IL near StL
This is an 80 going into an 8 ring 30 footer. If you look close you can see that the auger is actually dumping into a box above the hole that the leg also drops into. In short, 80' foot auger should be fine going a ring higher than mine.
ETA, wouldn't try a 70 and if you use a calculator on a mfg site, don't forget to account for a raised foundation and if for example there is a slope running away from a bin and your auger is actually on the downhill side of grade. Bought a 70 one time for a different bin and didn't account for all of that, it worked but traded for an 80 the next year.
