LARGE CAPACITY SILO FOR HIGH PRODUCTION
The SPEC MIX® Ten Bagger silo is ideal for the largest projects where high production at the mixing station is not a luxury—it is a necessity to meet the project’s scope. With up to a 10 bulk bag capacity, this silo feeds the largest crews for a longer period of time, yet its simple and compact design makes it easy to use on the tightest jobsite.
With the SPEC MIX system, every raw material is factory preblended, packaged in heavy-duty bulk bags and dispensed into the Ten Bagger silo on site. There is no sand to shovel or pallets of bags to lift, break and discard. If the project requires masonry mortar, grout, concrete, shotcrete or stucco, the Ten Bagger system will produce the product quickly and consistently to increase profits while decreasing a contractor’s labor and product liability.

A DOUBLE BATCH OF MATERIAL IS MADE IN 5 MINUTES OR LESS WITHOUT STRAINING THE LABORERS OR COMPROMISING THE INTEGRITY OF THE MIX. NO ELECTRICITY OR PRESSURIZED WATER SOURCE IS NEEDED FOR THE TEN BAGGER, JUST A STANDARD MECHANICAL BATCH MIXER. THE SILO IS TRANSPORTABLE. AS THE JOB PROGRESSES, THE CREW AND TEN BAGGER MIXING STATION FOLLOW. THIS IS HOW IT WORKS:
STEP 1: To erect the Ten Bagger on site, make sure the ground is dry, level and compacted. With a 26 foot (7.9 m), 4,500 lb (2,041.1 kg) capacity standard forklift, insert the forks of the lift into the Ten Bagger’s fork pockets and raise the unit to the desired height. Four heights are available.
STEP 2: Using the double leg pins attached to the frame, secure the upper silo assembly by sliding the leg pins into position. Then secure the pins with the safety hitch pins. Next, attach the slide or valve gate handle in its place and get ready to load your SPEC MIX product into the silo.
STEP 3: The bulk bags are easily loaded into the silo by inserting the forks through the bag’s reinforced loops. Once the bag is above the silo and in position, the laborer standing on the safety platform can release the bag’s double discharge chutes.
STEP 4: After the silo is loaded with up to 10 3,000 lb (1,360.7 kg) bulk bags, place the batch mixer beneath the cone under the silo’s boot. If needed, trim the length of the boot to the top of the mixer. To make product, add the desired amount of water to the mixer and pull back the silo handle to dispense the amount of material needed to achieve the preferred consistency. Any size batch can be made. Let the product mix according to product instructions to ensure complete hydration of all materials for optimal workability and board life.
STEP 5: The Ten Bagger is easily relocated on site to position your mixing station as close as possible to the work, maximizing jobsite efficiency. With the silo legs pinned in the up or down position, insert the forks of the lift into the silo’s fork pockets. Then, raise the silo and place the Ten Bagger in the preferred location. Make sure the forklift is equipped to safely transport the silo and that the new terrain is dry, level and stable. Always secure all leg pins and safety pins!
