Grain Bagger FAQ

How high moisture product can be put in the bag? ​ While it is possible to bag grain that is above 20% moisture content, it is not recommended since it will be very difficult to extract from the bag later.

How many folds of grain bag do I need so the extractor can hook up properly? ​ 7 folds should be enough.  There should be at least 6' of bag left beyond the end of the grain pile to allow for closure and hooking up to the extractor.

Can I pull the bagger with a 1/2 ton truck? We recommend a 3/4 ton or larger truck to pull the grain bagger on the highway.

How high should the lift axle of the grain bagger be set? ​ The grain bagger should be set to whatever works for the conditions you are currently in.  More slope on pan angle will improve the feed out function of the bag.  Too much slope may cause large portions of the bag to feed out at once, making kinks in the bag that may lead to tearing later.

How high should the pan be set? ​ The pan should be lowered till it is no less than 2" off the ground in working mode.  None of the underside components should be dragging in the dirt or it will negatively affect the performance of the machine.

What is the maximum road speed for transport? We recommend a maximum speed of 80 km/h when towing with a truck.

How much travel does the swing auger cylinder allow? ​ The swing auger has a telescoping distance of approximately 9'.

What is the total length of the swing auger? ​ The total swing auger length is around 20'.  14' for the auger and 6' for the tub.

Can a 500' bag fit on the Neeralta Grain Bagger? ​ Yes, machines from 2012 and on are able to hold 500' grain bags.
