The Patented DBAR Adjustable Grain Cushion Box

Finding reliable, cost-effective ways to minimize grain damage poses an ongoing challenge for the grain handling industry. LCDM offers an innovative DBAR adjustable cushion box that’s revolutionizing the grain flow equipment industry.

The DBAR features a patented design that reduces grain damage by more than 50 percent — and in some cases, the box eliminates damage entirely. Less grain damage means a more productive and profitable operation.

DBAR Adjustable Grain Bin Cushion Box Features

The DBAR is ideally suited for grain-on-grain cushion box applications where the grain legs are not operating at total capacity, as well as for times when you need to vary the capacity of the spout between full and half-full. The self-cleaning inner cone also produces excellent results during operations with a high risk of cross-contamination.

Finding reliable, cost-effective ways to minimize grain damage poses an ongoing challenge for the grain handling industry. The LCDM DBAR Cushion Box is a great solution, and features:

Manual Operation Rack and Pinion Slide Gate
Adjustable Baffle

An adjustable baffle allows you to customize the level of cushion for the grain to meet your specifications.

Gear Drive Operation Rack and Pinion Slide Gate
Versatility, Durability and Convenience

The cushion box’s construction works well for full or partial-capacity situations. The heavy-duty 8-gauge body with a hot dip galvanized finish ensures reliable, long-lasting performance in all operating conditions and environments. The design eliminates the need for flow retarders in the middle of the spouts, contributing to the ease of installation for the millwright.

Electrically Actuated Rack and Pinion Slide Gate
Easy Maintenance and Replaceable Parts

Two conveniently located oversized service doors make cleaning a breeze. Checking for and removing foreign objects, dust and debris is a fast, straightforward process. Replace inner components as needed to ensure a long service life for the cushion box.

Liner Options

A wide variety of liner options are available, including blue urethane, Kryptane and Extreme Green. Our three liner options are:

  • Low-grade: Blue ¼-inch urethane
  • Mid-grade: Red ¼-inch Kryptane
  • High-grade: ¼-inch Extreme Green

Hopper Slide Gate Bottom Adapter
Extensive size range

Stock sizes range from 8 to 20 inches

Fast Installation

The box is easy to set up with minimal time and labor required for installation.



Using the ideal liner for your cushion box allows you to extend the overall life of your unit. Keeping several extra liners on your shelf allows easy replacement during an emergency without additional downtime. We send you all the necessary hardware for quick and easy liner installation.

No competing cushion box on the market can match the DBAR’s versatility and quality — not to mention the ability to minimize grain damage. While most models only provide grain cushioning when they run at total capacity, the DBAR adjustable cushion box offers the same benefit for operating at reduced volumes. A standard cushion box cannot produce a sufficient cushion to protect the grain. You can use this option for a broader range of applications without concerns about material damage.

The most essential DBAR cushion box benefit to a grain business owner or project manager is the superior quality of the grain. You’ll lose less product to damage, making your entire operation more efficient and cost-effective. You’ll also get more usable grain at a lower expense, which will positively impact what matters most — your bottom line.
