Launching of the 3 auger mixer range for large farms

To meet the constantly increasing size of herds, Lucas G extends their vertical auger diet feeders range with 4 new models.

• A range for large herds

The models range from 27 to 35 m3 (30 and 32 m3 for the intermediary models), to feed from 150 up to 215 cows at once. These diet feeders are particularly suitable for suckle farmers and fatteners who make very fibrous rations. These mixers accept up to 5 wrapped bales per mixture.

• A robust design

These machines are designed with a supporting frame and are equipped with a 24 ton tandem axle which is sized to support all constraints related to daily travels. A reinforcement tank limits pressure on the planetary units during displacement, loading and mixing phases. These diet feeders can be equipped with a steering tandem axle to improve manoeuvrability.

• A quality mixture

The rolled tank allows the ration to allow a homogeneous and fast mixture. Thanks to the flared profile of the tank, the expansion effect is amplified; the bales are mixed more easily to reduce the preparation time of the ration. The 3 auger diet feeders are available in a front conveyor version with a 300 mm offset (right or left) and a 750 mm distribution height.

The Spirmix 300 will be exhibited in Hanover on Agritechnica Show, from November 10th to 14th.
