"I think it’s 100% better than the last model, teases it up a bit better and feeds out 100% better. The old one seemed to chuck it out in chunks and this one seems to tease it up a lot better, the whole chassis and everything is just a bit bulkier"
- Beef Farmer, Waitaki Valley, New Zealand. Chainless X5000
“Our in-calf rate is 8-10% better than it was previously, and this season is the first year with a zero postpartum mortality rate with all of our fresh cows. And I think that’s 100% because of the way we’ve changed our feeding! It’s been a fantastic investment and in two years it’s basically paid for itself twice, I’m really, really happy. I really like my Hustler feeder a lot”.
- Scott Merieka, Wisconsin - Chainless X5000
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 X5000 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.
The new rotor shape has better penetratration on tight bales and the shape cleans sticky bales better. The new Axial rotor centralizes the bale in the feeding chamber, so that there is less wastage. It has more grip on sloppy, rotor cut bales which makes feeding them out easier and more efficient. The larger bale chamber makes it possible to feed out a wider range of bales, and also makes using the X5000 trailed bale feeder very simple for operators of all skill levels and reduces the need for platform adjustment.
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.
Total Control 2 Loading system – gives you total control over loading the bale. The simple, reliable and fool-proof single cylinder design of the Hustler loading system is safer than other loading systems and allows unwrapping of the bale above the feed cradle, reducing waste. The Hustler loading system can be reversed if the operator decides not to load that bale. It also has more support area for soft or square bales. The X5000 square and round bale feeder has more leverage, stronger design and larger 1.5 tonne capacity.
