Manual Bag Filler

There are a variety of ways to fill bags with substrate without going to a fully automated system. The photo on the left shows a simple technique. The machine on the right offers another option. Please contact us with the details of your operation. We will help you get the system you need.

Hand filling.
The substrate is moved
to a hopper above the filler tube. The tube has a
flexible plastic collar at the bottom, so the flow
can be controlled by hand. The bag sits on a scale so
the operator can stop the flow of wet sawdust substrate
at the desired weight.

Motorized filler.
The above machine takes the sawdust or chopped straw
substrate from the hopper and feeds it into a bag or
tube with a motor driven auger. The motor can include
a foot pedal for variable speeds.
