A real fuel & time saver! Unroll each bale directly into a TMR mixer in less than 2 minutes, saving a massive amount of time, fuel and wear of the knives from having to grind up each bale inside the mixer. And you can weigh-in the exact amount.
Although some ranchers feed out with a bale feeder, then lay mixed ingredients over the top – a mixer wagon is still the best option for mixing feed with other ingredients. However, a Hustler feeder has a role to play in reducing the time it takes for a mixer wagon or TMR feeder to grind up an entire bale, by feeding directly into the machine.
Because the feed is teased apart, a lot less power is needed for mixing– which leads to savings in time, diesel consumed and maintenance costs.
By using the Hustler system to load the TMR, the exact amount of hay required can be precisely loaded into the machine. This eliminates complicated ration calculations as well as errors in working out the correct proportions of other nutrients based on bale weight.
Hay, baleage or straw
Round or square bales
Telehandler, Skid Steer loader or tractor with front loader
Not only can this be used for breaking up bales for your TMR mixer, this can be used for feeding your livestock in multiple different ways leading you to saving fuel, time, feed and money.
– Feeding into a long narrow windrow
– Feeding into hay rings
– Front and rear mounted (feed behind or in front of the machine)
– Bunk/trough feeding
– Over fence or hot wire
