The paper deals with the research in concentrated feed conveyer productivity based on the constructive solutions of the conveyer. The research is performed in a laboratory using a spiral conveyer based for cow feeding and made by the DeLaval, Inc. For the purpose of this experimental research the conveyer is combined and transformed into a snail conveyer. During the research the authors established that the conveyer productivity changes at the constant pitch angles if the conveyer mode is changed. Thus, for example, the conveyer in a spiral conveyer mode at the uplift of 0 degree is more productive than a conveyer in a snail conveyer mode whereas at the uplift angle above 20 degrees the conveyer in the snail conveyer mode is more efficient than the spiral conveyer. This peculiarity results due to the backward pour out of the conveyed load through the middle part of the spiral
