It minimises feed waste, allows easy access to feed, and its unique teasing action ensures that feed is palatable and easily chewed for maximum goodness. Lightness and a compact footprint mean pasture damage and soil compaction are never an issue.







Outdoor Feeding Solution | Hustler’s Chainless Bale feeding range

Traditionally bale feeders are used in pasture-based outdoor feeding operations, allowing livestock to roam free in the pasture and the supplementary feed can be spread to different parts of the pasture with each feeding.

The speed, low maintenance, and ability to handle any type of bale make Hustler’s Chainless bale Feeder the star all-rounder of feeders.


Why is the Chainless Range the ultimate feeding system for outdoor feeding?

  • Spreads out the feed so all animals can eat without any restriction.
  • Spreads out the valuable manure all over the paddock for grass enhancement
  • No damage to the pasture as there is no concentrated areas of cattle anywhere
  • No damage to the pasture as the machine is relatively lightweight.
  • Due to the narrow width windrow of around 500mm (18”) of the feed pattern, very little feed is wasted.
  • Cattle will eat 90% of the bale, they won’t stand or lie down on it like a warm bed as if it was rolled out as a mat.

Other types of feeders have their drawbacks:

  • Hay unrollers – Hay is layed in a mat and trampled on, reducing palatability and wasting a substantial portion of the bale.
  • Bale processors – Thrash the feed, destroying the valuable nutrients in the bale, and are costly to operate and maintain. 
  • Bale splitter – Complicated operation and time consuming.
  • Chain feeders – Feed is less teased apart, so it’s less palatable.
  • TMR/ feed mixer – Sheer weight increases the risk of pasture damage, soil compaction, and getting stuck and is time consuming and expensive to operate.

What our customers say

“After running the Hustler for a few months, we decided to go ahead and purchase two more”

Andrew Ferguson (USA) - Chainless X5000/TX205

“Since we’ve had the Hustler, we’re probably saving about 20% on wastage, compared to the other bale feeder. The way it feeds the bale out and teases it apart nicely, the cows waste a lot less. Ideally we’d be feeding fewer bales this season.”

Ben Maile, South Riana (Tasmania) - Chainless X5000/TE205

“I couldn’t believe it, but it saves a lot of hay”

“When feeding out we don’t want to be mucking around. It’s an awesome machine, hasn’t given us any trouble so far and honestly can’t see it giving us problems in the future”

David King, Carew (New Zealand) - Chainless X5000/TX205

“100% better, the old one feeds out in chunks and this Chainless X5000/TX205 teases the hay, feeding out alot better”
