Hustler Chainless 2000 Bale Feeder

Hustler Chainless 2000 Bale Feeder

Square and Round Bale Feeder...

The Chainless 2000™ balefeeder is a compact, single bale feeder that attaches to the tractor by the 3 point linkage, suitable for small to medium farms. Updated for 2012 with a new and stronger back fence, more adjustment in the freeflow wiper panel the Chainless 2000 can't be beaten for efficiency, reliability and durability whilst being very easy to use. 

CH2000 has no feed chains and handles virtually all types and conditions of square and round bales using the unique teasing feed out action.

What people say... "I have purchased a Chainless 2000.  I was impressed with how quickly my staff picked up how to use the machine.  It has exceeded my expectations as to how well it feeds out 12 month old flattened bales!"

5 advantages of a Chainless Bale Feeder...
1: Simple and Safe Design - The innovative Chainless design eliminates feed chains, meaning fewer moving parts. The result is very low maintenance plus simple and safe operation.
2: Rounds and Squares - The true square and round balefeeder range found on the New Zealand market today, the Chainless range allows you to feed out virtually any bale you have on hand with ease.
3: The feed save - Our Chainless feeders use your feed efficiently; you can infinitely vary the amount of feed flowing over the side by adjusting the speed of either the feed rotors or the tractor speed. Thin for sheep, thick for your dairy heard - no problem with Chainless! Tight core, sloppy balage - no problem with Chainless! The infinitely adjustable bale chamber let you choose the bale pressure on demand from the cab
4: No hassle rotors - Designed to tease the bale out rather than simply unroll it, our rotors are self-cleaning, eliminating feed wrapping.
5: Long life Feedbed - Our polyethylene feedbed is slippery to reduce bale friction when feeding out and it's also non-corroding, extremely tough and has been proven on 1000's of farms worldwide.

Self loading...
The Chainless 2000 is self-loading. First the feeding cradle is disconnected by the pull of a rope. The tractor backs up and picks up the bale, then moves it to the platform.
The operator can then stop to remove the net wrap before placing the bale on the platform. Our 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 their unequal length tynes) and is now ready to feed out. This simple, quick loading operation helps to minimise the job. 

Feeds both/any Bale Type -  Feeds rounds and square easily > Doesn’t matter which way the bale goes on > Feeds balage, Hay, Straw, etc 
Rotors - Top rotor turns 3 times faster than bottom rotor - excellent teasing action provides fluffed up windrow reducing wastage > No troublesome feed chains to jamb, stretch or break > Fully enclosed drive transmission protected from damage > Paddles for handling even the sloppiest of bales > Spiral timed teeth for smooth running
Teeth - 
Rotor teeth release the feed off the taper at the correct point 
Freeflow wiper -  Prevents long chop bales from jambing > Requires less power to drive due to free flowing design > Adjustable to suit any preference of feeding and allow additional reach 
Adjustable platform height - Infinitely variable bale pressure control from inside the cab allows you to feed out the tightest bale cores or the sloppiest of bales > Built in height guides for easy feeding > Safety latch so operators can't drive out while platform is up > For different bale types blank bars or bars with more aggressive teeth are available
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 > Built in bale guides to keep bales tracking straight
Drive system - Heavy duty hardened 1” drive pins 400cc motor
Weight - 490kg is the lighter components allow a greater strength to weight ratio. 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 
Bale Security - The high rear bar means the bale cannot screw off the back on hills and is now stronger to handle heavier bales
Feet - Designed for minimal damage to wet ground
Low maintenanceOutboard bearing blocks are in a good position to keep clean and greased > Automatic drive chain tensioners mean no adjustment are necessary > self aligining bearings are free running and protected behind drive covers
