Power feeder for skid steer loaders
The 5-ft. wide, 5-ft. long, 3-ft. high V-shaped hopper is equipped with a chain-drive tine agitator and a 10-in. dia. hydraulic-driven auger that discharges feed from the bottom of the hopper. Overall outside width is 6 ft. 4 in.
"It's designed to transport feed, not mix it, so it won't take the place of a mixer wagon," says Jeff Roberts, inventor. "It works great for feeding in tight spots both inside and outside, and for transferring total mixed rations to locations not served by automatic equipment. Some farmers use it to feed silage. The hopper can be raised 4 ft. for feeding into bunks."
The 40 cu. ft. hopper weighs 420 lbs. and holds up to 1,200 lbs. of feed. Unloading time is 3 minutes. The hydraulic motor requires 7 gpm. An auxiliary hydraulic control valve is optional. Optional quick attachment plates are available for most skid steer loader models.
Sells For $2,488.
