The Nugent Bale Feeder is designed to save time, money and wastage on the farm whilst reducing manual handling and prioritising the safety of both animal and operative, according to the company.
Manufactured in Co. Tyrone is capable of being used on three-point linkage, front loader or farm handler.
The quick-attach automated locking system eradicates manual input required from the operator, whilst bales can also be loaded and unloaded from the comfort of the cab.
A rear-guard is fitted as standard for extra protection and prevention of overspill, dramatically reducing wastage and keeping passages clear, according to the company.
Other features include a high-density polyethene single piece floor which reduces spillage friction to allow for easier feeding.
Adjustable feed rates on the two-sided feeder can be controlled by the motor; this has been positioned through clever design to protect the operator, with a view to ensuring a maximum lifespan in combination with the zinc-plated chain which protects from rust.
Heavy duty tines (which can also be used as a Bale Spike) along with wide flared, easy guide cones allow for simple engaging, with a coupling designed to ensure a secure connection every time.
