A self-loading 3-point-linkage mounted Chainless bale feeder suitable for feeding out all square bales, tight and loose round bales and it maximises feed use. Ideal for farms feeding 50-1000 bales each year.
“After having feeding out more than 23,000 bales, with minimal maintenance carried out over the last 13 years and with no major breakdowns, the decision was easy. We purchased our second Chainless 2000 without hesitation. The only problems we had with this machine were due to human error”

“The Hustler bale feeder is reliable and easy to operate. It handles rounds and squares, runs 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, and has been operating since 2003. It feeds evenly, and maintenance is virtually nil because there are no chains and the bearings are all sealed.”
- Paul of Oaklane Stables, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. Chainless 2000
SIMPLE AND SAFE DESIGN The innovative Chainless design eliminates feed chains, meaning fewer moving parts. The result is very low maintenance plus simple and safe operation.
ROUNDS AND SQUARES The true square and round balefeeder range found on the New Zealand market today, the Chainless range allows you to feed out virtually any bale you have on hand with ease.
THE FEED SAVE Our Chainless feeders use your feed efficiently; you can infinitely vary the amount of feed flowing over the side by adjusting the speed of either the feed rotors or the tractor speed. Thin for sheep, thick for your dairy heard – no problem with Chainless! Tight core, sloppy balage – no problem with Chainless! The infinitely adjustable bale chamber let you choose the bale pressure on demand from the cab
NO HASSLE ROTORS Designed to tease the bale out rather than simply unroll it, our rotors are self-cleaning, eliminating feed wrapping.
LONG LIFE FEEDBED Our polyethylene feedbed is slippery to reduce bale friction when feeding out and it’s also non-corroding, extremely tough and has been proven on 1000′s of farms worldwide.
Top rotor turns 3 times faster than bottom rotor – excellent teasing action provides fluffed up windrow reducing wastage > No troublesome feed chains to jamb, stretch or break > Fully enclosed drive transmission protected from damage > Paddles for handling even the sloppiest of bales > Spiral timed teeth makes for smooth running
Infinitely variable bale pressure control from inside the cab allows you to feed out the tightest bale cores or the sloppiest of bales > Built in height guides for easy feeding > Safety latch so operators can’t drive out while platform is up > For different bale types blank bars or bars with more aggressive teeth are available
