Following customer feedback, Co Antrim-based company, Blaney Agri has relaunched its Forager X10 round bale dispenser.
Sticking with the one man and one tractor operating concept, allowing the tractor to load, lift and dispense, the new machines have been re-engineered to be more robust, says the manufacturer.
In particular, the frame has been made 25 per cent stronger, drivelines have been beefed up and its safety guards are now 50 per cent stronger.
Other additions, designed to deal with difficult bales, include up-rated hydraulics, new feed-out spikes and a re-worked bale chamber. The firm says it is also more compact, allowing easier manoeuvring in and around buildings.
Also in the range is the X10L, designed to be used with loaders, and the X10W, which features an extra conveyor allowing material to be dispensed a further one meter, over trough walls for example.
Available now, the machine starts at £4,400, plus VAT.
