FAQs
Why are customers saying that the Darmani lid is the best in the industry?

Easy to open – Easy access – Wind resistant – Venting

The lid is an important part of the bin and the average lid causes much frustration as a result of a poor design. We understood that good lid design was crucial in the overall design of the Darmani lid. Unlike competitors, our lid features a track mounted, roller bearing design for easy open and close operation. Our standard 52” lid opens up all the way, accommodating larger augers, unlike competitor lids which open up only partially. Designed with a catch in both the front and back, means when it comes to wind and moisture, our lid outperforms competitors’ lid designs. Optional venting, controlled from the ground, can eliminate the need for some additional roof vents on some bin models.

IMPORTANT NOTE: When running fans in cold temperatures, ensure vents on the lid or other roof vents are clear to avoid roof damage.
How do your bins compare with Westeel regarding gauge and features?

Gauge to gauge, with the exception of a few models are bins are heavier as we have updated our current designs giving them more steel where required so they can handle higher stress loads. Darmani does offer many value-added features. Click a link below for more details.

Do you offer a Skylift for your hopper bins?

Yes, our Skylift mounts on hopper bins. Skylift is easy to install and priced much less than traditional staircases.

Note: one Skylift with the connecting platform can do two bins so it makes it safe and cost effective.
How do Darmani hopper cones compare to Westeel and other competitors?

Darmani premium hopper cones are the best available. Pound for pound, steel for steel, Darmani offers a stronger yet more efficient design, featuring more legs and more support braces than all competitors. See the comparison chart for more details.

How does the weight of Darmani bins compare to Westeel?

When comparison gauges of steel, the weights will be very similar in that we use there is standardization in weights of gauges versus actual weights based on the galvanized coating and sheet size. That being said, our bins are generally heavier than our competitors due to heavier steel in stiffeners and bottom sheets as well as in both the door and an advanced lid design.

How do your complete bin packages compare in price to competitors?

Bushel to bushel when comparing the same size of the bin, because we sell direct, our Hopper bins are a lot less. When all is said and done, across the board you will see savings on all of our bin models versus our competitors if you compete “apples to apples” as not all hopper bins are created equal. (Click for complete comparison details) We offer factory direct pricing eliminating the costly traditional dealer/distributor marketing sales approach.

How do Darmani bins fit on other manufacturers hopper cones?

Darmani hopper mount grain bins will fit most manufacturers’ bins. As we can switch out sheets to our competitors our hole spacing and sheet dimensions are manufactured similarly.

What do I need to set up my own bin package?

Unlike our competitors our roof peak rings come with added strength value so all of our bins can be lifted from the top roof. You will need some sort of lifting device. Depending on both size and availability, you will need either a bin crane, picker truck or bin jacks. For more details, go to articles.

Why is it important to have ladder protection on taller bins?

Not only is it safe, but it is also the law in some parts of Canada. Our Skylift offers an elevator platform with a cage enclosure to ensure safety. (See related article)

Why are more and more customer choosing Darmani hopper bins?

To sum it up: savings and a unique, diverse product offering that is cost effective. Our Hopper bins come standard with heavier gauge sheeting, stiffeners and feature the best lid money can buy.

Our Hopper cones have a 40 DEGREE SLOPE, a re-inforced slide gate and are easy to transport Grain storage is one of the most important parts of grain farming as it protects the farmer’s investment. Long term grain storage is equally important to the bottom line. Great savings are found in a factory direct sales approach–manufacturer to the end user, eliminating the middle man and avoiding the need for the dealer/distributor approach that our competitors still use. Darmani offers all the service you need including leasing and financing with one simple call. Offering both flat and hopper bins provide customers with a one-stop-shop for all their grain storage needs.

What are the advantages of leasing bins?

Leasing grain bins is one of the only ways to save on taxes. Unlike most purchases, such as a combine/tractor or air seeder, grain bins and buildings don’t depreciate leaving customers with little to no write offs. Leasing also frees up cash flow as the payments are smaller, freeing up cash for other necessary on farm purchases. Using Darmani’s Wholesale Lease Program offers customers not only a fast and easy transaction, but excellent rates as well as *pre-pay discount.

How can I protect my bin from wind damage?

Darmani tie down anchors will offer the same wind protection as if it was concrete mounted.

Note: by using tie down anchors, the savings in the insurance rates alone will pay for the anchors.
How does your air lid remote opener work?

Simply operation right from the ground. The operator can easily open and close the lid and the optional venting on lid (if applicable).

Our air lid accomplishes four things.

  • Easy to open/close: uses a track mounted roller guide
  • Easy access: our lids are easy to fill with a 52″ opening
  • Wind resistance: has a catch on the back and front our lid
  • Venting: our air lid has venting built right into it. An operator can aerate bin with the air lid closed eliminating snow build up from roof vents.
IMPORTANT NOTE: When running fans in cold temperatures, ensure vents on the lid or other roof vents are clear to avoid roof damage.
Are your bins resaleable?

Unlike cement models, Darmani bins with steel skid foundations can be moved and are 100% re-saleable.

Are Darmani grain bin packages insurable?

All of our bin packages are insurable similar to bins with concrete floors because we include tie down anchors as standard equipment with all of our bin packages.

Do you offer RTM (ready to move) hopper bottom bins?

NO, we stopped offering RTM hopper bins for the simple reasons that bins are getting bigger and when you sit down and do the math by the time you add in pilot cars it is more cost effective to assemble on site.
