS
Norstar's Express Bin Sweep features a pre-set carrier wheel system that provides stability to the sweep as it circles the grain bin. This system requires no adjustment prior to operation, promoting a true zero-entry experience.
The SureGrip is Norstar's exclusive gear reduction wheel that provides increased sweep traction with its 18' vulcanized rubber design. With a 16:1 gear reduction, the SureGrip ensures positive traction and forward movement of the sweep into the grain.
Acquiring the correct belt tension for your Commercial Express is as simple as raising and lowering the unit's motor mount plate using its two set-screws.
Norstar uses an innovative auger fighting that features a thicker outer edge that allows you to move up to 100 BPH more than traditional fighting. The thicker edge also increases the auger's lifespan by over 50%.
STANDARD CONTROL PANEL
Norstar's Standard Control Panel offers basic operation efficiency with the ability to engage/disengage the sweep, forward and reverse as well as emergency stop functions. The Panel features overloads for all motors and is able to control up to two drives.
AUTO-DRIVE CONTROL PANEL
In addition to the features of the Standard Control Panel, Norstar's Auto-Drive Panel monitors the auger motor amps and will automatically move the sweep forward or backward accordingly.
COLLECTOR RING SUMP
Norstar's optional Collector Ring Sump provides the best in operational safety and efficiency with the ability to prevent power cable twisting during sweep revolutions around the grain bin. Norstar offers an industry-exclusive UL Listed model (recognized in Canada and the US) as well as a CE Certified model.
PIVOT & SUMP OPTIONS
Norstar also offers a standard corded sump with a variety of receiver and pivot options to suit your needs.
TRACK STRIPS & PARK PLATES
Protect the floor of your grain bin using Norstar Track Strips and Park Plates minimizing floor wear as the sweep circles the bin.
