Quad-X are excited to have recently launched their new electric drop stock feeder, incorporating many market leading features, including:
- Highest ground clearance on the market, ideal for rough travelling conditions
- Low fill height for easy filling and greater stability
- Most sophisticated controller on the market with drop counter and variable distance
- Simply set the number of drops needed and it will count down to zero leaving the rider free to concentrate on driving
- The controller will alert the driver if there is a fault to avoid wastage
The Quad-X Stock Feeder is available in a manual or electric drop version, with a 380L or larger 500kg capacity feeding your entire stock in just one fill, saving time. With the feed being evenly distributed in spaced out piles, stock will stand head to head, meaning less trampling and fouling in the feed meaning less meal is wasted, saving valuable money.
When used to feed sheep in lamb, the Quad-X Stock Feeder helps to save foetal loss in ewes as it does away with crowding and shoving at the trough and ensures all animals get a fair chance to feed.
The Quad-X Stock Feeder can be easily attached to any ATV, UTV, jeep or towing vehicle making it ideal for any farmer. When it is attached to any ATV it can be operated and the flow rate controlled from the comfort of your seat. The Quad-X Stock Feeder comes with flotation tyres as standard making it ideal for use on most ground conditions. The hopper is galvanised to ensure durability and long life. This impressive machine has also proven popular for transporting feed to creep feeders and rearing units. It can be used to store feed away and protects it from vermin. Tarpaulin covers are available to keep feed dry with metal hay rack covers an option to maximise space to transport fodder along with feed.
BALE TRANSPORTER: The Quad-X Bale Transporter has been designed for transporting silage, hay, haylage and straw bales. This special trailer can be towed with an ATV, utility vehicle, car or 4×4. The Bale Transporter is ideal for bringing in bales from the field and moving them around even in wet conditions.
The Bale Transporter has been cleverly designed ensuring it is well balanced in order to reduce the weight on the drawbar of the towing vehicle. You can even re-position the transporter by hand when it is loaded with a hay bale.
The transporter was developed to make the bale mass assist with the loading, reducing the force required to load a 750kg tonne bale, allowing young people and ladies to operate and to prevent the quad rear wheels lifting during loading. The clamping arms are designed to minimise wrap damage during loading and transportation.
STOCK TRAILERS: Quad-X stock trailers are galvanised with press-strengthened sides for durability. Optional lamb dividing gates/partitions make transporting lambs, buckets and smaller items more secure. For easier loading, a small integrated swing door can be selected within the main rear door. The 5×3’3 stock trailers come with 22-11×8 flotation tyres, ideal for soft ground conditions. Choose between a swing or ramp door to suit your needs. The innovative folding sides model maximise the capacity of the trailer and when folded down allow you to load hay bales, troughs or other bulky equipment.
The 7×4 stock trailer is equipped with suspension, mudguards, wide profile tyres and a high grip aluminium ramp back door. Choose between a solid half-sided trailer or add removable galvanised mesh.
