The benefits of a Chainless bale feeder

Safe, simple and easy to operate

Versatile investment

Low maintenance

The hydraulically driven low speed rotors tease out bales in less than two minutes. Proven farmer-friendly bale self-loading system allows one operator to simply load and feed bales from the comfort of the tractor seat.

Feeds out round or square bales of any size or type of bale - balage, hay, straw, corn fodder, alfalfa, lucerne, etc. The bale feeder works in most stocking environments - indoors, outdoors into bunks, troughs or other feedlot systems or open fields.

Easy to maintain hydraulic drive system eliminates the need for a PTO and high speed flails with fewer moving parts and low running costs because the tractor can be run at low RPM.

Reduce hay waste

Reduce pasture damage

Effective use of valuable manure

The bale feeder lays down a fluffedup windrow which stock can easily eat, reducing wasted feed being trampled into the ground. Feed out as much or as little as you need and save the extra.

By allowing one bale to be fed to 50+ groups of any size livestock over a larger area eliminates the need for sacrificing paddocks where concentrated feeding damages pasture.

Because bales are fed out over a large area, cattle spread their own manure for you, which makes better use of this valuable fertilizer.

Why Chainless? Hustler’s patented Chainless bale-feeding technology has given farmers a giant step-up in the way they feed stock. Here we answer two of the most common questions from farmers weighing up the advantages of Chainless bale feeders over other methods of feeding out. For a more in-depth comparison, ask your dealer for a copy of the Hustler Bale feeder Comparison Guide.

Typical amount of feed wasted > Feed wastage is affected by a range of factors,including application, type, shape, and condition of bales. For feed saving advice specific to your application, ask your Hustler Field Consultant.

CHAINLESS BALEFEEDER

6-11% CHAIN/ SLAT BALE FEEDER

Feed waste

9-17%

A Chainless bale feeder minimises feed waste by feeding out into narrow windrows to make feed more accessible to animals and all but eliminate damage from hoof trampling, manure spoilage, and animals laying down on the feed.

HAY UNROLLER

It will handle partly used bales, so you only need to feed out what’s needed on the day, and its ability to deal with sloppy or loose bales means there’s no feed loss from the sides of the bale feeder. In contrast to other systems that deliver feed in solid clumps, a Hustler Chainless feeder teases feed apart to make it easily chewable and more palatable, so more feed gets eaten.

28-41% RING FEEDER

34-62% BALE SPLITTER

18-22% BALE PROCESSOR/ CHOPPER

29-36% TMR/ FEED MIXER

To learn more about all of the issues with feeding out bales, and how each type of feed out equipment compares, request a copy of the 24 page comparison guide Or for advice, discuss your needs with your nearest Field Consultant.


Diesel consumption The comparison figures shown are based on industry standard calculations for diesel consumption per horsepower per hour. More efficient use of power, savings on machinery investment and faster bale feeding all add up to impressive fuel economy – made possible by the hydraulic drive system at the heart of every Hustler Chainless bale feeder. Unlike most PTO driven bale-feeding systems that require 50 horsepower minimum to drive their chopping action, the low speed teasing action of the Hustler hydraulic system needs only 3-4 horsepower. This makes a Chainless bale feeder compatible with smaller tractors, which leads to further savings in fuel consumption and equipment purchase costs. With a feed-out time of just 2-4 minutes per bale, compared with other feeders that can take up to 45 minutes, a Chainless bale feeder has the lowest diesel consumption per bale of any mechanical feeder. Hustler bale feeder hydraulics requirements: 2 X

Typical Diesel Consumption > (Average per bale)

Diesel consumption is affected by a range of factors, including distance travelled, type and shape of bales. For fuel saving advice specific to your application, ask your Hustler Field Consultant.

*Calculated from industry standard calculations for diesel consumption per horsepower produced per hour, based on HP required for each type of equipment and time of distribution for each type of equipment. Some tractors maybe more or less efficient at producing horsepower than the industry standard and therefore use more or less diesel to feed out a bale.


08

Why Hustler bale feeders are the world’s best. OPTIONAL TROUGH EXTENSION

3:1 FEED TEASERS

SELF CLEANING

VARIABLE FEED

The optional adjustable angle trough extension allows the X5000 to feed into bunks or troughs.

Top rotor spins at three times the speed of the bottom rotor, teasing and separating the feed rather than simply unrolling it. This makes the feed much easier for stock to eat which results in less wasted feed, especially in wet or muddy conditions.

