The Boss UTE Trailed is a two bale feeder designed to be towed behind a two or four wheel drive utility vehicle or smaller tractors without hydraulic outlets. The hydraulics are operated from within the vehicle using a remote control.
The Ute-Trailed feeder is identical to and has all the great features of the two Bale Trailed Feeder already on the market, the only difference being the power pack. It can load and carry the second bale on the loading arms, while feeding out the first bale without even having to get out of the vehicle. It feeds the bale out smoothly from both sides on a strong solid pin roller chain and with an adaption kit can also feed out square bales.
Motor and power pack
The Boss UTE Trailed is powered by a Japanese Honda Motor and Breveni power pack.
Feeds out both sides
The Boss Trailed is designed to feed out from both sides so it doesn't matter which way in the bale is loaded. This also makes it easy to work on the side of a hill.
Wide wheel base
For extra stability, especially when working on the side of a hill, the wheel base is perfectly proportioned so that the cradle will not tip and the bale will not roll out. The wheels do not run over the windrow as they travel just inside allowing full utilisation of feed.
Round and square bales
The Boss Trailed is designed to feed out both round and square bales (with the addition of a square bale kit)*efficiently, eliminating the need to buy a second machine.
With a 15 000lb, 12mm ⌀ solid pin roller chain there will never be a need to replace, guided roller chain. Weight is absorbed by rollers not bars, delivering a quiet operation.
Enclosed drive shaft
The drive shafts are fully enclosed to prevent silage/hay from wrapping around moving parts resulting in congestion and loss of power.
A one piece, cast iron drive system means there is more surface for the drive dog to drive on and will not break as opposed to pins. A 400cc heavy duty, hydraulic motor powers the drive shaft directly with no primary drive chains and allows the direct transfer of power with less parts to wear.
The feeder body is fully enclosed (floor, front, back) meaning there is no wastage of feed through the cradle and its curvature ensures every last bit is fed out. The feed bed is made of pressed steel for extra strength and durability. The cradle is slightly longer than most other machines (1.560m) meaning it can easily accomodate a 6 ft bale or those odd bales you sometimes have.
The unique design incorporates 4 bushes instead of bearings, which corrode over time with the acid secreted from silage. The bushes are low maintenance with only grease nipples used to maintain the whole machine.
The bars on the Boss feeder range are welded directly onto the guided roller chain rather than just bolted ensuring optimum strength at the point of contact. Box section bars bear significantly more weight than angle iron.
