Vertical Auger range

The Hi-Spec Vertical Auger range of feeders is available in both single and twin auger variants.

Single auger machines range in size from 7m3 to 16m3 and the twin auger from 14m3 to 32m3.

A specific feature of the Hi-Spec range is its ability to quickly and efficiently incorporate complete bales into the mix, due to the unique knife arrangement, which also allows the Vertical Auger mixer to be used with lower horsepower tractors.

The Vertical Auger range uses a low pitch mixing and chopping auger that creates a simple cycle action and is fitted with eight self-sharpening knives, one of which runs close to the body of the Vertical Feeder.

This ensures that once the mix is drawn up by the auger, as it falls back down the side it continues to be chopped and mixed, ensuring a quick and thorough mix can be consistently achieved.

The Vertical Auger mixer only requires two double acting valves to operate all the hydraulic functions.

The wide range of options includes various discharge outlet positions or a variable height hydraulic chute or Cross Conveyor with elevator.
