Agromatic Inc. releases Big Foot Forage Packer

Published on 08 May 2014

Agromatic Inc. has released the Big Foot Forage Packer, which can be used in both bunkers and on silage piles to pack the feed firmly, thoroughly and efficiently.

The product improves feed storage capacity as well as improves feed quality by reducing spoilage, the company says. It also allows dairymen to make the most of their bunker space.

The company has been marketing silage packers for several years now, and the new model has some significant improvements, including more PSI per wheel, a lower center of gravity for a better line of sight, bearings that can be replaced without removing wheels and Deep-Pac smooth transition wheels.

The new model also features an automatic lubricating system and integrated stand that allows level hitching. All models are standard quick-hitch compatible. Category 3, 3N, 4, 4N configurations are available.

Five sizes are available, ranging from five to 11 rollers with weights ranging from 3,855 pounds to 14,640 pounds. Prices range from $7,400 to $14,700.  FG
