Formerly used to handle and store wood chips. Chips were dumped into a hopper where they were conveyed by way of bucket elevator to overhead conveyor belts. Chips could either be directed to bins inside the A Frame or to an outside stacker. Chips inside were conveyed to conveyor belts by way of traveling screws. Chips stored outside were conveyed to the A-Frame by way of a screw mounted on a turret to an underground belt and bucket elevator system.
