McHale expands its feeder/bedding machine range

Due to customer demand, McHale has produced two new types of its feeder/bedding machine, the C460, to include a mounted version and one which can handle two 1.5-metre-diameter (5ft) round bales.

In all three cases, the feeder/bedding machines can be used to feed short fibre silage or to distribute long fibre fodder, such as hay and straw.

 

Each machine can handle round or square bales and share a number of features.

 

One key trait is the twin speed gearbox which allows the operator to adjust flywheel speed from 280rpm, for feeding silage or hay, up to 540rpm to distribute straw for bedding. The 1.57m diameter flywheel is fitted with six blowing paddles.

 

Speed of conveyor is also proportionally controlled, allowing the operator to adjust feeding speed depending on material density and desired output. From the conveyor, a feed rotor, equipped with 48 blades, feeds the material into the flywheel.

Secure

The machine’s chute offers 300-degrees of rotation, blowing straw up to 18m (59ft).

 

Its body also narrows at the bottom, holding materials securely while keeping an overall height, says the manufacturer.

 

All control is done via a box in the cab which takes care of conveyor speed and direction, tailgate position, rotor comb movement, rotor engagement and disengagement. A joystick looks after chute position.