Rotors are timed together to self-clean and carry the feed up over the edge.

Infinitely variable rotor speed via the tractor’s hydraulics adjusts the rate of feed. Choose thick for cows or thin for sheep by adjusting rotor speed accordingly.

HYPAFLO WIPER PANEL The newly designed Hypaflo wiper panel cleans the top rotor from a wider range bale types, clearing even the longest hay. And the new easy clean quick release latch makes cleaning quick and easy should you need to clean it.

NO FEED CHAINS Chains are the most troublesome part of conventional feeders. No chains means no trouble and very low maintenance. Now that the entire drive system is located at the rear under one protective cover for quicker greasing, it’s out of the way of the tractors dual wheels during sharp turns.

DRIVE TRANSMISSION The protected drive system located at the rear is now 40% stronger to cater for heavier and more demanding bales.

FEED CONTROL

PATENTED HELIX DRUM

FEED-GUIDE Built-in platform height guide provides an indication of platform height for either squares or rounds. Operators lift the platform height to the relevant indicator, then turn the rotors slowly to start feeding. The platform to height can be fine-tuned depending on the density or size of the bale.

New paddle design arranged in a chevron pattern help to centralise the bale in the chamber and provide more grip on sloppy, wet or rotor cut bales.

Infinitely variable platform height controls pressure of the bale on the rotors. Even the tightest of bales can be fed out correctly with a Chainless because the operator can vary platform pressure to allow for bale density.

2 YEAR WARRANTY

POLYETHYLENE PLATFORM DEEPER CHAMBER The deeper chamber allows the rotors to grip soft, wet or rotor cut bales better and reduces the need for continuous adjustment of platform.

Slippery, ribbed design keeps bales tracking straight and reduces drag by 30% compared to steel which allows the X5000 to feed out more bale types. Polyethylene is impervious to UV and won’t corrode.

Like all Hustler products, the X5000 is backed by our full Two Year Warranty. For an extra two years peace of mind, ask about the Hustler Gold Plus Extended Warranty at time of purchase.

ONLY FEEDING ROUNDS? GOT HIGH DENSITY BALES? You’re time is too precious to be waiting while tight bales go round and around in conventional bale unrollers trying to tease them apart. Not to mention the frustration! Chainless are the only bale feeders that will feed tight, high density bales, even frozen bales efficiently.


INSIDE THE CHAINLESS SYSTEM Chains have traditionally been the weak point of balefeeders, requiring a lot of maintenance and usually being the first thing to break. So we eliminated them. Fifteen years later the Chainless system has been proven by thousands of hours of breakdown-free operation. 1 CLEAT DESIGN Provides a more positive grip on the bale when feeding out fine or sloppy bales. 2 STRONGER DRIVE SYSTEM We’ve increased the key size to provide a more positive and heavy-duty drive train capable of heavier and sloppier bales. 3 FREE-FLOW WIPER PANEL With wider adjustment range and less fine-tuning required, you can easily customise feed to your preference. 4 SLIPPERY POLYETHYLENE RIBBED FLOOR Slippery, ribbed design keeps bales tracking straight and reduces drag by 30% compared to steel. 5 INFINITELY VARIABLE FEED PATTERN Only rotor speed needs adjusting to vary the amount of feed being fed out. The fully adjustable platform height allows you to vary the bale pressure, so no matter how tight or loose your bale, the Chainless can still feed it out. 6 QUIET OPERATION Exceptionally quiet operation means your stock are more relaxed at feeding time.

Teased. Not chopped. When stems are attached to the leaves, the cattle can consume a balanced diet with roughage, reducing health problems and “slowing down the good stuff”. This also reduces the amount of nutrition that falls into the ground and is wasted or blown away in the wind. And your cattle won’t be licking the nutrition off the ground in the snow.

Very little nutrition retained with the conventional PTO powered flail type bale processor

High nutritional value retained in the leaf with Hustler’s gentle hydraulic low speed rotor system

PATENTED SNAPLOX AUTO CONNECTION SYSTEM

PATENTED TOTAL CONTROL LOADING SYSTEM

The clever Snaplox auto connect/disconnect handsfree system saves you time, saves you having to tug on a rope to disconnect, and saves you from twisting your back. It’s fail-safe, fast and operates naturally. Unequal length bale spears make connecting the headstock to the feeding cradle quick and easy.

