Duffel Top Bulk Bag Filler
This duffel top bag filling frame is fabricated of one-quarter-inch thick, three and four-inch square tube steel and features two six-by-four-inch fork pockets at the base for ease of moving into place.
To use this device, first place a pallet on the loader, then thread all four bag lift loops onto the holder arms. Adjustment may be necessary to obtain the correct height for the bag you are filling. The rule of thumb is to have the bag suspended so that the corners are approximately three to four inches up from the pallet, allowing the bag to stretch properly without any folds or leaning.
Adjustment is easily accomplished by removing the hitch pin while holding the arm, adjusting to desired height, then replacing the hitch and safety pins for each arm. Recheck for proper height.
Now that the bag is leveled and centered, the duffel top may be pulled back to allow material to enter the bag. Once the bag is full, the duffel can be pulled back together and tied and a forklift can enter the pallet, lift slightly to relieve pressure on the lift loops, and simply back out of the frame.
This unit can be integrated with a spread base allowing the use of a pallet jack as well as many other options.
