International Harvester 5088
I took the following photos of an International 5088 on one of my friend’s farm up in Canada.

He has a custom operator do the haylage.

Re: International Harvester 5088
@JDeere: some things are natural to you, but forte the people
for instance TasCowboy dont know that. becauce they don't store silage in silo's.

maybe you have some photos of a unloader ?

Re: International Harvester 5088
This is a silo unloader. The box jutting out to the lower left contains an auger which sits on top of the silage and pulls it to the middle. There a little blower blows the silage up through the white funnel (horn) which directs it out a door and the silage then falls to the ground or floor. (all these stave or concrete silos have 1 meter square "man-doors" all the way from the ground to the top of the silo). The auger slowly rotates around the silo so the top layer is taken off evenly and little air can penetrate and spoil the silage.
When the silo is empty the whole unit is hooked to a cable and pulled to the top of the silo where is just sits until it's needed next year. In the old days you had to climb up into the silo every day and throw the silage through the door with a silage fork (similar to a pitch fork).
The blue Harvestore silos you see along the road are different. They have a sweep arm at the bottom of the silo which rotates and uses a chain to expel the silage.
Hope this helps.

Re: International Harvester 5088
Thanks Geoff & Charles ;-)

We dont have these setups here in Tas, silage is done either as rolls & wrapped (individual rolls or as a sausage / tubeline) or precison chop in a stack or pit.

Regards,

TC ;-)

Re: International Harvester 5088
of corse,i forgot.
this one is from Patz.
TC,the Harvestores are bottom unload with a special Harvestore-made unloader,wich is the only one wich can be used.
the forage also has to meet certain cond.,like verry short and even cut plus dry enough so it dosent freeze in wintertime.
