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.
Can I retro-fit these cones with older existing DARMANI flat bottom bins?

Yes, the galvanized cones will fit any existing DARMANI bin which shares the same diameters of their new bins that DARMANI manufactures currently. It is best to call and send a picture so that everything can be verified including door filler sheets as well as any stiffener upgrades that may be necessary.

Can I add a tier to my bins and then put them onto these DARMANI cones?

Yes, but that will be determined by the size and style of bin you are starting with. DARMANI manufactures the bin sheets and stiffeners required to extend your bins so that they are stronger than originally manufactured.

Do you I have to replace door with door filler sheets?

Yes, as the doors are meant for Flat bottom bins and the stress loads on Hopper bins increases and so it would be necessary to prevent any future damage that could occur.
