The top of the range trailed Chainless double bale feeder, self-loading, suitable for feeding out any hay bale, round or square, and it maximises feed use. The Chainless X5000 carries 2 bales at a time and is designed for medium to large operations.
“I have to say the new Chainless X5000 bale cart is fantastic and a great improvement on the 4000, we have noticed a big difference in the amount of hay we are feeding out and reduced wastage”.
- Ella Anderson, University of Tasmania, Australia - Chainless X5000
Tim Richards from Kentucky replaced his vertical TMR mixer wagon with Hustler's Chainless X5000 bale feeder for his indoor beef feedlot. The results? "Not only has it saved me an hour and ten a day, I've also cut back a bale" says Tim. "When I used to use a vertical mixer, to feed my cattle, it took me an hour and a half to feed out, (20 mins alone per bale to grind). Now I fed out with the Chainless X5000 yesterday and it took me 22 minutes. It used to take 3 bales in the TMR to fill my troughs (because the TMR grinds the hay more and if the hay’s in front of the cows they'll just eat it) and now I have cut back to 2 bales in the Chainless and it fills my troughs. Now I don't have to use 2 tractors, which had to run 1.5 hours every other day and has clocked up a lot of hours, also not having a PTO is great"

Chainless – no troublesome feed chains is a key advantage for – Reliability, lower maintenance and quieter operation, the teasing action of the rotors uses feed more economically, because it is easier for the cattle as they can eat it because it is fluffed up. The Chainless X5000 can effectively feed out any bale type in both round or square. Chainless is a virtually silent feeding operation which means stock are more comfortable.
The new rotor shape has better penetratration on tight bales and the shape cleans sticky bales better. The new Axial rotor centralizes the bale in the feeding chamber, so that there is less wastage. It has more grip on sloppy, rotor cut bales which makes feeding them out easier and more efficient. The larger bale chamber makes it possible to feed out a wider range of bales, and also makes using the X5000 very simple for operators of all skill levels and reduces the need for platform adjustment.
The new Easy Clean Hypaflo wiper panel – The newly developed wiper panel that clears the hay from the rotors better. It has a new quick release latching system for releasing the panel to clean out any hay.
Total Control 2 Loading system – gives you total control over loading the bale. The simple, reliable and fool-proof single cylinder design of the Hustler loading system is safer than other loading systems and allows unwrapping of the bale above the feed cradle, reducing waste. The Hustler loading system can be reversed if the operator decides not to load that bale. It also has more support area for soft or square bales. The X5000 has more leverage, stronger design and larger 1.5 tonne capacity.
Loaded with time-saving and money-saving features such as; QRC Grips, the optional LoadCam, Drawbar hose holder, biggest stub axles on the market, Loadial loading indicator, Feedguide built in platform height guide, mudguards, Hustler’s stamp of quality, full 2 year warranty, and much more…
Stability – The Chainless x5000 with its low centre of gravity and wide wheel track makes it the most stable bale feeder on the market when in operation adding peace of mind.
Hustler’s proven polyethylene platforms with ribbed design keeps bales tracking straight and with 30% less friction than steel it reduces drag on the bale which makes feeding out sticky bales easier and it will never corrode. The X5000’s platform is wider to reduce waste with sloppy bales.
