Hurricane Bale Feeder & Bedder for Round & Square Bales

Unique 2-in-1 Hurricane is the only machine that can feed and spread both round and square bales! The patented 100% hydraulic-powered design is gentle on both feed and bedding straw reducing feed waste and jamming, maximizing bedding life, minimizing dust and projectiles, and can be operated on telehandlers, loaders, and tractors 3 point linkage. 

The swiss-army knife of bale feeder / bedder machines

  • Feeds round and square bales without shredding or destroying highly nutritional leaf
  • Evenly spreads round and square bales from 7-11 metres without shredding straw for longer life
  • Hydraulically powered allows for quick and easy loader or telehandler mounting
  • High discharge design enables spreading over head bails when using on tractor 3 point linkage 
  • Minimal dust, low projectile design is safer for cattle

 

5 Reasons to Choose a Hurricane

1. More Versatility

The most versatile feeder bedder on the market

  • Feeds any bale type of round or square bale – Hay, Balage, Straw
  • Spreads/beds both round or square bales of straw
  • Hydraulically powered works equally as well on telehandlers, loaders, or tractor 3 point hitch
  • Handles the widest variety of bales than any single machine 

2. More Efficiency

Save more of your time and money

  • Unchopped straw lasts longer, reducing straw consumption and waste handling for clean up
  • Highly nutritional leaves remain intact when feeding, to preserve the most nutritional part of the bale, reducing feed waste
  • Low power requirement saves of fuel consumption
  • Lower overall operational labour required

3. More Animal Safety

Unique spreader design is safer for livestock

  • Reduces dangerous projectiles unlike blower machines which can be fatal
  • Projectiles from blowers can penetrate and damage your barn
  • Low dust bedding with Hurricane reduces respiratory problems when bedding pens with livestock in them

4. More Flexibility

Flexibility of use future-proof operation

  • Hydraulically powered rather than PTO and hydraulic powered allows more flexibility of operation
  • The ultra-compact design allows for use in tighter workspaces than other feeder / bedders
  • Operate on the 3 point hitch or loaders

5. More Simplicity

Safer, simpler, easier

  • High discharge makes operation safer as centre of gravity can remain lower to the ground than other bedding systems
  • Auto disconnection system makes for easy and safe loading and netting removal and headstock/spears can be used for general bale stacking duties
  • Less than 10 seconds to switch between feeding and bedding without the need for tools
  • Rotor can be unplugged without leaving the cab, unlike all other bedding systems

A feeding system comparison Hurricane versus blower type

Hurricane Straw Blower type
 Lowest dust spreading = Cleaner barn, healthier livestock Χ Dust creates a Messy Environment & livestock respiratory issues
Hydraulic Drive, No PTO less maintenance and safer, less fuel consumption Χ High horsepower required, PTO driven higher maintenance, harder to connect up
Covers more area with less straw and improved absorption means straw lasts longer Χ Straw chopped small meaning it takes more straw to fill the bedding area
✔ Remove blockages without needing to leave the cab Χ Covers need to be removed to clear blockages
✔ Unique design reduces projectiles making for safer operation Χ Projectiles damage your barn, and can be lethal when bedding with livestock in the pens
✔ Easily feeds any bale even wet balage without jamming Χ Prone to plugging up when feeding, especially wetter forages
Simple in-cab controls Χ Have to get out of the cab to change RPM speed
Self-loading design with snap-lox auto-connect system utilises bale spears for easy loading, stacking and bale handling Χ No Auto connection, difficult loading. Bales need to be pushed against a wall or similar to load
Compact Design  Χ Large design – hard to get into tight spaces
Bed Round & Square Χ Round bales Only

3 added values that you’ll appreciate with the Hurricane:

Doesn’t Pulverize or chop feed – Gentle on the highly nutritional leaves when in feeding mode, keeping intact preserving the most nutritional part of the bale, reducing feed waste.

Long full stem straw for bedding last longer and requires fewer replacements saving on straw and labour to constantly clean out barns. It also provides more cattle comfort as it doesn’t pack down as quickly

Bed and feed, round and square bales. Yes the Hurricane is the only machine that will reliably bed and feed round and square bales of any type. 

Hurricane Comparison1

A feeding system comparison Hurricane versus bale processor type

Hurricane Bale Processor type
✔ Doesn’t Pulverize or Chop feed reducing waste Χ  Pulverizes and Chops feed reducing nutritional value
 Lowest dust spreading = Cleaner environment and healthier livestock Χ Dust creates a messy environment & livestock respiratory issues, and more maintenance cleaning tractors air filters
Hydraulic Drive, No PTO less maintenance and safer, less fuel consumption Χ High horsepower required, PTO driven higher maintenance, harder to connect up, and more replacement of costly wearing parts
Compact design Χ  Large pull-type design – hard to maneuver in tight spaces
Covers more area with less straw and improved absorption means straw lasts longer Χ Straw chopped small meaning it takes more straw to fill the bedding area, and straw packs in quicker
✔ Remove blockages without needing to leave the cab Χ Prone to plugging with wet materials, and are difficult to remove and clear blockages
✔ Unique design reduces projectiles making for safer operation Χ Projectiles damage your barn, and can be lethal when bedding with livestock in the pens
✔ Easily feeds any bale even wet balage without jamming Χ Prone to plugging up when feeding, especially wetter forages
Feeds and beds Round & Square bales of any feed type Χ Feeds most round bale types and some squares

3 added values that you’ll appreciate with the Hurricane:

Gentle on highly nutritional leaves- This preserves the most nutritional part of the bale, reducing feed waste. 

Doesn’t Pulverize or chop – Cleaner barn, less animal and human respiratory problems, less straw consumption 

Hydraulic powered design is easier to connect, safer to use, uses less fuel and wearing parts lowing overall operating costs, and provides the flexibility to be operated on a front end loader

What our customers are saying

“Our drives to moving to this bit of kit was finding a safer alternative to the PTO straw chopper, and to get to one tractor operation for bedding up. The Hurricane stood up to the challenge and straw no longer gets trodden in as quickly”

Adam Atkinson, South Devon (United Kingdom) - Hurricane LX104

I enjoy running the Hustler, it handles the hay better than anything I’ve run for products for busting up round bales. I got the Hurricane on this one and it tears it apart, fluffs it, more than I can ask for in any other machine I’ve run, I’ve run several dif
