Imported by Opico, the trailed Verti-Mix 1201 has a mixing capacity of 12cu m and requires a tiny 60hp to run.

Standard specification of the 1201 includes the Digistar EZ2500 weighing system, an enclosed hay ring, direct hydraulic control and a single-door discharge.

A twin-door discharge and various sizes of discharge elevators are available as optional extras, with the new model starting at £22,911+VAT.
