West Wagons on The boil

The West Seko Sam 5 has a 15cu m capacity and uses twin horizontal augers, equipped with blades, to chop and mix forage rations.

A wide intake hopper at the rear allows users to add concentrates or minerals as required. The mix components are drawn to the centre of the wagon to create a boiling effect – this is where the mixing occurs.

This version is fitted with a right-hand discharge conveyor which can be swapped to the left in a matter of hours, says the firm.

Three weigh cells – one on the drawbar and another two on the axle – provide a cumulative weigh-in function. With a 80hp power requirement, it will set you back £26,358.