Total control over bale loading is what you get, thanks to a single hydraulic cylinder, and simple patented mechanical engineering, resulting in safer and more reliable operation compared to imitation dual cylinder systems that require troublesome sequence valves that require frequent adjustment.

THE TOTAL CONTROL LOADING ADVANTAGE:

• Easy bale pickup means no digging up of paddocks or dirt mixing with feed • Gentle and accurate placement of the bale in the bale chamber • Easy to line up the bale • Minimal feed wastage because the net wrap can be removed above the bale chamber • Bale is secure during transport, even on steep inclines • Handles round and square bales • Second bale can be positioned low to the ground for added ballast.

6 KEY BENEFITS

OPTIONAL STRING BOX

COUPLING GRIPS

Our massive new string-box keeps your wrap and string out of harms way and your tractor cab clean and odor-free. Big enough to hold fencing standards, knives and anything else you need on the job.

New hand grips make plugging the hydraulic hoses in much easier, saving your knuckles. And the drawbar needle keeps the hoses out of harms way when operating, and has a built in holder to store hoses out of the dirt when not in use.

PATENTED AXIAL ROTOR

CHASSIS DESIGN

No bale is a match for the new Axial Rotor with centralising paddles, which keeps the bale positioned in the centre of the feeding chamber to minimise wastage and provides better grip for feeding out soft centre and rotor cut bales.

The clean underside of the Chainless X5000 allows you to drive across hot wires without getting snagged, and all the workings are out of harms way. Chassis members are larger to enable handling heavier bales.

1

Chainless – no troublesome feed chains is a key advantage for reliability, lower maintenance and quieter operation. The teasing action of the rotors uses feed more economically, because feed is fluffed up, it is more palatable, and easier for stock to eat. The Chainless X5000 can effectively feed out any bale type in both round or square. Chainless is a virtually silent feeding operation which means stock are more comfortable.

2

The new rotor shape has better penetration on tight bales and the shape cleans sticky bales better. The new Axial Rotor centralizes the bale in the feeding chamber, so that there is less wastage. It has more grip on sloppy, rotor cut bales which makes feeding them out easier and more efficient. The larger bale chamber makes it possible to feed out a wider range of bales, and also makes using the X5000 very simple for operators of all skill levels and reduces the need for platform adjustment.

3

The new Easy Clean Hypa-flow wiper panel – The newly developed wiper panel that clears the hay from the rotors better. It has a new quick release latching system for releasing the panel to clean out any hay.

4

Total Control 2 Loading system – gives you total control over loading the bale. The simple, reliable and fool-proof single cylinder design of the Hustler loading system is safer than other loading systems and allows unwrapping of the bale above the feed cradle, reducing waste. The Hustler loading system can be reversed if the operator decides not to load that bale. It also has more support area for soft or square bales. The X5000 has more leverage, stronger design and larger 1.5 tonne per bale capacity.

5

Loaded with time-saving and money-saving features such as; QRC Grips, the optional LoadCam, Drawbar hose holder, biggest stub axles on the market, Loadial loading indicator, Feed-guide built in platform height guide, mudguards, Hustler’s stamp of quality, full 2 year warranty, and much more

6

Stability – The Chainless X5000 with its low centre of gravity and wide wheel track makes it the most stable bale feeder on the market when in operation adding total peace of mind.


22

THE X5000 FACTOR Proven in the field and around the world. Following three years development and 20 months field testing on farms in New Zealand, Australia, and North America, the X5000 is our response to the evolving demands of feeding animals – brought about by climatic changes, variations in bale types, and the need to make feeding out easier for operators of all skill levels. By testing the Chainless X5000 on more than 19 farms globally involving more than 110 different tests has enabled the new design to feed out any bale, round or square - hay, balage and straw of all types including vetch, lucerne, oats, alfalfa, sorghum, and loose short cut silage bales that are problematic for other types of bale feeder. The addition of a new Patented Axial Rotor with centralising paddles keeps the bale positioned in the centre of the feeding chamber to minimise wastage and provide better grip on soft bales. The feeding chamber itself is now wider to prevent bale rub and wastage. And deeper – to make feeding out easier by removing the need for continuous adjustment of the platform. The Easy Clean Hypa-flow Wiper Panel minimises blockages and ensures that hay drops outside the wheel tracks to avoid being flattened into the mud. A quick release latch releases the wiper panel for easy cleaning. The larger 1.5 tonne (per bale) capacity can substantially increase on farm profitability and efficiencies in handling and feeding bales.

