In response to demand for an update to its Tomahawk 9090 Feeder Bedder, Teagle Machinery has launched the new Tomahawk 9500 model for the 2015/16 season. The wider body design of the New T9500 increases capacity and eases loading, whilst performance is improved with a large diameter fan and twin cross-beaters which together deliver an increased output of straw, baled chopped silage and clamped materials.
Capacity has been increased from 6m3 to a cavernous 8m3, however, an overall length of only 5.2 metres ensures that this compact machine has excellent manoeuvrability around farm buildings.
The 9500 positions itself near the top end of the British Built Tomahawk range from the UK market leader, next to its big brother the T1010. Both models are available in side and swivel chute formats with braked axle and weigh cell options also available.
In another “first”, Teagle have fitted Bluetooth wireless technology to provide convenient communication between operator and machine. Extensive field testing highlighted the benefits of a compact in-cab control panel and simple 12V supply to the machine.
The wide body design (the feed chamber measures a generous 1.68 metres wide) was originally introduced by Teagle in 2011 in its T8500 series. It incorporates a large diameter fan for greater air flow and blow distance, with a Hardox coating within the fan housing which ensures longevity for the high work rates expected from this new machine. For operators looking to feed a simple mixed diet to their stock the machine can be supplied with optional weigh cells and a recirculation system. Jim Squires, UK Sales Manager states “when discussing requirements with customers it is clear a number are looking for reliable performance, maximum flexibility and high utilisation from their machinery, the 9500 has been designed with these requirements foremost in our minds”.
The model comes “suited and booted” with a durable oven baked powder coat paint system applied following thorough shot blasting of steel components. Large 305/55 R22 tyres, mudguards and road lights and fitted as standard in recognition of existing 9090 operators frequently using their machines on more than one site. Braked axles can be supplied upon request.
