Learn About the Ultimate Bagger™ sandbag filling machine
The Ultimate Bagger™ is proudly manufactured in the USA by Burcham Baggers LLC, a wholey owned subsidiary of The Sandbag Store. Sandbag Store owners, Chris Haas and Steve Burcham, began their business in 2005, shortly after their military service ended. Their business of filling sandbags for the local community was a complete success and quickly they realized the sandbagger machine they purchased was not capable of producing the number of bags they needed. Deciding to develop their own equipment, a conveyor style filling system with a sewing head for closing, was invented.

It would be 12 years of product development and good olí trial-and-error before they began offering their custom made sandbag machines to the public. These early machines, called Burcham Baggers, helped hundreds of businesses and governments automate their bagging process over the following years. Customer feedback and on-site observation of the Burcham Baggers in use, led to significant design improvements. In 2019 the Ultimate Bagger debuted at the National Hurricane Conference to great fanfare. These new bigger, stronger, faster machines could fill and seal sandbags at awesome speeds. They included massive agitators, patented flow control designs, and dynamic vibration control to conquer the impossible: bagging wet, sticky sand.

When Burcham Baggers LLC was formed, Chris and Steve wanted to make their machine manufacturing company unique. When they hired their first employee, they required military experience. Slowly, a team of veterans was formed. Today, every Ultimate Bagger is produced by US veterans. Some of these employees are fully service disabled and the company makes all necessary arrangments to accomodate these American heros. These veterans have filled sandbags in combat, and take their bag filling machine business very seriously. In short, there is not a higher qualified team of sandbag machine builders, than the vets that manufacture the Ultimate Bagger.
