Features

Fast Mixing and Cleanout

The raised lower right auger configuration, along with the close tolerance between the auger flighting and the auger bottoms, results in a fast and complete cleanout. The offset upper right auger in combination with the raised lower auger requires less horsepower and provides a faster mix time.

Unmatched Cleaning Performance

New discharge options deliver fast, even feedout. The 4-auger conveyor has a heavier build and upgraded drive for outstanding durability. Additional discharge options include a slide tray, and a chain and slat conveyor.

Enhanced Drive Serviceability

The flanged and bolted augers provide a stronger auger to drive shaft connection. Splined shafts give more positive power transfer and longer service life compared to keyed sprocket-to-shaft connections.

Easy Access Door

The new single-handled latch provides easy access to the oil bath. An improved seal keeps oil in, and dirt and debris out, to help minimize wear on drive components and maintain a cleaner appearance.

Flexible for Grain and Roughage

The grain-auger option provides gentle handling of more delicate feeds like flaked corn to maintain ration quality. The roughage-auger option features notched, sectional flighting with welded-in, self-sharpening, hardened knives for better hay handling capability.
