In 2005, a local grain producer, Gary Ruppert, began looking for a method to reduce the heavy lifting and increase productivity of the hectic harvest season. After enduring the constant in and out of a semi-truck to unload grain from the field, he began designing a device that would accomplish the auger repositioning process without the hassle he was currently experiencing. The result – The Swinger, which became a “lifesaver” for him and his neighbors, and dramatically reduced the excessive time required to unload the bin.

Gary retired from active farming in 2009 to devote full-time to manufacturing and modifying The Swinger. Over 1,200 satisfied customers can attest to the labor and time-saving benefits of this grain-handling innovation. Gary continues looking for ideas and innovations to help improve farm machinery for the grain producer.

In 2015, Swinger Mfg was acquired by JE Industries, LLC, an Iowa based manufacturer.

Now with over 5,000 units sold, discover for yourself how The Swinger has made grain harvesting much faster and easier for the producer. The Swinger increases harvesting productivity by minimizing the time spent and labor strains from getting in and out of the tractor or truck cab to move the auger hopper during the unloading process. The Swinger is definitely a must have product! Are you ready to make the switch like so many other farmers have? Contact us or order your Swinger online!
