Tomahawk on target

CATERING for the growing trend towards indoor cattle units, Teagles trailed Tomahawk 8080S bale shredder is claimed to be a useful back-up when a conventional feeder wagon fails.

Although straw is the machines main diet, two aggressive cross beaters allow the shredder to chop silage either loaded from a clamp or as large square or round bales.

A 270í discharge shut can reach over barriers 1.55m (5ft) high, or be angled down to ground level for feeding alongside cubicles. Requiring 60hp plus, the Tomahawk 8080S can handle two round bales up to 1.8m (6ft) in diameter and square bales up to 1.3m x 1.2m x 2.5m (4ft 3in x 4ft x 8ft 3in). Price is £10,995.
