FAQs

Q. How long is the warranty on Hustler Products?

A full 2 year warranty applies globally to all products manufactured by Hustler Equipment and a full 12 month warranty applies to all products manufactured by Robertsons, a division of Hustler.  An optional extended 4 warranty is available in some countries – contact your nearest dealer for more information.

Q. Am I able to feed fine chopped bales with a Chainless balefeeder?

Yes, Hustler’s new X-Series Chainless are the only bale feeders on the market that will reliably feed out any bale! Earlier models of Chainless 2000 and Chainless 4000 struggled with wet, soggy balage or fine cut bales. We recommend with these models to lift the platform higher than usual.

Q. Can the Chainless feed out round bales both ways?

Yes – it doesn’t matter which way the bale is unwinding, a Chainless will feed it out

Q. Will I be able to feed round and square bales?

Yes, the Chainless models are designed specifically for feeding any type of bale round, square, hay, baleage, straw, etc. This is because of the twin drums turning at different speeds, which tease out bales rather than simply unrolling them.

Our SL and SLX model round balefeeders can feed out square bales with the optional sidebar kit fitted, although like all cradle-type feeders they will not feed square bales as well as the specially-designed Chainless range.

Q. Am I able to feed straw bales with a Chainless balefeeder?

Yes, round and square.

Q. Do you have a balefeeder that feeds into troughs?

Yes, the new Chainless X Series feeders have an optional side chute for troughs and bunks. And our SL-450X is designed to feed into troughs and over fences. This model is unique in that the side extension can be foldedout of the way for transport or to feed over fences. Click here to see the SL-450X.

Q. Do your chain type balefeeders use bushes or bearings?

Bearings. Because bearings, unlike bushes, are silent and don’t flog out when not greased. Bearings well out-last bushes and have much less friction, providing a smooth, free-running operation and require a lot less grease to maintain.

We mount our bearings externally to further prevent hay, silage juice, and straw from causing damage or premature wear, as found with any internally mounted bearing or bush. We use heavy duty, self-aligning, 4 bolt flange bearings with trash shields to withstand the harshest of conditions, even mud!
