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.
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 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 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.
Floor bars 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 on the market. Zinc plated chains rated to 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.
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.
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.
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.
New Thermoform floor covers the driveshaft’s which eliminates any possibility of feed wrapping around the shafts or jamming.
High Rear Fence
To pull the bale against – makes loading with a front loader easier and the bale is held securely in the chamber on even the steepest of terrain.
Best bale restraint on the market means no matter what terrain you operate on, you won’t need to worry about bales screwing themselves off the back or front
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 .
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
The 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 which 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.
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.
Are built into the design, should you ever need to adjust the pre-set chain tension.
Single Lever Control
Enables the SL300X to feed bales out to the left or right and gives precise control of the feed rate.
The tough new design of the headstock, with bolted lower 3 point mounts provides more flexibility of use, and is rated for 1250kg bales
