ALready offering a huge range of vertical and paddle feeders with capacities from 7-33m3, Abbey Machinery has further extended its range of vertical twin-tub diet feeders.
To meet the needs of farmers looking for lower capacity twin-tub feeders, the company has just launched the VF 1500. This has a capacity of 15m3 and is geared towards farmers with around 100hd of stock and upwards. It is lower for loading and slightly narrower than the larger Abbey models.
The new model has numerous discharge options, a programmable weighing system, heavy duty gearbox and low horse power requirement, according to the firm.
Abbey also adds that the VF 1500 has been specially designed to give faster and more efficient mixing of feed ingredients.
There are now more than 20 models in the Abbey vertical diet feeder range consisting of single, twin and tri-auger machines with capacities ranging from 7-33m3.
The company's paddle feeders come with capacities of 10 and 14.5m3.
According to David Carty, sales of Abbey diet feeders are continuing to grow in Britain, Australia and New Zealand.
