Ground Pile Systems

Grain Storage Bins

The Haskins Company has a number of millwrights that have been with the company up to 40 years. The long history of knowledge and experience has a huge impact on the training and growth of our future millwrights as they are learning the skills and gaining experience in the trade.    

The Haskins Company has constructed a number of unit train load out and receiving terminals. These facilities are located in an area stretching from eastern Washington to eastern Montana and south into Wyoming and southern Idaho as well as eastern Oregon. These facilities consist of high capacity legs and conveyors feeding a multi garner bulk weigh system. 110 car unit trains can be loaded in a 10 to 12 hour window.

General Construction

Ground pile systems are a great alternative for bulk storage. A bulk pile can hold from half a million bushels to two million bushels.

Asphalt pads are put down for minimal waste and easier cleanup.

Tarps are used to cover the piles while being while the grain is being stored.

A aeration system is installed under the product to create suction to hold down the tarp system so the wind does not destroy or remove it. Anemometers can be installed to activate the aeration system when the wind reaches a certain speed.

We supply a variety of dust management systems:

  • Dust collection
    • This type of system collects the dust and stores it in a collection bin for resale or disposal.
  • Dust control
    • This type of system collects the dust and introduces it back into the product handling system.
  • Bin top and machinery mounted
    • Bin top units collect the dust and pulse the fines back into the bin.
    • Machinery mounted units collect and pulse the fines back into the unit.
  • Most systems have a bag style media filter that removes the fines out of the air, a timed pulsing system of compressed air removes the fines from the media filters.  

Material Handling

We can provide and install a variety of shapes and sizes of premanufactured bins from any of several manufacturers. If you are looking for portable storage, we build our own tilt bins in our fabrication shop to meet your needs.


  • 60° hoppers for dust bins and easier clean out
  • Roof vents
  • Welded on lifting eyes
  • Truss mounting brackets
  • Access hatches in roof and hopper
  • Ladders and safety cages
  • Fertilizer storage

The Haskins Company constructed our first steel grain storage tank in 1950.  Since that time we have constructed over 1800 steel bolted tanks and corrugated steel bins as well as concrete slip form elevators and steel flathouses.

We have designed and built grain storage facilities in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and North Dakota. These projects have included everything from single bins for added capacity, to truck stations, 110 car shuttle train facilities and barge loading facilities
