Game Changer Conversions

Tested to perfection:
Increase Your Capacity Substantially

We can convert your Continental 161 Saw Gin Stand to a 181 saw gin stand, and increase your capacity to over 20 bales per hour for significantly less than the cost of a new gin stand. We can also convert your 141 to a 161 using the same process. This video shows the game changer 181 running in Abbeville, Alabama; cruising at 21 Bales Per Hour. We will change out your rib rail and put a new one in. We will provide new space blocks and end plates, and include Game Changer ribs. For more specific information on Game Changer conversions click the MORE link and scroll through our blog.

Gin Rib

Superior Performance:
Reliable, strong, advanced

We offer ribs for most gin stands on the market today. We are working on a Consolidated Rib for the 2015 season. Our ribs are precision machined from 1018 steel forgings. They have been running in high capacity gins all over the world since 1994. We are now offering the "Game Changer" rib for Continental Gin Stands.

Jet Dryer

High Efficiency:
Lower Power Requirements

The power requirements of most drying systems on the market today are really off the chart and unnecessary. Most systems use way too much CFM and because of this, heaters that are way too big in terms of BTU's have to be installed.
