4 Bale Straw Chopper
The 3-pt. mounted, pto-powered chopper saves time by carrying 4 bales at once. Each of its four chambers holds one conventional rectangular bale. When one bale is chopped, you rotate the chamber so the next bale is shredded. You can shred all 4 bales without leaving the tractor seat.
Bales are shredded by 18 revolving and 16 stationary knives. Straw is forced down through the blades and blown out the side. Knives are made from sickle sections so they're easily replaced.
Straw can be distributed out both sides at once or out of one side at a time. Chopper requires 15 to 25 hp., depending on straw condition. It can blow straw up to 30 ft. away.
Machine sells for about $3,000. The company is looking for dealers.
