Cutmans Engineering has been able to develop a grain auger that vastly improves product quality, while their range of hay feed-out trailers can significantly reduce feeding costs.
Cutman’s Engineering hydraulic drive grain auger has a vastly simplified design to maximise reliability and substantially reduce maintenance costs.
To ensure continuous delivery throughout harvest these hydraulically driven augers have been built to eliminate the use of parts most typically associated with wear, tear and breakage such as pulleys, belts and bearings.
The reliability and loading capacity of Cutman’s augers is paramount to their design, with a 27kW (37hp) Kohler petrol engine that maximises flow rates with delivery of up to 3 tonnes/min.
Ground drive comes as standard, the high torque hydraulic motor connects directly onto the tail-shaft to provide differential drive to the wheels and positive drive in the roughest conditions. It is easily disconnected for transport.
Other standard functions include spring mounting to reduce shock loading in rough conditions, avoiding damage to the auger and associated maintenance costs.
It also increases transport towing speed capacity.
An electric winch further enhances handling and improves safety measures. To save time, the fuel tank can be removed for refuelling, eliminating the need to transport the auger to the fuel source.
Another area that Cutmans is now specialising in is manufacturing stock feeding equipment.
Cutmans Engineering’s range of Feedmax feed-out trailers tease out the hay to create a windrow that is both softer and therefore more palatable to stock.
Producers prefer a windrow as opposed to feeding out hay clumps or biscuits that can result in greater wastage through trampling as stock compete for access.
Buyers of Cutmans Engineering’s Feedmax range have reported decreased usage of feed up to 30%, and that can pay back the purchase cost of the unit within 12 months depending on the size of operation.
Feedmax feed-out trailers also reduce labour costs by enabling the operation to be undertaken by one person.
The rotors on Feedmax Feed-out Trailers are driven independent of the floor chain.
The capacity to vary both the drive speed of the rotors and the rate of feed of bales to the rotors creates the capacity to significantly vary the size of windrow produced.
It also creates the capacity to vary the coarseness of the material: a higher rotor speed to floor chain speed ratio produces finer material, a higher floor chain speed to rotor speed ratio produces more coarse material.
The Feedmax 2 is capable of feeding out two 8x4x4 or 8x4x3 square bales or two 6×4 round bales. It is available either as a PTO tractor tow unit or an Engine Drive ute towed unit.
The Feedmax 4, 6 and 12 are larger, tractor-driven models capable of carrying four, six or twelve 8x4x4 or 8x4x3 square bales respectively. These models can also handle round bales.
