Established in 1991, DB Contracting has 3 x 10-foot bagging machines and a grain bagger (which does 2M bags, also useful for Trafford gold and pressed pulp. This allows us the flexibility needed to fit in best with site size, crop stage, weather windows, and your forager contractor.
Our baggers are delivered on-site either by artic low loaders or by tractor depending on the size of machine and job location - We cover the whole of the UK.
Once set up, the silage trailers reverse back to the hopper of our bagging machine and tip directly into the hopper, the 10-foot baggers can unload a 14-tonne trailer in roughly 5 minutes.
Bag lengths can be any length up to 80 meters in 10-foot diameter. Baggers pack 28 - 30% DM silage at around 5 tonnes/meter. Please note: all bag capacities are approximate. Capacities vary based on many factors, including the type of forage, or grain, moisture content, chop length, etc.
Once a bag is filled or the job is completed we remove the bagger from the bag and seal the end of the bag with a sealing strip, making the bag airtight within minutes of the last load going in.
The DB Contracting AgBag system puts unlimited, low-cost storage capacity exactly where you need it. AgBags can be placed for easy access allowing the feed to be removed with a front-end loader or be self-fed. AgBags store a wide variety of feeds, grains, crop residues and by-products. Feed rations can be blended and balanced. The low investment cost can significantly raise profit margins.
