NUGENT Engineering has launched its newest agricultural product at the recent National Ploughing Championships in Tullamore, County Offaly.
Manufactured in County Tyrone, the Nugent Bale Feeder complements Nugent’s existing bale handling range and is designed to save time, money and wastage on the farm whilst reducing manual handling and prioritising the safety of both animal and operative.
Capable of being used on three point linkage, front loader or farm handler, the quick-attach automated locking system eradicates manual input required from the operator, whilst bales can also be loaded and unloaded from the comfort of the cab.
A rear guard is fitted as standard for extra protection and prevention of overspill, dramatically reducing wastage and keeping passages clear.
A high density polyethylene single piece floor reduces spillage friction to allow for easier feeding.Adjustable feed rates on the two-sided feeder can be controlled by the motor, which has been positioned through clever design to protect the user. This positioning will also ensure a maximum lifespan in combination with the zinc plated chain which protects from rust.
Heavy duty tines (which can also be used as a bale spike) along with wide flared, easy guide cones allow for simple engaging, with a coupling designed to ensure a secure connection every time.
