Reliable & versatile, they have proven their worth and left their mark.
Dion silage boxes need no introduction. Recognized and proven, they remain the farmer's favorites for any farm size.
Noted for their uniquely design beaters, they benefit from a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that allows for that precise unloading speed adjustment.
Across the range of available sizes, they have the advantage of being able to adapt to any loading and unloading conditions, thanks to an easy-to-use hydro-mechanical design and a remarkable efficiency. Versatile and configurable with a multitude of options, allowing them to meet the various needs of silage transportation.
The B58 boxes have impressive standard features, guaranteeing quality and durability.
Rigid and Durable Construction
The frame is made of heavy duty steel coupled with transverse reinforcement rods ensuring long-term durability. All Dion products are protected by a high quality powder coating and a sandblast preparation that ensures excellent adhesion. The side sheets, made of Galvalume®, offers a high corrosion resistance.
The low-friction polymer that covers the floor ensures clean unloading and long life.
Robust Conveyor Chain
The main conveyor features 4 heavy duty 667X or 667H chains, depending on the model, that offers a combined resistance of 60,000 or 40,000lb respectively. The welded slats prevent long term damage.
The lubrication points are grouped and at a reachable height. Verification of oil levels and chain lubrication are quick and easy thanks to direct access.
Front Unload Models
Uniquely Design Beaters
The elliptical beaters sweep the load continuously which allows for very uniform & fast unloading without an overloading danger. The roller chain side conveyor quickly transports the silage to the blower for a large capacity.
The silage box drive is engaged by a resistant triple belt which smoothly starts the side conveyor. The main conveyor is driven by a set of variable pulleys that allows the forward speed to be adjusted from 2 to 11ft/min. A hydraulic drive option is available (See options section).
Rear Unload Models
B58 boxes are also available in dedicated rear unload versions.
Driven by a hydraulic motor, unloading is fast. At speeds up to 17ft/min, it takes 1m30s to unload even the largest models. The rear door unlocks automatically when the conveyor engages and locks passively when stopped. A door delay closing system is optional.
The front and rear unload silage box is ideal for all farms and custom contractors. With either tower or pit silos, the B58 Combo integrates front and rear unloading capabilities. The conversion between unloading sides is done in less than 2 min.
