Mounted Bale Unrollers

The toughest, simplest and most versatile round bale feeding solution.

UNROLLA LM105 / LX105

The toughest, simplest and most versatile round bale feeding solution.

Easier to use than any other type chain feeders on the market today. Being the most innovative, with 6 unique features you won’t find on any other bale feeder that makes it easier to use, more versatile, and saves your precious time. Recommended for farms feeding 50-800 bales each year, the self-loading 3-point linkage mounted feeder is suitable for feeding out all but the tightest of round bales and baled silage, loose silage, maize, fodder-beet and more.

Key Benefits

Snaplox - Connection System

The LX105 Unrolla Snaplox auto connect/disconnect hands-free loading system, saves you time, saves you having to tug on a rope to disconnect, and saves you from twisting your back.  It’s fail-safe, fast and operates naturally.

Toughest Chains

Toughest chain and floor bars on the market is bullet-proof and lasts the entire life span of the 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.

Covered Drive Bearings

The LX105 Unrolla has covered drive bearings to keep the dirt out, extending bearing life.

Polyethylene Floor

Tough new Thermoform fully enclosed polyethylene floor with covered drive shafts which eliminate wrapping.  It’s non-corrosive, impervious to UV, slippery, easily repairable and very shock resistant. Fully enclosed – no wastage of expensive feed. The long bed can take 5’ long bales.

Low Maintenance Bearings

Just 4 grease nipples, is all it takes to maintain the mounted round bale unroller, 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 silage juices. We’ve also added bearing covers which prevent debris from causing damage.

Flexible Design

Do you operate in barns, outdoors, on steep country, with a tele-loader, supplement with loose silage or fodder beet?  With the flexible configuration of the mounted round bale unroller, your new feeder will suit all of the above.  No other feeder allows this level of flexibility which gives you peace of mind, should you want to change the way you operate.  You won’t need to change your feeder.

3PTL or Loader Mounted

The LX105 Unrolla is 3PTL or loader mounted, utilizing a new headstock design with bolt-on brackets, you get to choose if you want it mounted on the front or rear of a tractor or loader, and it can be offset to allow more tyre clearance when feeding into bunks or troughs.

Multi-Hitch option

Our Hustler multi-hitch simplifies connection, allowing the LX105 mounted bale feeder to be connected to the front loader or 3 point linkage in minutes without the need for any tools.

Key Features

Strongest Bars

The mounted 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.

Toughest Chain

Toughest chain on the market. Zinc plated chains (Hustler) total rating of 24,000 lbs with the larger diameter rollers and pins make our chain drive system almost twice as strong as our competitors. And the greater surface on each roller pin increases chain life because they can’t stretch or snake.

Enclosed Sprockets

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.

Ultra-low Cradle

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.

Covered Driveshafts

New Thermoform floor covers the driveshaft’s which eliminates any possibility of feed wrapping around the shafts or jamming.

Thermoform Floor

The new single-piece fully enclosed floor reduces feed waste and will never corrode. Being polyethylene it is slippery with 30% less drag compared to steel which makes feeding sticky silage or wet bales easy.

High Rear Fence

The LX105 Unrolla high rear fence is used to pull the bale against – making loading with a front loader easier and the bale is held securely in the chamber on even the steepest of terrain. This high rear fence is an option for LM105.

Bale Chamber

The LX105 Unroller bale chamber is the best bale restraint on the market meaning that no matter what terrain you operate on, you won’t need to worry about bales screwing themselves off the back or front. This is an option for the LM105 Unrolla. 

Added Versatility

Add an extra covered in front and rear fence to the options and you can feed loose silage, maize, fodder beet, etc loaded with the bucket on your front loader.

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.

Unique Hook Design

The unique design of the hooks, carries the entire load of the feeder, rather than the tynes carrying the weight. This provides a stronger connection between feeding cradle and headstock which allows for a higher load rating, and eliminates twisting and bent tynes

Protected Drive

The LX105 Unrolla drive coupling is protected to eliminate hay from jamming it when connecting, and the hardened drive connection which has been proven on thousands of machines is built to last.

Tynes that pierce the bale

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

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.

Low Loading Height

Our extra deep bale cradle is the lowest loading height in its class on the market, making loading super easy. The long bale spears reduce the sagging of bales.

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.

Chain Tensioners

Are built into the design, should you ever need to adjust the pre-set chain tension.

Single Lever Control

Enables the mounted bale unroller to feed bales out to the left or right and gives precise control of the feed rate.

Tough Headstock

Calculator

Most of the savings are achieved by a reduction in the amount of bale which is wasted.

Feed wastage can be caused by various factors:
1) The bale is not teased apart enough making it harder for stock to eat.
2) Animals laying or trampling on fodder.
3) Unfinished bales inside ring feeders due to poor ground conditions, not allowing animals to reach the leftover bale.
4) Stock rejecting feed because of dirt, mud or other contaminants.

Savings can be made by feeding the right amount of the bale and retaining the rest for the next feed. By feeding over a larger area compare to a ring feeder, there is less competition between the animals.

Typical savings achieved by using a Hustler Chainless bale feeder are between 15-40%, depending on your existing feeding system (chain feeders typically save 10-35%).
