Hustler’s innovative bale feeder chainless design eliminates feed chains, meaning fewer moving parts. The result is very low maintenance plus simple and safe operation.
If it’s the most versatile, reliable, efficient and quietest bale feeder you are after (or any of the above) choose a Chainless bale feeder. Our new X-Series feeds every bale type, round, square and size. And there’s no high maintenance, noisy chains, or wearing parts to disrupt your feeding program.
No more waiting for those tight, belt baled bales to unwind in a conventional feeder wasting your time. Whatever bale type you have, round or square, the X-Series Chainless models will feed it out. They even make light work of bales that are frozen solid in the tough winter conditions.
Our unique Hustler 3 -1 ratio teases bales apart rather than simply unrolling it, retaining the highly nutritional leaf, making the feed more palatable for stock and reducing the amount of bale wastage keeping more money in your back pocket.
Infinite variation in feed control allows you to feed thick for cattle, and thin for sheep to increase the palatability for your stock. You’re in control of your feeding program with total control over the feed row and loading.
If it’s a simple round bale feeder you are after choose a chain type Hustler bale feeder. Hustler build the toughest, most reliable and trusted farming machinery on the market.
Zinc plated chains rated to 12,000 lb each and with the heavy duty rollers and pins make our chain drive system almost twice as strong as our competitors. Floor bars are 4-5 times stronger torsionally than angle type bars of the same size.
Snaplox eliminates smashed windows and strained backs. And the unique chassis design prevents the round bale unroller mechanism from damage should it come in contact with the ground.
Our ultra-low cradle design with removable fences makes for easy loading should you not have much lift height on your tractors hitch. The longer spears also make loading easier, by reducing sag.
