The Cone area is enclosed which provides protection to the farmer as bags or barrows are filled and provides protection to the cone area from weathering. The cone is accessed through a lockable standard (2.2m high x 102cm wide) door.
The storage area created can be used for storing bags of feed, farm implements or animal medicines. It is the perfect solution for isolated locations or where you are manually emptying the silo.
Enclosed silos also come complete with an inspection hatch on the roof and ladder guard to hold the top of your ladder in place.
V-Mac Silos are different, they use MagiZinc an innovative new metal that is more corrosion resistant that traditional galvanised metal to ensure maximum protection for your animal feed. The body is a rolled strip of MagiZinc steel interlocked at the edges which gives the silos its distinctive design. This provides a high strength, smooth wall on the inside of the silo to promote excellent product flow though the silo. V-Mac understand that every farmyard is different, this is why all V-Mac silos can be customised to ensure that the silo you buy is purpose built to your requirements.
