The new SL300X bale unroller, a little brother to the SL360X, replaces our popular SL350 bale feeder. Born out of necessity, bred with Hustler DNA, the new SL300X is 3-point-linkage and loader ready, but you’ll need to pull a rope to disconnect. It has the toughest chain/bar setup on the market, and covered shafts just like its big brother.
"After three feed out seasons and about 2000 bales we're pleased we changed to the SL-350, as it has been very reliable, an important feature for our one man operation"
- Sheep & Beef Farmer, North Canterbury, New Zealand. SL350
"We think the world of the SL-350, we feed between 7-800 bales per year through it to our suckler beef herd. I would say at a guess that we have owned our machine for at least 6 years which means we’ve fed out approximately 4-5000 bales, we only use rounds. Length, width of the machine is perfect for operation and all our feeding is done indoors, alongside feed barriers." "We have never had to replace any parts, I asked my father and he said the only thing he can remember going wrong was a 'grub screw' on one of the bearings came loose. We mostly feed over the right hand side of the machine, because I am right handed and control levers are on the right of tractor cab, so prefer to do it my way. Although the Bales will still unwind if they are on the wrong way around, but it just takes a little longer." "As I said, it’s a brilliant machine, we could never be without it since we changed over to all Round Bales, from pit silage."
- Adrian Williams, Mid Wales, UK - SL-350
3 point linkage and loader ready, utilising a new headstock design with bolt on brackets, you get to choose if you want it mounted on the front or rear or a tractor or loader, and it can be offset to allow more tyre clearance when feeding into bunks or troughs.
Toughest bars and chain on the market is bullet-proof and lasts the entire life span of the round bale feeder. Super strong roller chains with the combined strength of 24,000lbs, with tough 40mm x 40mm zinc-plated bars. Bars are bolted to the chain, a stronger and more easily replaceable system.
Tough new Thermoform fully enclosed polyethylene floor with covered drive shafts which eliminate wrapping. It’s non-corrosive, impervious to UV, slippery and shock resistant.
Low maintenance. Just 4 grease nipples is all it takes to maintain the SL300X round bale feeder, that’s because instead of bushes we use longer lasting fully sealed block bearings, mounted outboard to keep them clean and free of damage from acidic silages juices.
The sl300x round bale unroller has floor bars that are 4-5 times stronger torsionally than angle type bars of the same size. We’ve bolted them to the chain which is stronger and for different bale types, blank bars or bars with more aggressive teeth are available and can simply be bolted on in a matter of minutes without breaking the chain.
Our 6 tooth sprockets are made from Bisalloy (the same material used in a bulldozer blade) so they last forever. With smaller diameter sprockets less torque is required to drive the chains, giving more drive power for tough bales. Designed so it is impossible for the chain to jump off the sprockets, this saves you downtime in the field.
