Tractor powered and self propelled compost and silage bagger from APIESSE with bags up to 3,6m

ROTOPRESS II is a tractor powered or self propelled compost and silage bagging machine designed to bag maize, grass,brewers grain, sugar beet pulps, tomato waste and other feed/byproducts in order to preserve the nutrient value in an oxygen free environment for feeding of milking cows, beef cattle, pigs etc

Storing of raw material, substrates for production of biogas is another way to use the ROTOPRESS II, since the effective, cost efficient and simple bagging process competes favorably to clamp or bunker silos regarding investment, loss of dry matter and operational cost

ROTOPRESS II can also be used in the environmental industry where composting and storing of waste is a suitable option for ROTOPRESS II equipped with a Composting Kit

Rotopress II advantage

  • Fastest machine to prepare for operation, one man only
  • No need of external cables to brake the machine

  • Possible to change tunnel diameters, only one machine for different type of demands

  • Bag very wet and humid products

  • Possible to install a "compost kit " and bag organic material for composting

  • Possible to fit bags up to 100 m long

  • With no external cables the machine doesn't have go straight forward

  • Internal cable inside the bag brakes the machine, in many situations very convenient

  • Best price/performance ratio on the market

Composting - storing - preserving - treating in bags


Composting - Storing - Preserving - Treating

  • low capital cost

  • low maintenance and operation cost

  • easy to install, operate and maintain

  • treatment of wide range of wastes using the same equipment

  • economically viable from small to large throughput

  • simply expandable to increase the plant throughput

Fast - flexible - efficient - versatile - profitable

Rotopress II models

  1. ROTOPRESS 1C - PTO with one auger - 80ton/h - max power 140hp(1000rpm) - low cost machine

  2. ROTOPRESS 2C - PTO with two augers - 120-130ton/h - max power 260hp(1000rpm) - professional machine

  3. ROTOPRESS 1M - Self propelled with one auger - 60ton/h - own engine 100hp (optional 126hp) - for limited space

Rotopress capacity depends on

  • power applied

  • type of product and humidity

  • total capacity of the harvesting team

Rotopress II - tunnel - bag diameter

For all ROTOPRESS models it is possible and easy to change the tunnel diameter (e.g. diameter 2,40 - 3,00 - 3,60 m) but the main body of the machine is the same
