Example - 20 acres of maize wholecrop to bag - 20 x 18 tonne/acre = 380 tonne
For a 3.5m (12ft) diameter bag 380 tonne divided by 6 tonne/meter = 63 m bag, add another 20m for bagging machine and tractor/trailer, so for 20 acres of maize we will need around a 83m long by 25ft wide site and it will cost £2,280
Larger jobs could come down in price!!
We always have at least one spare machine in our yard so we can always get the job done
We have 3 qualified engineers
When we aren't out using the machines and in the winter, we strip our machines down and re-build them replacing many parts and keeping our machines in the best condition. This ensures we provide our customers with a dependable and reliable service.
We can bag on almost any surface, Rolled hard-core site is perfect but we do most of our work in fields, we can deal with fairly soft conditions but the harder it is the easier it is to get the material out of the bags!
What site is required?
Check out the table above, all our bags can be any size upto 150m, we can cut the bag at any length but longer the better as when we stop and start another bag it wastes around 10m of plastic
How much room is required?
More notice the better but if you book the job in through our office on 01363 82677 and give a rough date when your thinking, then when you think harvest is 1-2 weeks away, schedule the job with Doug on 07966 795 066 (then we can liaise with the harvest contractors to make your life easier)
How much notice is required?
YES our machines can keep any forager going constantly, we have got the highest throughput machines on the market and we will not keep any forager waiting
Can the baggers keep up with modern harvesters?
For us more the better, 3 trailers as a minimum (one more trailer than if you were filling a clamp is a general rule)
How many trailers do we need?
We also provide a crimping service
We have a high throughput Murska 2000 machine. We can dry roll into a pile or machine and can bag grain into a 6.5ft diameter bag.
