Bale Shredder Great For Hay,Straw
Designed for smaller operators who feed hay in barns and also spread straw for bedding, the new Calvet bale shredder requires only a 40 hp. tractor.
It loads itself so no second tractor is needed. The bale bed tilts up 90? and a side arm pulls a bale on board as the bed drops back down. A chain fitted with cutting knives rotates the bale and pulls off the hay or straw.
If you're feeding cattle, the hay drops down in an even windrow alongside the shredder. If you're bedding stalls, straw drops onto a conveyor that feeds the straw into a large pto-powered blower that can throw straw out as far as 45 ft., if needed.
