IBCs to bulk bags

Recommended Posts

Hi, I process firewood into IBCs ready for drying, thats straight forward.  I have a problem unloading IBCs into bulk bags, how do you do yours?  after some ideas.

Currently I have a decent size hole in the bottom side of the IBC, lift above bag, tilt IBC and hand ball out into a open bag.  Not liking this method as labour intensive and I prefer to bag a couple of days prior to deliverying to stop mould.  Had a few mould problems last yr as some bag stock got mouldy.  Im liking the idea of tipping cages into a conveyor hopper and bag using a conveyor as seems more controllable.  or possibly tip ibcs into a tipping trailer thats at the right height and funnel the end.  Also need ideas on how to tip the logs out of the cages.    

      how do you do yours?  after some ideas.
