Weidemann Ireland offers the right solution for every task

The specialists at the corn silo

In agriculture, Weidemann machines are widely used – what could be more obvious than that in the last few years their use of biogas plants has almost naturally derived. Of course, if a machine is already on the farm, it is a pleasure to exploit its full potential and with the appropriate attachments, the operations for the biogas plant can be covered.

Thanks to the promotion of regenerative energies, the construction and operation of biogas plants is now well established – a good source of additional income for many farmers, in addition to the farm’s main focus.

Even when building biogas plants, a powerful wheel loader or telescopic loader can be put to great use. The daily filling of the plant and the removal at the corn silo are easily completed by a machine of suitable size. As a multitool, the machines can also be used for cleaning the attached silo installations, for transporting tarpaulins and weighting materials as well as for other maintenance work “on the board”.

Activities and applications in biogas plant

Here are some examples of how and for what a Weidemann machine can be used.

Remove silo

The lifting height, stability and the turning circle are decisive for the silo removal. With the comprehensive range of machines from Weidemann, differently dimensioned biogas plants can be operated with the right machine.

The introduction of solids is one of the recurring tasks on a biogas plant several times a day. Depending on the size of the machine, Weidemann offers a variety of different blades, grabs and pliers that are suitable for filling the system. Especially the manoeuvrability and different loading heights of the Weidemann machines offer real added value.

Transport work

All things that have to be transported on a biogas plant can be moved by a Weidemann machine. With the appropriate attachment tools, such. Pallet fork, various shovels or grippers grasp and lift the transported goods absolutely safely. For storage in racking systems, the lifting height and stability play the decisive role.


Weidemann machines can be equipped with various sweepers, weed brooms, high-pressure cleaners or brooms to remove dirt of any kind. Especially with an easy-to-attach push bar, the silo plate can be cleaned quickly and easily. Keeping your production line clean and efficient.

Grounds maintenance

Every biogas plant has green areas that need to be mowed regularly. Here we recommend the Weidemann machine in combination with a sickle mower, mulcher or a flail mower with drip tray. Also available are pruning saw, hedge trimmer or double knife mower to cut hedges, bushes and trees.

Winter service
Depending on the model, Weidemann machines can be equipped with various snow blades and rear spreaders. This will give you valuable support during the winter service to clear the terrain and the access roads of snow and ice.
