Hastings-based Hustler Equipment recently unveiled the Combi RX² Series 2 multi-feeder wagon (series 2).

The Series 2 builds on the success of the Combi RX multi-feeder range, launched in 2019, that had built a reputation for its ability to feed any feed type, ease of loading and visibility.

The Combi RX brought to market a simple and unique pusher design which eliminated high maintenance chains, bars, gearboxes and the constant adjustments associated with conventional feed-out wagons.

“After more than five years of invaluable market feedback from users and owners, the release of Combi RX² (series 2) will bringing a further leap in reliability, even lower maintenance and we’ve also made it more user-friendly to operate,” said Brent Currie, CEO of Hustler Equipment.

“Whilst many of the improvements appear subtle, they all add up to another significant step forward from its predecessor, an answer to the demands of the market.”

Building on the original Combi RX features that included versatility, chainless simplicity, a trouble-free stepless floor and load-dividing design, the key enhancements include a wider crossfloor, removing potential crushing and jamming, while also reducing operator error.

In addition, angled front chassis rails allow for tighter turns without tire-to-chassis contact, helping to improve manoeuvrability, while a new plastic bonnet and redesigned antenna enhance visual appeal and protect the FeedLink scale and feed management system from unintentional damage.

Reliability has been enhanced with an improved elevatormotor retaining system, larger pusher rams to handle heavier loads and an improved spring and sub-frame design on the RX218 for reduced greasing and wear.

A redesigned pusher blade has reduced overall weight and increase strength, while larger diameter 20-ply tyres help increased load ratings and durability.

An optional, factory fitted, trough feeding kit features unique feedbars and a curved elevator for precise feed drop placement, making the machine suitable for ideal for trough feeding, feedpads or over-fence situations.
