Default filling a bagger with an auger??

Does anyone here use a long spout on their swing-away and use it to fill a grain bagger? Thinking putting all my oat bags close to the yard this year and was wondering if this works good.

We did it the first year we bagged just ended up putting 3 regular spouts together. It worked ok had the auger straight in front of the bagger. You could do a whole tandem load with out moving the auger but now they make longer spouts that you should be able to get more. The grain cart works the best.

We bag lot's of grain every year in the field with a grain cart. Ravens like to terrorize the oat bags and I plan on seeding lots of oats this year. So I'd like to put the bags where the dogs can chase.

I think if you buy the really long spout it would work better. If you have enough people have the truck dump into the cart at the yard then fill fill the bags I think that would be easier as long as the trucks can get to the combine.

Used an auger for a couple years before the grain cart showed up. It worked good, but was a bit more temper mental than straight from the cart.. Made up a spout out of an old threshing machine discharge spout, and tied it up to the auger on the end of the flexible plastic spout. If you get a spout that extends and retracts it works best, as the length changes quite a bit between the start/end and when the auger is directly above the hopper. For moving the swing away ahead each time, tied a rope from the swing auger to the step on the tractor to pull the swing away each time we moved. Also put a rope and a weight between the auger and bagger tractor, and had it set so when you got far enough ahead for the next load, the weight came off the ground. I saw a video of someone using an auger with the auger steer on it, and drove the swing auger beside the bagger. Seemed to work good in the video. Good luck, your dogs will be busy chasing the ravens away!

There was a guy on the prairie farm report that builds real long spout used for this.

Svensen Toboggan Co. Ltd.

This guy makes them. The last time we did it I used our batco conveyer with the long spout then I only had one tractor to worry about it worked well.
