Kverneland has expanded its Siloking self-propelled diet feeder line-up with the introduction of the four model System 300+ in the SelfLine 4.0 range.
This new version represents the smallest SelfLine 4.0 conventional chassis machine currently available from the manufacturer and is offered with four capacities; 19, 22, 25 and 27 cubic metres.
It slots into the range between the 13 to 22cu.m rear-steer, tricycle-style Compact and Premium chassis models and the larger System 500+ and System 1000+ models that span a range of capacities from 19 to 32cu.m.
Based on the System 500+ version, the new, smaller models offer an air suspended chassis with four-wheel steering and a 25kph road speed. Power comes from a 218hp Volvo engine, with 1,000-hour service intervals.
Equipped with a two metre wide milling head, that supplies the mixing tub using a 700mm wide belt conveyor, the System 300+ boasts twin vertical augers with adjustable, hardened knives and the manufacturer’s integral FlowPlus hopper ring to improve bale processing.
Discharge options include a hydraulic cross-conveyor and rear doors.
For the operator, the cab includes a seven inch colour display showing machine functions including discharge door indicator, mixing speed and weighing data. The manufacturer’s programmable weighing system with feed management software is also included. A colour camera system with quad display offers connectivity of up to a maximum of four cameras, offering scope to watch feed discharge and tub mixing, for example, in addition to a standard rear-view.
Those regularly handling high volumes of straw can now opt for an integral straw chopper. Available across the SelfLine 4.0 range, this new development sits behind the milling head and is activated by the push of a button from the cab. This hydraulically driven straw processor delivers a chop length from 20 to 40mm, helping to shorten mixing times when including straw within rations, says the manufacturer.
Dimensions of the System 300+ models include an overall height from 2.9 to 3.53m, depending on body capacity, an overall width of 2.54m and an overall length of 8.9 to 9.4m. List price of the System 300+ self-propelled feeder models start at £249,104, for the 19cu.m model.
