Have your say

The ever popular Hustler CH-2000H chainless bale feeder is now available with the option of the new Hurricane straw spreader attachment for bedding operations.

While the CH-2000 is used for all types of feeding tasks, from round or square bales of straw, silage, hay or haylage, the same machine will serve to lay animal bedding, spreading straw up to ten metres.

The Hustler Hurricane bedder is simply attached to the CH-2000, and mounted on the tractor linkage it enables the straw to leave the machine at approximately 700mm from the ground (depending on the height of the lift arms), to be blown across a manger and over the top of the stock.

Alternatively, the machine can be mounted onto a telehandler for higher level spreading.

Whereas straw choppers are known for creating excessive dust, itself a threat to the health of the stock, the Hustler Hurricane spreads the straw without chopping it.

That represents a healthier form of bedding while saving time, and money, with the bedding having a longer life.

The Hustler CH-2000 is a unique chainless bale feeder, handling round or square bales, with the bale spiked and lifted onto the platform with heavy duty tines, ready for feeding.

When the Hustler Hurricane is not in use it is stowed neatly on the front of the machine while feeding along mangers and feeding passages is taking place.

To convert to a spreader the unit simply hinges around and locks into position on the side.
