"Rugged, reliable and made-to-last: Three catch-phrases, which apply perfectly to the diet feeders from the manufacturer Hirl-Technik. Experiences from the own agricultural holding and the requirements of ever-expanding dairy farms were here bundled and finally lead to a machine of the premium-class." topAgrar 7/2011 (transl.)
top agrar long-tested a T1100 H self-loading horizontal mixer with 10,5 m³ capacity over weeks at two agricultural holdings in Styria, Austria, as well as in Burgenland, Austria.
The T1100 H was reviewed with the following equipment:
On the first long time test trail in Buch near Hartberg, Austria, 30 milk cows were given once a day a partly mixed ration (PMR). Additionally their offspring is fed until the age of ten month every second day with basic fodder provided by the mixer-wagon.
The PMR consists of 50 % corn-silage and 50 % of chopped grass-silage as well as a feed pellets mix, straw and molasses. The ration for the non-lactating cows consists of equal parts of silage and straw. At the moment a self-loading paddle mixing-wagon is used. Compared to that, the time savings with the HIRL T 1100 Horizontal are impressive. On average it took 17 minutes for one feeding round and while this, the fuel consumption was 2 litres of diesel. The HIRL T 1100 H was propelled with a 75 HP tractor, which must be said, should be the absolute minimum for operating a mixer this size.
Second test-trail: At the cow byre of the family Krutzler in Loipersdorf (Burgenland, Austria) are roughly 130 milk-cows, which are milked by two milking-robots. At the moment, a self-loading two-auger mixing wagon with 10 m³ provides the cows with food, as well as 160 young cattle. Mrs Krutzler, who is in charge for the feeding, was especially impressed with the performance of the milling rotor. Furthermore she was very fond of the tidiness during withdrawal as well as the complete withdrawal from the ground.
Our mixer-wagon T horizontal convinces with a withdrawal depth of 45 cm and a withdrawal height of 5.5 m. up to 2 tons of silage can be milled.
For this high withdrawal performance and for a gentle care of the food, the upwards rotating milling rotor is responsible. The blades of the rotor are hardened on the outer zones, whereas the inside remains its toughness. This results in high stability and therefore, the blades are therefore not likely to break.
Aside from the classic withdrawal of fodder in the clamp silage, the mixer wagon can also be used for the milling of silage-, hay- and straw-bales. Spent grain, CCM and compound feed can be taken direct from the ground with the milling-rotor. Liquid food or water can be metered with a sideways mounted input gate. Also, a calcium-carbonate-straw-bedding can be mixed and spread with the Hirl T Horizontal
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. On request, variable adjustable counter-blades can be installed in the mixing-tank. These grant a better dissolving of long-fibre fodder, resulting in a shorter mixing period and less consumption of fuel.

The new high performance technology consists of a Milling Arm with a 1.7 m wide milling rotor (diameter 64 cm) with maintenance-free rotor, driven by two 160 cm³ hydro-engines, each propelled by a casted triple-pump. For smaller tractors two 125 cm³ hydro-engines with a slow ratio planetary gear train are available.
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 is possible. 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 is no problem. The possible withdrawal height on the silage is 5 meters!
