Silage spreaders and rollers in a new design

Silage loading technology

New model series of silage spreaders and silage rollers

When harvesting green forage, the bottleneck is often in the silo. Large forage harvesters and powerful loader wagons deliver large quantities of forage in a short time, which must be distributed and compacted in the silo as quickly as possible. If you invest in the right technology here, you will not only ensure the highest forage quality in the long term without reheating the silage, but also a smooth ensiling process. With its silage spreaders and silage rollers, MAMMUT offers the optimal solution for effective distribution and compaction in the bunker silo. NOW NEW – both devices, the SILO FOX silage spreader as well as the SILO KOMPAKT silage roller have been technically and optically revised and represent a strong unit in the silo. You can read about the details and new features of the 2022 series here in this article.

 

Silage spreader SILO FOX

Silage distributor ensures best forage quality

With the SILO FOX silage distributor, you can distribute the forage in the shortest possible time and reduce the layer thickness so that air pockets in the silage are avoided. The spreading process ideally prepares the forage layers for rolling, saving time in harvesting and increasing efficiency. Well distributed and compacted, lactic acid fermentation takes its course after covering and the risk of reheating in the silage is thus reduced. With the new model range of SILO FOX silage spreaders, MAMMUT sets new standards in terms of spreading pattern and working comfort. The most important changes are, for example, the standard equipment of all models with the water-fillable drums to increase the operating weight. In addition, attention has been paid to an even better crop flow – this is made possible by the improvement of some small details. You can see the most important features in the following picture and the corresponding descriptions.

Silage roller SILO KOMPAKT

Optimum compaction with the new silage roller

When compacting silage, the SILO KOMPAKT silage roller is an optimal addition for a powerful silage chain. The effective design of the discs achieves a high depth effect and thus first-class forage quality. The risk of reheating in the silage is reduced, as there are few air holes thanks to the solid forage layers and an evenly distributed silo is built up. During harvest time, good timing also plays an important role: if too little attention or time is given to compaction, the results often show up later in silo sampling or in mouldy spots after opening. With the SILO KOMPAKT silage roller, the impact force in the flat silo is therefore increased and the effectiveness increased. MAMMUT now presents both the rigid and the hydraulically adjustable models of the silage roller in a new design and with even more practical advantages:

The advantages in practice

Spreading and compacting silage - what is the real benefit?

Working in a bunker silo has a demonstrable effect on the quality of the forage. Silage samples show that reheating of the silage has virtually no chance with well-compacted forage and conscientious silo covering. With a swiveling silage spreader, the forage is placed in every corner of the silo and then well compacted with the aid of the silage roller. A powerful distribution and compaction unit has many advantages – we have summarized them for you here:
