Roof

Prevents the hay from being damaged from adverse weather. This means that feed is better utilized because there is less waste.

Lifting Strap

The Sliding Gates Hay Feeders has a strap that allows a tine of a FEL to go in it and lift it. This allows the feeder to be lifted over the bale by using the machine that brought the bale to the feeder. This gives the farmer a simple way of loading the feeder with bales.

Sliding Gates

The hay is contained within the 2 sliding gates. As the stock consume the hay behind the gates, they push the gates in. The sliding of the gates is helped by them moving on a slight slope. This means that they will always rest against the hay and contain it behind the bars of the gates. This prevents the feed from being wasted by trampling, soiling, urine.

Removable Sliding Gates and Containment Sheets

These parts are removable so bales can be loaded into the feeder from the side. The Sliding Gates have a removable tube in each end of it. These are fastened by shaft lock pins. The Containment Sheet slides in a housing at the bottom, pivots over a shaft and have a Lynch pin to lock it in place.

Flat Packing Feeder

The ability of flat packing has a double saving effect:

  1. transport costs; and
  2. assembly costs.

The transport costs are significantly reduced because each feeder is flat-packed into a space of 2650 x 1100 x 200 (LxWxH). Assembly costs are also saved by following the simple instructions. The assembly of the Sliding Gates Hay Feeders usually takes between 30 and 60 minutes each.
