1. Safety
General Safety Statement
Our foremost concern is your safety and the safety of others associated with grain handling equipment.
This manual is to help you understand safe operating procedures and some problems that may be
encountered by the operator and other personnel.
As owner and/or operator, you are responsible to know what requirements, hazards, and precautions exist
and inform all personnel associated with the equipment or in the area. Safety precautions may be required
from the personnel. Avoid any alterations to the equipment, which may produce a very dangerous
situation, where SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH may occur.
You should consider the location of the bin site relative to power line locations or electrical transmission
equipment. Contact your local power company to review your installation plan or for information
concerning required equipment clearance. Clearance of portable equipment that may be taken to the bin
site should also be reviewed and considered. Any electrical control equipment in contact with the bin
should be properly grounded and installed in accordance with National Electric Code provisions and other
local or national codes.
This product is intended for the use of grain storage only. Any other use is a misuse of the product.
This product has sharp edges, which may cause serious injury. To avoid injury, handle
sharp edges with caution and always use proper protective clothing and equipment.
Sidewall bundles or sheets must be stored in a safe manner. The safest method of storing sidewall
bundles is laying horizontally with the arch of the sheet upward, like a dome. Sidewall sheets stored on
edge must be secured so that they cannot fall over and cause injury. Use care when handling and moving
sidewall bundles.
Personnel operating or working around equipment should read this manual. This manual must be
delivered with equipment to its owner. Failure to read this manual and its safety instructions is a
misuse of the equipment.

2. Safety Alert Decals
GSI Group recommends contacting your local power company and having a representative survey your
installation so the wiring is compatible with their system and adequate power is supplied to the unit.
Safety decals should be read and understood by all people in the grain handling area. Decal (DC-GBC 1A)
on Page 9 should be present on the inside bin door cover of the 2 ring door, on the cover of the 24" porthole
door and on the roof manway cover. DC-1224 and DC-1225 or similar decals, should be present on
the bin. Please contact the dealer or factory for free replacements. All decals must be replaced if they
are destroyed, missing, painted over or can no longer be read.

3. Grain Spreader Assembly Instructions
1. Carefully unpack the unit and inspect for shipping damage.
2. Check tightness of all bolts in the cone and blade assemblies.
3. Select the proper number of diverter segments required. (See diverter segments chart below.)

NOTE: The various types of grain, moisture content, bin diameter and capacity of fill auger are all
conditions that impact the evenness of spread. Some experimentation is needed to attain the
ideal spread pattern.

4. Installation
Grain Spreader Installation
1. Adjust hanger extensions to fit roof opening and install the power spread unit.
2. Use the 9/32" hole at the end of each hanger extension and bolt hanger extensions to hatch collar.
3. Tighten all bolts holding hanger extensions.
4. Once unit is installed, use a carpenter’s level across the top of the spreader cone to confirm it is level
in all directions. (See Figure 4A.)
Figure 4A Mount Spreader and Check with Level
5. If the unit is not level, add spacer washers between hanger brackets and hanger extensions to level
unit. (See Figure 4B.)
Figure 4B Use Washers to Level Unit

4. Installation
Grain Spreader Installation (Continued)
The Scattergrain 1/2 HP motor is protected with an internal automatic reset overload.
Before servicing, all power to the unit must be disconnected and locked out to avoid
WARNING a possible re-set/re-start and serious injury.
Before connecting and applying power, rotate the spreader blade by hand to be
certain it rotates freely without obstruction. The motor turns the spreader blade
counterclockwise as viewed from above the unit. The power spread unit requires
115 volt power supply. The minimum wire size is 14 gauge for runs up to 200'. It is
advisable to provide additional protection such as 15 amp slow blow fuses or
20 amp circuit breaker. Consult a licensed electrician for wire size on longer runs.
Regardless of grain type and bin size, the grain flow must be directly down (vertical)
and centered (horizontal) within the spreader cone. (See Figure 4C.) This must be
done in order to prevent high and low grain surface areas from one side of the bin to
the other.
Figure 4C Grain flow must be centered within the spreader cone.

5. Instructions
Operating Instructions
The grain spreader blade assembly has four (4) features to adjust the grain flow pattern.
1. Tilt adjusts the entire spreader blade, which controls overall grain spread. To adjust tilt, loosen the
two (2) U-bolts that allow the blade to tip up and down. This may vary according to bin diameter and
fill rate. (See Figure 5A.)
Figure 5A Adjustment of the Tilt
2. Spreader diverters (grain guide baffles) are used to increase or decrease grain flow resistance over
the spreader blade. With the diverters straight, the grain will travel farther. Angled grain diverters
shorten the throwing distance. (See Figure 5B.)
Figure 5B Four (4) Features for Adjusting the Grain Flow Pattern
3. Blade extension is used when extra throwing distance is required for larger bins.
4. Dampers are used to control center filling.

2. Be sure to fully tighten all bolts after each adjustment is made.
3. These adjustments describe the requirements for both extremes of bin sizes. For bin sizes between
24" and 36" in diameter, start with intermediate adjustments and vary slightly as required to reach
desired results.

6. Maintenance
For normal operation, annually re-lubricate both motor bearings with approximately ten (10) drops of
5W-30 oil. The gears of the gearbox assembly are lubricated with a special high temperature, food grade
lubricant (SPD-2109) at the time of manufacturing. The level of grease in the gearbox should be checked
annually and will not normally require further lubrication unless seal breakage occurs. After the grease has
settled to the bottom of the gearbox, the grease level can be checked. The grease level should not be more
than 1/4" below the vent plug. (See Figure 6A.) It may be necessary to insert a wire through vent plug hole
to determine the grease level. The grease level also can be checked by removing motor and viewing
grease level through the hole for the motor pinion gear.
Inspect seals annually for signs of leakage (check bearings annually for tightness).
In the event the motor fails to start, check power supply to the motor. If power supply exists and motor still
fails to start, disconnect power and check blade for freedom of rotation. If power does not exist, check for
blown fuse or flipped circuit breaker.
If motor stops operating for no apparent reason, wait approximately 5 minutes for the automatic overload
protection device to reset and reattempt operation. If problem continues, check power supply for voltage
and check blade of unit for freedom of rotation.
If motor pinion requires removal for any reason, it must be properly installed and located, as shown in the
parts assembly on Page 18.
Figure 6A The gear box assembly showing grease level.
WARNING
Disconnect power supply before attempting any type of service. The motor is
protected with a self-resetting overload protection.
Failure to disconnect power can result in serious injury or death.
DANGER

PNEG-258 Scattergrain Grain Spreader
7. Troubleshooting Guide
Correct Spreading Pattern
Grain is slightly depressed in the
center. Grain flow is centered and
the spreader is level.
Trouble
Large doughnut shaped ring caused by
grain hitting high on bin wall.
Probable Cause
Illustration
Tilt blade downward, decrease bite.
Remove blade extension.
Spreader blade too flat
Grain is high in center of bin, small
dough nut.
Flatten blade, increase bite, decrease grain
flow to spreader. Add blade extension.
Spreader blade too steep
Grain is high on one side of bin.
Level spreader, correct grain flow to
spreader, (never allow grain to flow into
spreader at an angle or off center).
Not level, not centered
