Up Front Hopper Adds Protein To Round Bales
The unit is fitted with a hydraulically-driven blower and metering auger. The grain or pellets are blown through a 4-in. dia. hose to the pickup reel of the round baler. Application rates can be varied from 22 lbs. to 220 lbs. per ton of hay. In-cab controls let you vary the applicator rate and there is a visible check-gauge that lets you easily monitor the flow of supplement.
The up-front blower can be mounted on a front 3-pt. or attached directly to the tractor frame. In addition to adding supplements to grain, it can also be used to transfer seed to drills or planters and left in place as an extra-capacity hopper when planting.