“MORE FARMERS CHOOSE A HUSTLER BALE FEEDER THAN ANY OTHER BRAND.” – Digipol International Research Consultants


> NEW ADVANCED FEATURES A stronger, more powerful drive system, located at the rear of the feeder is out of the way of tractor tyres during sharp turns and allows the Chainless X5000 to handle bigger, heavier bales. The single hydraulic ram of Hustler’s Total Control 2 loading system makes loading faster and prevents bales falling on the operator during unwrapping. A bigger spear frame provides extra support for soft or square bales. Another industry first from Hustler, the Chainless X5000 is the first bale feeder to feature LoadCam – an optional rear view camera that makes lining up the second bale easier. Setting the spears at the correct loading height has been simplified with our new easy-to-read and conveniently positioned Load Dial.

WHAT HUSTLER OWNERS ARE SAYING > The Chainless bale feeders are a direct result of listening to the needs of our customers both in North America, Australia, New Zealand and abroad and spending countless hours with them in the field. Here’s what some of them had to say. UNITED STATES

JERRY HOSHAW ONTARIO, OREGON “My Hustler Chainless 4000 balefeeder cuts the amount of time spent feeding on my farm by half! It is also much safer. I can sit in the cab of my tractor and feed out, and have the heater on when it’s raining – it is just so easy to feed now! There have been absolutely no problems after a whole season of feeding out. I feed out over 1000 square bales per season.”

GABE HAUGHTON VERNAL, UTAH “I found the Hustler bale feeder transformed the way I feed my cattle. Where earlier it was taking 2 hours, now my wife and I try to get to the bale feeder first, so as to do the feeding! My wife enjoys it, and can even take our 18 month old child in the tractor! It has made our life easier for that important task on the farm! It used to be a real chore, now an enjoyable breeze.”

MARK MAHNKEN LEGACY BEEF, MISSOURI “Our ranch/feed yard is located in central Missouri. As our program is a free range program we feed a lot of hay. The Chainless X5000 has performed well in our operation as a bale unloader in our bunker silo where we load the hay directly into our feed trucks as well as unloading big bales directly into fence line bunks. It has replaced a large industrial tub grinder which was expensive to operate and maintain. We are very pleased with this equipment. Thanks again”

UNITED STATES

EUROPE

ERIC ELSNER UNIVERSITY, GEORGIA

ROSCOMMON IRELAND

“We do feed with hay rings and hay trailers but a thousand times over, this bale feeder is a far better way in my opinion than a hay ring or a hay trailer. It’s a no brainer.”

“The Hustler bale feeder is the best investment I have made since constructing a slatted shed for my cattle and purchasing a tractor. We currently feed over 300 bales a year and since the arrival of the Hustler it has saved me from the back breaking work of forking my cattle silage. I now have the capability to feed 60 cattle in under 30 minutes with minimum effort. The cost of the Hustler is very small when it is spaced out over 5 years per animal.” SL-350 Owner

NATHAN JOHNSON TENNESSEE “This was the best business decision I made for feeding my hay.” CANADA

SOUTH AMERICA

NELSON BARRIA RIO BUENO, CHILE “This machine is the best of the best.... 7 years of work no problem!”

CRISTOPHER IBARRA R CHILE “We’ve owned this machine for 3 years, feeding 8-10 bales each day. It used to take 3 people all day, now one person can feed the bales in less time” SOUTH AFRICA

ADRIAN WILLIAMS MID WALES, UK

LORNE ZENTNER SASKATCHEWAN, CANADA “Our idea for purchasing this was because we feed a fair bit of green feed, oats, and triticale. We’re in Western Canada, and we feed some hay as well, square bales, round bales. But our idea was to keep that feed intact so we weren’t thrashing it, like through the normal process of a bale processor. And the results here are a lot different, it’s a lot gentler so it will feed it out the way we like it, so that it stays intact. That’s one of our big reasons for purchasing this machine. And you can see some of our feed over here, its stuff like that we’d like to see stay intact.”

CODY SAWLEY ALBERTA, CANADA “No noise, no stress on equipment”

“We think the world of our Hustler, we feed between 7-800 bales per year through it to our suckler beef herd. I would say at a guess that we have owned our machine for at least 6 years which means we’ve fed out approximately 4-5000 bales, we only use rounds. Length, width of the machine is perfect for operation and all our feeding is done indoors, alongside feed barriers.” “We have never had to replace any parts. It’s a brilliant machine, we could never be without it since we changed over to all Round Bales, from pit silage.”

JASON HODGSON SCOTLAND “The Hustler is worth its weight in saving on time and labour compared to manually feeding. It loads itself and is very efficient and very well made.” Buston Farm Oxfordshire

SAM RICHARDS SOUTH AFRICA “This is a really good machine, and it will be worth its weight in gold when you buy it”

SIMON STRACEY BERKSHIRE “With the distances we have to travel from the farm to the feed site we required a machine capable of carrying more feed. Travelling over the hills we also thought a trailed bale feeder would be more applicable and it frees up our loader as well,” Simon Stracey, Berkshire

“MORE FARMERS CHOOSE A HUSTLER BALE FEEDER THAN ANY OTHER BRAND.” – Digipol International Research Consultants

TOM HASTHORPE TRAFALGAR, VICTORIA

PAT MACKIN FISH CREEK, VICTORIA

“I’ve fed out tens of thousands of bales with my 7 year old Chainless 4000, I like the Hustler Chainless bale feeders, and I wouldn’t buy anything else”.

“As it’s feeding over the top you can see that the main part of the bale just wants to stay down, you can tell it’s not going to block. Feeds out beautifully, very happy with it.”

PAUL SHEAR VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA

PAUL SHEAR VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA

“It’s a lot smoother with how it rotates the bale. I’ve tested it on hills, going up hills and down hills, whereas my old machine used to, more so coming uphill it wanted to throw the bale out of the back of the machine, out of the cradle but the X5000 keeps it in there quite nice now. No real amount of silage hanging off the side and getting jammed. Quite impressed.”

GLENN ANDERSON TASMANIA “It’s saving us half a bale a day!” (25% of their feed costs.)

LUKE CARR COMOBELLA, AUSTRALIA “We buy and produce both round and square bales, so the Hustler X2500 Chainless bale feeder really suited our needs. It allows us to feed both types of hay quickly and without wastage.”

STEVE SYNCLAIR STONY CREEK, AUSTRALIA “This is twice as strong or more! It’s just built to do big bales, it’s designed for that kind of weight we’re throwing into them nowadays”

DAVID MITCHELL COBDEN, VICTORIA “The feed-out side of it is 100% better the way you’ve changed it”

IAN DICKSON MILAWA, VIC “We were very happy with the first one, it made the job a lot easier so we thought we’d buy another one!”

ELLA ANDERSON TASMANIA, AUSTRALIA “I have to say the new Chainless X5000 bale cart is fantastic and a great improvement on the 4000, we have noticed a big difference in the amount of hay we are feeding out and reduced wastage”.

NEW ZEALAND

CHRIS KEENAN ASHBURTON, SOUTH “We did a reasonable amount of research and it came down to 3 brands, however the Hustler Chainless system had some good advantages. I liked the Rotor system – only 2 chains which are enclosed and well protected and minimal moving parts. The ribbing on the polyethylene platform is excellent, it helps the bale to track straight & makes it easy to remove strings from square bales”

DILLON CAMERON WAITAKI VALLEY, SOUTH ISLAND “I think it’s 100% better. The X5000 seems to tease it up a lot more. The whole chassis and everything is just a bit bulkier”

ANGUS CRICKLEWOOD TAHAENUI STATION, NUHAKA, NORTH ISLAND “The Chainless X5000 is a credit to the team at Hustler. It has been well thought out and very well built. I think the company has achieved its goal of building a machine that will feed out any size or shape of bale, of any type of feed. The fact it has kept it very simple to use, and almost foolproof, should make a serious consideration for anyone in the market for a bale feeder”

NEW ZEALAND

SHIKI NAKAZAWA HAWKES BAY, NEW ZEALAND “After having feeding out more than 23,000 bales, with minimal maintenance carried out over the last 13 years and with no major breakdowns, the decision was easy. We purchased our second Chainless 2000 without hesitation.”

PHILIPPA JOBLIN RUAPUNA “It’s been really easy to use, having only been here three weeks”

WARICK HARWOOD, GOLDEN BAY “I’m 100% sure it’s the best investment I’ve made this season!”

PHILLIP HARPER CAREW “I’ve got 150 R2’s in this mob, and every one of them has got a fair go at it and there’s no trampling at all”

SCOTT CLEARWATER OTAGO “It feeds them out good. My Lucerne fine chopped bales are falling apart when I take the net off. Looks like pit silage and still feeds it out.”
