Offset Silos

Why Use this Silo

The V-Mac Offset silo is ideal filling into loader buckets or snackers.  The design incorporates a large funnel approx 1m wide where it joins the main body of the silo reducing down to a 16 inch bagging spout with reducer.

  • Large inspection window on cone.
  • Access hatch on the cone (18 inch diagonal).
  • Sight glasses – one on the cone and one on the silo body above. the cone.  Extra sight glasses can be fitted upon request
  • Large funnel design of the discharge chute provides for optimum flow of feed from the silo.  The funnel design of the offset means that the full weight of the feed is pushing out through the discharge chute.  This reduces the possibility of feed sticking in the bagging chute.
  • You can fill loader buckets or snackers simply by driving up to the silo and pulling the discharge lever.
  • This silo is ideal for piping into sheds allowing you to discharge inside.

Silo Customization

The outlets on your V-Mac silo are at standard height, however we can raise or lower these to suit your particular requirements.  (E.g. some customers prefer the auger connection to be at a certain height to suit their parlour set up.

Double doors (enclosed silos only)
We can install double doors on your V-Mac silo given you 70-inch-wide access under the cone. This can allow you to fill a loader bucket or with extra height give you somewhere to store a Quad!

Again, these are usually on the front right leg of a legged V-Mac silo or on the right of the door on an enclosed silo. However, we can position them wherever suits your particular needs. It is always worth checking to see how the meal truck will access the silo and where is the best position to site the pipes.

We can fit 10-inch pipe installations to your V-Mac silo which can allow you to fill bags, buckets or loader buckets.  The obviously work better with some product, like pellets as against wet mixes like blends or rations.  They are connected higher up on the side of the cone so they will always have to be emptied out of the bottom of the cone.
