Grain Gauges allow a farmer to know how full his bin is without climbing the ladder to look in. When filling the bins at harvest or filling feed bins for livestock, the farmer must climb the bin ladder to see how full the bin is to prevent overflowing the grain. The indicators are mounted to the bin wall and are pressure activated so when grain comes in contact with them, the color outside the bin changes to alert the farmer. Aging farmers or those suffering from pain in their shoulders, knees or hips will benefit from climbing the bin ladders less. Typically, the worker places a Grain Gauge near the bottom of the bin to know when it is nearly empty, near the top to know when it is nearly full, and at the very top to know when it is completely full.
