Ag-Bag, a Miller St. Nazianz, Inc. Company, announces the release of the brand new Ag-Bag
MX1012 Commercial Silage Bagger.
Ag-Bag held a dealer meeting in Madison, Wis., in mid-March to introduce the MX1012. Following a technical presentation, the MX1012 was unveiled and each attendee was provided an opportunity to climb aboard the machine and speak directly with the design and marketing team about the MX1012’s unique and innovative features.
"Our name, Ag-Bag, is synonymous with the silage bagging industry," says Taylor Weisensel, national sales manager for Ag-Bag. "Our pull-type Ag-Baggers are the industry standard, and we have the largest, highest-capacity 14' bagger in the X1114 Professional. There is a segment of the market, in the 150- to 750-head dairy operations, where we had a product line gap. Today, we are fully meeting the silage bagging needs of all sizes of dairy operations with the launch of the MX1012 Commercial silage bagger."
With its convenient interchangeable 10' and 12' tunnels, users will appreciate the features designed into the MX1012 to make it easier to operate. The tunnels can be changed without the use of tools, and the newly designed bag boom and cradle not only lifts the bags into place but is also used to lift the tunnel and tunnel extensions without the need to climb up on the machine, ensuring greater operator safety.
Among the extensive list of new features, another standout is the hydraulically retractable tunnel floor, designed to make cleaning out the tunnel easier than ever. Upon filling a bag, the tunnel floor is retracted and the last of the silage falls into the open bag without the operator having to physically crawl into the machine to clean it out.
The MX1012 was on display at the Wisconsin Public Service Farm Show at the EAA in Oshkosh, Wis., March 27-29, and was met with an enthusiastic response. The MX1012 will be on display at major ag shows through the summer and fall of 2012.
