What others are saying

“When you run it out in a line, the cattle are able to access it. The shy feeders can get right up and get a feed, and we’re also noticing the calves getting in and feeding on the silage as well.”

6 Key Benefits

1

CHAINLESS – no troublesome feed chains is a key advantage for – Reliability, lower maintenance and quieter operation, the teasing action of the rotors uses feed more economically, because it is easier for the cattle as they can eat it because it is fluffed up. The Chainless X2400 round bale feeder can effectively feed out any bale type in both round or square. Chainless is a virtually silent feeding operation which means stock are more comfortable.  

2

SNAPLOX – The patented, auto connect/disconnect self-loading system eliminate the twisting and strain on your back need to tug on a rope to disconnect, and eliminate the chance of a smashed rear window, should an inexperienced operator forget to remove the rope when disconnecting  

3

VERSATILITY – The patented Snaplox system makes it possible to mount the X2400 on a front loader, telescopic loader, skidsteer loader or the 3 point hitch providing extra versatility of use  

4

FEED ANY BALE – The new rotor shape and bale chamber design has better penetration on tight bales, frozen bales and square bales and the shape cleans sticky bales better. A patented new Axial rotor has more grip on sloppy, rotor cut bales which makes feeding them out easier and more efficient and centralizes the bale in the feeding chamber, reducing wastage. The larger bale chamber makes it possible to feed out a wider range of bales, and makes using the X2400 very simple for operators of all skill levels and reduces the need for platform adjustment.  

5

EASY CLEANING – The new Easy Clean Hypaflo wiper panel – The newly developed wiper panel that clears the hay from the rotors better. It has a new quick release latching system for releasing the panel to clean out any hay.  

6

NO BUSHES – Bushes in the drive system are one of the highest causes of frustration in maintaining a bale feeder. We pleased to announce that the entire drive system on the new Chainless X2400 round and square bale feeder runs on bearings, for lowest possible maintenance, less downtime and longer service life.

Rotor Teeth

Many hours of research and development has gone into the shape of the teeth to makes them clean easier, and have more aggression on tight bales. The X2400 has 4 teeth per rotor to provide extra grip on soft bales.

Loader brackets (1)

Loader Mounts

The headstock design allows for optional loader mounts to be bolted direct to the frame, allowing the feeder to be operated on a loader or telehandler. This provides hay and fuel savings when using the Chainless X2400 for feeding into bunks, TMR mixers, and hay rings.

square bale feeder tynes--featured-image

Tynes that pierce the bale

We’ve used specifically designed forged bale spears which pierce the bale rather than pushing it and are longer which reduces bale sag even with the wettest of bales, another innovation from Hustler.

round bale feeder dual latches

Dual Latches

High mounted connection latches on both sides of the feeder take the load off the cradle, which removes any load from the bale spears. This provides a more reliable, positive connection to handle the heavier bales it has been tested to handle.

round bale feeder unequal length tynes(2)

Unequal Length Tynes

We’ve made one tyne longer than the other for quick and easy alignment when reconnecting the cradle. You’ll only need to line up one tyne, then back straight in.

round bale feeder protected motor

Protected Motor

We’ve protected the motor from coming into contact with the tractor tyre, which can save you costly downtime and repairs when your tractor has short linkage arms.

Tie Point for Strings

We’ve included two grab bars, so you can tie the square bale strings to the platform. This saves the operator having to remove the strings before feeding out.
