With more than 40 years of two and four-row self-propelled harvester production behind them, the latest Dewulf harvester - imported by Ashburton-based New Zealand Tractors - puts that expertise to good use in the shape of the RCA 3060.
Manufactured from UV-stable polyethylene and offered with a range of accessories such as skids and hot wire posts, the general construction offers durability, flexing with the pressure exerted by the animals, but more importantly, eliminates the wastage associated with feeding stock on the ground.
Standard Skid Troughs are available in 4m, 6m and 10m trough lengths, effectively offering 1.6, 2.4 and 4 cubic metre capacities respectively. They are said to be suitable for dairy cows, beef animals and horses.
The Mini Skid range is offered in 2m, 4m, 6m and 10m variants and features a narrower profile, making it suitable for sheep, deer and calves.
The latest introduction to the range is a wheeled version, developed following feedback from existing feedback from existing users who wanted to convenience of being able to move the feeders easily between blocks.
Available in 4m medium and large formats, or as a 6m Jumbo version, the mobile feeder incorporates a heavy-duty hot-dipped galvanised box section frame, a tow bar equipped with a stowable parking stand and low-profile, ATV style flotation tyres.
