AgLand Industries is a Canadian owned and operated company located in eastern Canada in the province of Quebec.
AgLand was founded in 2001 by a group of innovative young men that transformed their ideas and expertise into a leading manufacturing company of agricultural crop equipment.
AgLand Industries Inc. is on the leading edge in designing and manufacturing quality agricultural forage equipment that is recognized world-wide for its cutting edge technology and integrity
“The leading edge in designing and manufacturing quality agricultural forage equipment.”
The AgLand Macerator 6620 has been designed to improve the quality of the green hay bales. The macerator has a cam pick up to direct the swath (windrow) into rubber rolls for feeding into a set of steel serrated rolls for maceration.
Equipped with an air pressure system to set different levels of maceration aggressiveness, the AgLand Macerator 6620 gently cracks the stem of the crop allowing stems and knots to dry quicker than conventional crimping.
Used extensively across North America, Europe and Australia; and among a wide variety of crops including millets, alfalfa, timothy, sorghum, corn and grasses, the Agland Macerator 6620 continues to provide farmers with an efficient solution to increase crop quality and value.Download Brochure Find a Dealer

Features & Benefits
More Thorough Than a Conditioner
The AgLand Macerator features a double set of rollers, allowing for a more thorough job than other systems. The pickup reel feeds the crop to the rubber intake rollers where the swath is flattened out before it is fed through the steel patterned rollers. The air pressure system helps maintain an even pressure on the rollers without crushing the hay.
Maceration takes place between the steel rollers. The top steel roller runs at a slightly different speed than the bottom roller. This action cracks and nicks the stems of the plants and removes some of the wax, resulting in cell rupture. This allows the moisture to escape at a quicker rate than with conventional equipment, promoting a much faster dry down.
Preserves Nutrients and Colour
The AgLand Macerator 6620 allows for a faster dry down time to minimise exposure to the sun and maximise the retention of nutrients and colour in the crop.
Maceration helps to soften the hay, preserves the protein content and exposes more plant sugar to allow more efficient silage fermentation, making all of the hay more palatable and increasing the digestibility of the hay or forage, which may translate* into:
