Hustler’s latest release, the 450kg BaleSlice, allows farmers to quickly and easily split up their silage, hay and straw bales without leaving the tractor cab.
The firm’s new product allows tractor operators to “achieve more every day by speeding up feeding operations with the strength of a durable design”.
Some of its features include a four-year warranty, a “smart” hydraulic ram positioning, a top-down natural cut, a hook wrap holder, an optimum cutting radius and a 75” bale knife.
A company spokesperson claims that the BaleSlice – which you can use for round or square bales – can also save time and result in cleaner farm film removal.
“It guarantees a fast loading of your feed out or mixer wagon and reduces the mixing time,” they noted.
“Only one operator can easily grip and slice the bale while depositing the farm film to save money, time and labour.”
“Meanwhile, you can stay in the cab on those wet, winter days. Remove the wrap and slice the bale from your tractor seat.”
“This decreases the risk of wrap getting in your wagon, preventing the risk of ingestion to your livestock when feeding.”
“For cleaner wrap remove, a secure and positive four-hook wrap removal system will keep the smell of wrap away from the tractor cab or air conditioning.”
According to the company, its LX190 is currently available in North America, New Zealand, and you can choose between Euro Hitch brackets and Skidsteer brackets – 3ptl.
The firm – which is headquartered in New Zealand – has been designing and building farm equipment since 1961.
It combines what it describes as “an understanding of farming, a passion for discovering better ways to do everyday tasks and a love of machines with creativity”.
