With an increasing demand from end users for a machine that can process straw, hay, silage or haylage with little or no adjustment for feeding, chopping or bedding, Kidd Farm Machinery Ltd have developed the 475T TC – the first of its kind on the market – and will show it at LAMMA 2019 at the NEC (Hall 6, Stand No. 200).
With a 4.75cu m wide body capacity, the new addition to the Kidd Bale chopper range, the 475T TC Bale Shredder and Straw chopper can handle 2 round bales, or 2 big square bales (80cms x 120cms) side by side.
A smart conveyor conveys the crop material automatically to the hydraulically adjusted and pivoting comb. The smart conveyor reduces process time, hang ups and evens the material flow over the beater, into the chopping mechanism and fan. Crop flow is maximised at all times without blocking or stopping. Set the 475 running and the smart conveyor controls the process – all controlled at the touch of a button!
The 475 will shred and spread un-chopped straw for bedding, or when the chopping mechanism is selected will give an infinitely variable short chop length from 30 – 60mm which is suitable for a TMR ration.
A high power belt drive smoothly transmits more power safely without any snatch and grab.
The new bale processor from Kidd Farm Machinery is a high capacity, versatile machine that can handle all straw types for bedding and feeding and any green material for feeding, it comes with a high capacity fan, heavy duty flails and chopping mechanism, 3 stage swivel chute, in – cab electric controls, wide angle pto and smart conveyor.
