LEADING agricultural manufacturer Quicke has released the new range of Silocut implements to increase efficiency and safety when managing silage.
Quicke has provided the farming industry with innovative solutions for seven de-cades with front loaders and associated implements. With the launch of the Silocut it continues to be the leaders in innovation and digitalisation within agriculture whilst maintaining unrivalled performance, quality and versatility.
The Silocut range comes with various options to ensure it matches the requirements of the user and is available in three different sizes:
Silocut M+: Available as a forged featuring high quality, replaceable bolt on tines or profile tine implement, a forged tine version which has profile cut “tuff tines” welded in the tine carriage providing excellent wear capabilities.
The Silocut guarantees a smooth and clean cut from silage stock pit to ensure high quality silage. The width and capacity are ideal for front end loaders, compact wheel loaders and mid-sized telehandler use. Various accessories, such as bolt on screens, will allow end users to customise the implement to suit their personal needs.
Silocut L+: Available with forged or profiled cut “tufftines” but also a highly versatile bucket.
The L+ is a highly efficient implement for both cutting clamp silage and splitting bales, no need for a second implement! It allows handling of different silage types, silage bales with the bucket also handling loose fodder and feed, again without changing implement when feeding animals, saving valuable time.
Powerful cylinders and a large opening allow most common silage bales to be split with ease, ensuring a complete cut with the unique cutting system incorporated into the side gables of the Silocut L+.
Silocut XL+: This model is a high-capacity shear grab that can be used for cutting clamp silage and splitting bales.
It is offered in the same three versions as the smaller L+. The robust and well-tested design grants long service life and peace of mind.
Both the Silocut L+ and XL+ are available with two additional innovations, a bale wrap handler as well as a push out mechanism.
The bale wrap handler makes it possible, after splitting the bale, to grab the wrap and net and retain it, meaning no need for removing the wrap by hand anymore, increasing operator safety.
The bale can be opened, split and placed into the two separate feeder units or directly into the diet feeder or mixer in one process, giving substantial time savings.
The profile cut “tufftine” versions can be equipped with a push-out mechanism which facilitates the unloading into diet feeders or feeding in passage ways with limited space.
