From Grainews: Grain bag unloading made simpler

Neeralta Manufacturing at Neerlandia, north of Edmonton, has this year introduced a new grain bag extractor, that not only unloads nine- to 12-foot wide grain bags but also wraps and ties the plastic into a handy bale for easy disposal — all in one easy operation.

The new extractor is available in both trailer and three-point-hitch models, says John Wierenga, who looks after sales and marketing for the family owned manufacturing business.

“It is the same machine, but is available in two transport models depending on a farmer’s needs,” he says. “Each unit comes with a self-contained hydraulic pump and reservoir, so it is easily handled by a 90-horsepower tractor. It doesn’t take much power to run it.”

For more information on the extractor or grain-bagging system read the full article from the current issue of Grainews (), or visit the company website.
