A self-loading 3-point-linkage mounted trough feeder suitable for feeding out into troughs, feed bunkers, over fences or onto feedpads a wide variety of mainly round bales and silage along with some square bales when using the optional side bars. The SL450X is suited for farms feeding out 50-800 bales each year.

5 Key Benefits


Easy to use. Single level feed control make it very easy to use and ideal for share milkers.


Toughest chain on the market. 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 polyethylene floor. Non corrosive, impervious to UV, slippery, easily repairable and very shock resistant. Fully enclosed – no wastage of expensive feed. Long bed can take 5’ long bales.


Low maintenance. Instead of bushes we use longer lasting block bearings, mounted outboard to keep them clean and free of damage.


Best bale security on the market. The high rear bar means the bale cannot screw off the back on hills. Optional side rails are available.


Strongest Bars

Bars are 4-5 times stronger torsionally than angle type bars of 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.

Toughest Chain

Zinc plated chains rated to 24,000lbs 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 of snake.

Low Maintenance Bearings

Protected double sealed heavy-duty 4-bolt bearings with trash shields are mounted outboard of the feeding chamber, which makes them last longer than internally mounted bushes.

Enclosed Sprockets

Our 6 tooth sprockets are made from Bisalloy (the same material a bulldozer blade is made from) 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 chain to jump off the sprocket saves you downtime in the field. The chain runs on a roller at the main elevator pivot, eliminating any further chain wear.

Superior Dual Lock

Dual latch system for superior rigidity and safety with locking device.

Raised Sides

The raised side stops feed falling off the elevator and being wasted. This is especially important when feeding out fine chopped silage or maize bales.

Maximum Reach

Large extension for maximum reach allows feeding out into hay baskets/cradles as well as troughs and feedpads.

Bale Chamber

Fully enclosed front and rear bale chamber reduces feed falling out. This also enables you to feed out maize bales or fine chopped silage.

Rope Guide

The unique rope guide makes disconnection easy because of a direct pull of the rope on the latch. It also keeps the rope out of the way of the tractor tyre.

Polyethylene Floor

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

Unequal Length Tynes

Unequal length tynes make connecting the feeder easy. You’ll only need to line up one tyne, then back straight in.

Full Width Feet

Wide feet provide extra stability when not in use and stops the feeder sinking into wet or muddy ground.

Ultra Low Cradle

Ultra low cradle, makes loading bales easier.
