          VDL Agrotech has developed a synthetic
        hopper, FlexBin, for the Valenta pan feed-
        ing  system.  The  FlexBin  only  weighs  4.5
        kg, making it a very easy to handle hopper.

              Advantages of the                     Mounting profile
                 FlexBin are:
          • Easy to handle synthetic funnel
          • Weighs only 4.9 kg (compared to 14.1
          kg of the steel hopper)
          • The contour of the feed is clearly visible                           Galvanized cover with handles
