bag packing design
The Ag-Bag design is unparalleled in its ability to uniformly and
consistently pack silage into bags. The Ag-Bagger s rotor is extra
wide and positioned low. Bags are filled from the bottom up with
the massive rotor pushing the silage back and up to maximize the
fill and minimize the air. Silage in an Ag-Bag bag reaches the point
of anaerobic fermentation faster than in other types of storage.
The Ag-Bag MB 9,000 and MB 10,000 makes bagging fast and easy. The
MB 10,000 bagger can easily put away all the volume from two high
capacity self-propelled choppers.
MB 9,000 features a 9' rotor and a 12' tunnel.
MB 10,000 has a 10' rotor and a 12' tunnel. A 14' tunnel extension
for corn silage is also available.
Ag-Bag bags up to 500 feet long

volumes can vary based on density and type of silage.)
Bag Boom, Cradle and Bag Pan
The MB 9,000 and MB 10,000 baggers feature an on-board hydraulic
crane that allows the operator to install both the tunnel extension
and a new Ag-Bag bag.
The convenient bag cradle can be lowered by the crane to retrieve
a new bag.
The bag pan is raised and lowered hydraulically, providing easy
and fast bag installation. (see next photo)

heavy duty rotors
Rotors are designed extra wide to pack away huge volumes of feed
more uniformly and with consistent density while eliminating air
voids and putting more silage in the bag.
A dual anchor system allows the bagger to maintain a consistently
packed bag. The anchors can be extended or contracted hydraulically
to obtain the density required.
easy view of the operator are gauges to monitor and help control
the density of feed in the bag.
bags have stretch gauge marks provided continually along the bag
length to help ensure consistent packing.

Baggers can be equipped with applicators for Ag-Bag liquid or granular
inoculants to initiate rapid and effective fermentation.
The MB 9,000 and MB 10,000 baggers were designed with safety in
mind. 2-wheel air brakes and transport lights are standard. Machines
can be folded to a transport width of 8.5' or reconfigured back
into the bagging position in just minutes.
