Keeping a smooth face on a silage pit is crucial in reducing the risk of spoilage by reducing the surface area exposed to oxygen, reducing the risk of avalanches, and decreasing moisture catch areas.
Fliegl’s feed bucket offering recognizes the importance of a smooth face, and the company’s Nick Dale was on site at Agritechnica to talk with RealAgriculture, explaining exactly how the bucket works.
“We can go to the silage face, and we can mill the material off the front of the clump. By doing that, we keep a very clean face, which reduces any of the wastage and spoiling of the material, so we can keep it fresher and better cut of silage for longer through the season.”

The bucket mills silage off the front, scoops it off the ground with the bucket, and the auger can then deliver it in either direction.
