FEEDS BOTH SIDES > Doesn’t matter which way the bale goes on. Optional side bars for feeding out square bales

CHAIN > 12 000 lb roller chain. Strongest on the market! > Weight transfer is along the bars and through the rollers onto the track in comparison to link chain – straining at every link > 40mmø rollers which travel 130mm each revolution are very low wearing (A 30mm øroller travels only 95mm meaning it is working harder) > Impossible for chain to jump off the sprocket and is covered for safety > Tucked away each end for minimal wrapping > Zinc coated

BARS > Zinc plated > 40mm x 40mm RHS is 4-5 times stronger torsionally than angle of same size > Bolted onto the chain is stronger and easily replaceable > For different bale types blank bars or bars with more aggressive teeth are available

TEETH > Shark teeth release the feed off the taper at the correct point > 6mm for extra strength > Tips can be angled for more aggression

FLOOR > Fully enclosed – no wastage of expensive feed > Polyethylene is impervious to UV, non corrosive, slipery to reduce drag and drive power, easily repairable and very shock resistant > Long bed can take 5’ long bales

DRIVE SYSTEM > Heavy duty hardened 1” drive pins. > Direct drive > 400cc motor

WEIGHT > 480kg is the lightest in it’s class. This is achieved by using high grade steel (50%stronger than mild steel) and clever engineering. > High hook position means the weight is distributed across 3 points and the strain comes off the ends of the tines

EASY LOADING > Super low cradle is easy to load with 3PTL and means you don’t rely on a front end loader (FEL) > Right tyne is longer than the left so easy to reconnect to the cradle > Slotted top link hole so linkage can float when reconnecting > Cat 1 & cat 2 mounting points > Rope sleeve keeps rope clear of wheel

BALE SECURITY > The high rear bar means the bale cannot screw off the back on hills > Optional side rails are available

FEET> Designed for minimal damage to wet ground

LOW MAINTENANCE > Outboard bearing blocks are in a good position to keep clean and greased > No need for chain tensioning

Self-loading

Loading the SL-350 is very simple using our proven self-loading system. First the feeding cradle is disconnected by the pull of a rope. The tractor backs up and picks up the bale and moves it to the platform. The operator can then stop to remove the net wrap before placing the bale on the platform. Its very low cradle with no crossbar makes bale loading easy and quick. The operator then drives the forks into the feed unit, easy to line up correctly because of its unequal length tynes, and is now ready to feed out.

Round Bale FeederThe 2012 SL-350™ balefeeder is a 3 point linkage mounted single balefeeder suitable for all types of round bales, even 5’ long. For 2012 we've increased the size of the rear bale restraint to reduce the chance of any bale spillage and also to improve the aesthetics a little... it's so good what else could we improve other than a few small details. 

What people say...'My concern after having bought the SL350 is that I may not live long enough to wear this machine out because it is so well constructed!  I have rated it on the standard and poor scale as AA+.  Looking forward to heavier weights in the cattle next year!'
