Tim Richards, Kentucky (USA) - Chainless X5000

Tim Richards from Kentucky chose to replace an aging TMR mixer wagon with Hustler's Chainless X5000 bale feeder for his indoor beef feedlot. Take a look at what he has to say about the conversion...

“Not only has it saved me an hour and ten a day, I’ve also cut back a bale. 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”
