Can you load bales the wrong way on a Hustler Chainless bale feeder?

A Hustler consultant, Jordan Cornes explains the answer to a commonly asked question; Can you load bales the wrong way on a Hustler Chainless bale feeder? You’ve asked and we’ve answered ‘YES’. Hustlers RND has spent many years to perfect the best design of Hustlers Rotors. The rotor teeth, twin rotor design and the table of the Hustler Chainless bale feeder is designed so you can feed out if you load your bales on the wrong way.

One question we are often asked about our Chainless bale feeders is, ‘Will your Chainless bale feeders feed my tight round bales if they’re put on the wrong way?’ The answer is yes they will! Now, what makes the Chainless bale feeders able to do this is: First of all our rotor teeth design, we spent many years of R&D work and getting the best design of our rotors. You’ll notice how they’re carefully tapered out to a sharp point which means that you get maximum aggression of the of the teeth onto the bale without damaging the quality of the leaf or the feed when you’re feeding high quality baleage. This also allows you to feed the tight round bales even if they’re put on the wrong way.
The other factor is our twin rotor design, so the top rotor spins three times faster than the bottom rotor. When feeding round bales the purpose of the bottom rotor, is to turn the bale to rotate the bale while the top rotor spinning three times faster, teases that feed off the the round bale. All the while, once again without damaging the pasture quality or the leaf on the on the bale. Now, the last factor that allows you to feed your round bales if they’re put on the wrong way, is the table. Now, the table is lifted up which increases the aggression of the rotors, which allows the chainless bale feeders to feed out your tight round bale even if it’s on the wrong way, right down to the core. So thank-you all, please like and comment and we’ll see you again next time. See you later!
