JF-Stoll claims to be the first manufacturer to produce a diet feeder with a front conveyor belt and a straw spreader combination.
The VM Multi series, which has models with capacities from 10 to 45 cu m, uses vertical augers to mix and process rations which are fed out using the front conveyor.
For straw spreading, the rotor and guard unit is lowered to allow the chopped straw to pass across the conveyor to the turbine which then blasts it out into the yards – directional control is achieved by raising or lowering the chute flap.
