Production is increased
while feed loss, labor and maintenance are reduced through the use of
Kirby Feeders. This equipment easily handles silage, haylage, grain
and alfalfa cubes or can be used as a blender to mix these
ingredients. Loaded in the field from forage harvester or loaded from
a silo, your Kirby Feeder moves directly to feeding pens and
distributes controlled amounts of feed to your livestock.
regulated from the tractor or cab, in a one-man operation, and an
exclusive belt cross feed virtually eliminates feed loss. Heavy-duty
floor slats carry the load forward to the cross feed while spiral
beaters, that easily handle fine or long cut material, turn and
thoroughly mix ingredients. The self-cleaning cross feed then deposits
feed evenly in your manger.
Kirby Feeders are built to work every day
with almost no maintenance. Our wall panels are constructed of heavy
14-gauge steel with bracing closely spaced. Floor slats are connected
to self cleaning floor chains, rated at 21,000 pounds tensile
strength, by a special connection that eliminates breakage. Gears,
drive chain and clutch are extra heavy duty. Power is distributed
through a 50 to 1 gear drive providing an even flow of material into
the cross feed, eliminating needless wear to drive components and
reducing horsepower requirements.
One look at a Kirby Feeder will
convince you it is built to last. All wagon models incorporate fifth
wheel running gear with a 360-degree turning capacity for easy
maneuverability and handling over all types of terrain. Hitches are
designed so that one man can hook up in seconds and they may be
attached to almost any tractor since horsepower requirements are so
low. Power may be derived from either PTO or hydraulic drives with a
jaw clutch permitting stopping the feed flow without stopping the PTO.
Truck mounted models are valuable in long haul situations plus
offering considerable operator comfort. They may be mounted on your
truck or ours, at the factory, by the dealer or in your own shop.
Detailed mounting instructions make the operation easy. Power is
derived from a simple hook up to the truck transmission.
