Other specifications

DAF is an alternative to the conveyor feeder. more and more dairy farmers acknowledge the effectiveness of the daf feeder :

  • to supply the TMR managed by Valmetal’s Autoration
  • to distribute silage directly from silos
  • because, contrary to other alternatives (such as motorized carts), food never comes into contact with any wheel, which ensures its freshness and quality.

Optional weight system. Except the two loadcells, all components are integrated into the control panel

  • Able to perform some inclinations(of the trail), the DAF is also available with a dual drive
  • Grease bank
  • Programmable oscillation for optimal loading

Also available with :

  • Bumpers with programmable emergency stop at each end
  • Détection d’obstacles par sonde ultrasonique
  • Obstacle detection by ultrasonic probe
  • Warning light or telephone reporting problem (in case of alarm)
  • Detection of conveyor rotation of the DAF
