    Mixing feed has advantages for both the farmer and livestock. Uniformly mixed feed components provide better nutrition, improved feed efficiency and cost, and the opportunity to reduce wastage. In dry times, when much of the feed is purchased off farm with higher costs, wastage and efficiency are even more critical. Improved nutrition benefits milk yield or weight gain and contributes to animal health and fertility.

    The Strautmann Verti-Mix feed mixer, featuring the Vario2 mixing auger, has been built to suit Australian paddock conditions.

    FEATURES OF THE VERTI-MIX TRIPLE AUGER FEED MIXER WAGON

    CONSTRUCTION

    Verti-Mix Simple Construction
    • The simple construction, is built for strength, long life and low maintenance
    • Thick steel plate is used in the critical mixing components for long life
    • The ST 52-3 steel gives strength and long wear life
    • The base plate is 20mm, the auger is 15mm and the bowl walls are 8mm thick
    Verti-Mix Spring Axles
    • Tandem leaf spring suspension reduces shock loads to the chassis when feeding out in the paddock, common in Australian conditions (VM 3451)
    • Tridem leaf spring axles with front and rear steering in VM 4501 model
    • Fully loaded, the wagon handles farm roads and public roads
    • The axle has hydraulic brakes and a manually applied parking brake
    • Wheel chocks are also included

    MIXING

    Verti-Mix Gearbox
    • PTO shaft with wide angle joint at the tractor end allows PTO operation to continuously turn over the mix while travelling
    • Front 2-speed gearbox is electrically shifted from the cabin control box
    • Main speed is used for mixing
    • The higher second speed is used for clear out of the bowl
    • Auger drive shafts are fitted with individual shear bolt protection
    Verti-Mix Mixing Stepped Auger
    • The spiral auger is an effective mixer
    • The Strautmann Vario2 auger is stepped along the spiral causing and additional lift and tumble of the feed materials, increasing the mixing action and mixing efficiency while maintaining feed structure
    • Testing has shown the Vario2 auger has a lower power equipment compared to a smooth spiral auger
    Verti-Mix Mixing Auger with stainless steel anti-wear strips
    • The sabre shaped knives on the auger have two positions (standard or extended for increased cutting action)
    • Additional scraper on auger for even and faster emptying
    • Auger fitted with stainless steel anti-wear strips reducing auger loss from moist mixes
    Verti-Mix Bale Cutter Knives
    • Optional bale cutting knife mounting angles the top knife upwards for faster break up of bales
    Verti-Mix counter Knives
    • The mixing bowls have 2 counter knives
    • The counter knife position is manually set, or optionally hydraulically operated
    • With counter knives set in the full inward position, this creates increased resistance for the movement of feed material in the bowl, thereby increasing the cutting action of the auger knives.
    • Unchopped silage or long straw stubble can be chopped during mixing by using the counter knives
    Verti-Mix Oil Reservoir
    • The auger reduction gearbox is oil filled with external oil reservoirs for easy maintenance, while the top auger bearing is greased
    • Mixing over flow ring retains bales as they are being broken down

    FEEDOUT

    Verti-Mix Mixer Feedout
    • Multiple discharge door options are available: Front and rear; left and right; and front or rear cross conveyor
    • Front right hand discharge door is standard onto 1240mm long conveyor with adjustable belt speed and angle

    CONTROLS

    Verti-Mix Controls
    • The cabin mounted control box for the electro-hydraulic system controls 3 functions: door open-close; conveyor raise-lower; and conveyor speed
    • 2 speed gearbox with electric change (for mixing and emptying) is controlled from the control box
    Verti-Mix TMR 3610 Weight Scales
    • Topcon/ TMR 3610 Digi-Star
    • Full feed management capability
    • Program rations, pens and stock numbers
    • Keep up to date changes
    • Compatible with TMR Tracker and Feed Management Software 

    LONG CONVEYOR

    Verti-Mix 3.5m Long Conveyor
    • Optional 3.5 metre long conveyor with hood for filling of 8 foot high self-feeder bins
    • The long conveyor can be operated from the horizontal position (for conventional troughs or ground feed-out) to maximum height for self-feeders
    • The long conveyor PVC conveyor belt has large horizontal cleats and scalloped surface to efficiently convey grain mixes
    Verti-Mix 3.5m Long Conveyor
    • Independent safety-locking hooks secure the long conveyor in transport position
    • Conveyor operation is integrated with the electro-hydraulic controls
    • Steel hydraulic lines are used extensively for durability
    • 1.8m long conveyor is also available in lieu of standard

    OPTIONS

    • Hydraulically driven roller mill can be mounted on top of the mixing bowl. Grain can then be milled as it is aded to the mixer
    • Rare earth magnets mounted to the auger capture and hold inadvertent metal in the feed materials, protecting animal health and reducing injury
    • Multiple discharge doors and conveyors
