Reversible Hydraulic Driven Floor – with variable speed control to back material off the beaters and give more control when feeding User Friendly Hydraulics – mounted on a stalk which can be controlled from the tractor seat
Tanalized Timber Floor and Sides – unlike metal floor and sides which rot due to corrosive nature of silage and feed effluent, the Foster Forage Box is the only one on the market with timber which is tanalized to prevent rot and avoid rust. Box Section Top Guard Rail – sits on top of the tanalized wooden sides to protect them from any damage from loaders when loading
Clever Cross Conveyor – brush strip assembly’s are mounted to sit at each side of the belt to prevent material getting under the belt, with automatic groove cleaners on the rollers to get rid of any that does sneak through !
Aggressive Auger Beaters – capable of dealing with the most dense shear grab blocks whilst the auger flights on each shaft are at different angles and timed differently so that they effectively mix in layered concentrates, cereals, minerals and chopped straw.
Case Hardened Bed Chains – with thick steel slats provide robust construction with self cleaning drive sprockets to protect and prolong life
