BAGGING & PACKAGING BUYERS' GUIDE AP7000CW Double-Head Wicketed Bagger The Ag-Pak AP7000CW is a double-head wicketed bagger with integrated check weighers. This fast machine can bag and weigh 5-pound portions of potatoes at rates of up to 50 bags per minute. Standard bag sizes are 2 to 20 pounds. Other bag sizes may be run with modifications. Two individual collectors feed dual bagging heads. Each side of the AP7000CW can be run separately, making bag changes easy with no downtime. A separate check weigher sits directly behind each bagging head. The check weighers immediately check portion weights. Filled bags are fed to a rear cross conveyor which can send bags to either side. Rejected bags are deflected from the conveyor. Kwik-Lok closers are standard. Multiple printing options are available. Reliable and rugged, the AP7000CW is has a robust design featuring stainless collectors, heavy-duty components, a UL- listed electrical cabinet, and a small footprint.
