"Most Versatile Bale Processor Ever"
The 2544 "Bale Buster" handles both dry hay and high moisture silage bales equally well, thanks to an adjustable chop-ping system that allows 18 free-swinging cast iron flails to adapt to different crop materials. You simply use a turnbuckle ratchet to move the 17 æ"slug bars" that the flails swing against.
The machine also features a new-style cutting screen that allows hay or straw to be chopped to as short as 3 in. in length, the company notes.
A big four-blade, 44-in. dia. fan can be adjusted to blow straw as far as 90 ft. across an entire barn (with optional cannon spout) or into feed bunks with a standard spout and deflector shield.
Minimum pto requirement is 80 hp and minimum tractor hydraulic output is 8 gpm at 1,500 psi's.
Sells for $16,000.
