Bulk Feed Loader
High Speed Feed Hopper Conveyor Loader
The Bulk Feeder Loader™ is a versatile, hydraulically operated feed loading system designed to lift and off-load bulk feed bags up over a low profile collection hopper that concentrates product onto an adjustable high-speed conveyor. Ideally suited for moving product from a floating feed storage shed out to boat-mounted feeders.
Designed for single operator control, the Bulk Feed Loader™ requires command of three lever controls to lift and load one tonne (2,200 lb) bulk bags at a high transfer rate of twelve (12) tonnes per hour. Adjustments to feed conveyor height and operating speed ensure the Bulk Feed Loader™ is capable of loading any size feed storage hopper or vessel positioned AeroSpreader™ model feed broadcaster. No matter what the elevation or operating speed selected the feed conveyor operation is gentle on feed to ensure best-feed pellet integrity and minimum feed breakage when feed broadcasting. This careful attention to feed handling assists in maintaining best-feed conversion rates.
