“You guys build it and then when you’re done take it apart with a wrench and try and put it back together with one…then you’ll know what a farmer feels like.”

We did. Then we made changes.
“TRACK-PACK” (10’,12’,14’ or dual 12’/14’ Silage Bagger)
PACBAG Silage Systems new TRACK-PACK machine takes an old technology and revitalizes it to meet today’s forage making needs. This new multi midsize silage bagger with hydraulic drive and track system instead of tires allows for excellent compaction, easier mobility and simpler operation. A full hydraulically driven system means the 375 CAT engine provides more than enough power. The excavator tracks not only provide better stability and drivability on any type of terrain, it removes the need for any other compaction system i.e. backstop, anchors etc. Another exciting feature is the 5th wheel hitch with removable air ride transport wheels. This means the silage bagger can be towed at highway speed.
We’ve made the system easy to maintain and on-farm upkeep as user friendly as possible: multiple bearings are the same size for ease of purchase and replacement; feed table belt is much simpler to replace if necessary; a ‘rotor bed’ was created allowing a farmer to lift and work on the rotor while still resting in the machine. Many more small details allow for not only a simpler operation but also simpler maintenance. A key component to the long life of your machinery.
Rotor bed – easy removal, work area, replacement
Feedtable – newly placed to ensure no loss of feed between table and rotor, easy lift, lock and lower
Tunnel – New clean out to ensure complete “clean out” from top to bottom
C9 – C15 CAT Engines & Hydraulic drive – Ensures 95% efficiency of operation of engine at all times
Tracks – better compaction, ease of mobility
Transport – Towing capacity removes need for trailer
