Farmer upgrades to SL360X after feeding 6,000 bales with his SL350

For this Manawatu based dairy farmer, absolutely rapt with the performance of his 7 year old SL350, upgrading to the new SL360X model was simple. All he wanted to know was, would the Patented new Snaplox connection system work on whatever terrain he had… 

Who likes a trouble free operation?  Well for this farmer back in 2009 that’s what he was wanting when he invested in a Hustler SL350 bale feeder. Fast forward 7 years and approximately 6,000 bales later and it’s still going strong everyday and what’s more… Trouble free!!


Taking delivery of the new SL360X which automatically connects and disconnects without having to yank on a rope has made his life more trouble free!  Our happy customer was keen on an upgrade as he had seen the new SL360X and decided this was the machine for him. Even easier to use!!


Snaplox – Patented. Simple. Trouble-free.

The unique patented Snaplox function on the SL360X allows the operator to disconnect the feeding cradle from the headstock by lowering the machine to the ground, it’s seamless and fool-proof.

This is a great development that comes from Hustler listening to farmers, responding to their needs and Rethinking the Everyday. 

With the SL360X no longer will you:

  • Strain your back and shoulders from twisting to tug on the rope of a traditional feeder
  • Smash the back window of your tractor because you’ve forgotten to disconnect the rope
  • Need to juggle the forward/reverse shuttle, clutch and rope all at the same time to disconnect. 


The dealer traded the old SL350 and says the machine needed a good clean, grease and a touch up of the paintwork and it would be ready for sale again, to another farmer wanting trouble free feeding out!
