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 and Beef Farmer, North Canterbury, New Zealand. SL350
“The Hustler bale feeder is the best investment I have made since constructing a slatted shed for my cattle and purchasing a tractor. We currently feed over 300 bales a year and since the arrival of the Hustler it has saved me from the back breaking work of forking my cattle silage. I now have the capability to feed 60 cattle in under 30 minutes with minimum effort. The cost of the Hustler is very small when it is spaced out over 5 years per animal.”
- PJ Hynes, Co. Roscommon, Ireland - 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.
