Bedding chopper self-propelled 48”
The bedding will never be a chore anymore!
Self-Propelled Bedding Chopper
The FLOTRAC is a manually operated, mobile straw chopper. This machine is specially equipped with 3 large, grooved, low-pressure tires, allowing it to be used on different types of ground. Thus, it is appropriate for use in a variety of agricultural sectors: beef lots, dairy cows and poultry (primarily turkeys, ducks, and chickens). The arm, or ergonomic lever, allows for easy movements and optimal manoeuverability. The FLOTRAC’s speed is controlled by the operator, and its auto-traction allows for easy spreading of the bedding material. The spiral shape of the blades ensures a constant flow of bedding. Two adjustable flaps located at the exit of the straw shredder allow the bedding to be distributed at the desired distance; this one can go up to 17’ (5 meters).
The ingenious design of the rotor shaft and knives discs offers a spiral pattern for smooth operation which also requires less horsepower!
The heavy-duty steel rotor is designed for low maintenance and easy knife replacement. Smooth knife spacers reduce the possibility of twine wrapping around the rotor shaft.
The large capacity tub, of 48’’ (122 cm) diameter, means fewer trips to the filling station since it can handle up to 4 small bales or large chunks of big bales
13 HP Honda engine with electric starter
A stationary version of the 48'' bedding chopper is also available
