Always-sharp Saw tooth Knives deliver an even more precise pull-through chopping of long fibre fodder.

Counter-Blades

Counter-Blades with always-sharp Saw tooth Knives deliver an even more precise pull-through chopping of long fibre fodder. We equip our automotive diet feeder on customers request with additional knives, giving you the advantages of a shortened mixing time together with an even lower fuel consumption.

The Milling-Rotor leaves a smooth, sharp-edged surface on the face of the silage!

Milling-Rotor

With the specially angled and displaced withdrawal teeth, a smooth, sharp-edged surface on the face of the silage is assured. Even with a withdrawal-depth of more than 40 cm and low feed rate, there is no loosening of the silage-face and therefore warming is prevented.

The Teeth on the Rotor take the food with a rotation movement upwards. This enables an easy and more structure preserving withdrawal compared to a rotation downwards. Even food withdrawal from silage-bales, as well as bulk material, is possible.

The high-performance rotor with guiding-plates ensure a concentrated, loss-free fodder-flow.

Milling-Rotor

Because of the ejection performance of the rotor and through the use of guiding plates the fodder-flow during withdrawal is concentrated in a way, that there are almost no losses at all. With correct adjustment of the dozer blade to the rotor, a clean extraction without rests of food on the floor are no problem. The possible withdrawal height on the silage is 5 meters!

The three-auger mixing-drive ensures a gentle and effective mixing of your TMR

Mixing body

A careful and effective mixing of your TMR (total mixed ration) is handled by 3 counter-rotating horizontal augers with the top augers closed. The main auger is a new, ergonomically shaped, open stirrer-blade-shaft. This is equipped with newly developed, always sharp saw-teeth blades which make a pulling cut for a high lifespan and gentle mixing.
