Blaney Agri say their latest Forager X10 will become a farmers favorite, being easy on the back and the pocket, as well as saving hours of daily back breaking labour and reducing bale waste by around 20%.
The new Forager X10 has been re-engineered and launched this autumn with a host of enhanced features, outperforming any other type of equipment on all bale types.
For many farms, a great aspect of the Forager X10 is that it is a one man and one tractor operation. Feeding a silage bale is as easy as 1-2-3, with the Forager X10 able to lift, load and feed – all from the comfort of your cab. It offers a fast and effective solution for feeding out round bales to reduce the need for manual forking, to get the job done quickly and easily for better thriving animals, less wastage and improved profits.
Blaney have enhanced the new model Forager X10 bale carriers making them 25% stronger. Drive components are capable of withstanding forces well in excess of 50000 Newton’s, and more powerful hydraulics give generous capabilities to work with the heaviest bales year after year. Innovative new feed out spikes, new bale chamber and unique side rollers are designed to deal with the most difficult bales.
The new Forager X10 is now more compact, ideal for getting into tight spaces and narrow passageways. Its unique safety guards to protect livestock from injury are now 50% stronger and more compact. The extra thick 50mm sprung tines are designed for road travel and developed to handle the heaviest bales.
The Forager X10L, a special loader/telehandler version of the bale unroller, is also being built to this enhanced specification. Fitted to any front loader or telescopic, it means that high stacked bales are no longer a problem and silage can be fed along passageways, into feeders or used to unroll into mixer wagons to speed up processing times.
Perthshire farmer, Donald Menzies uses the Forager X10 L and is impressed with the savings it brings. “Before I got the ForagerX10L I had to wait at least 4 hours a day on my diet feeder mixing, tying up my tractor and using a lot of fuel. Now with the Blaney Forager X10 I get all the feeding done in no time.”
