Dutch firm Trioliet has launched a compact version of its Triotrac self-propelled mixer wagons.
The self-loading Triotrac M features a reciprocating knife cutting head at the front of the machine which can reach up to 4.5 metres high. Blocks up to 1,850mm wide and 40mm deep are cut with each pass of the silage clamp face. Material is transported to the mixing tub via a full width rotor. Weigh cells within the rotor record the weight of product included in the ration. Round or square bales, loose by-products, mineral feed and fodder beet are scooped up with the loading system.
Mixing is done in the 14cu.m tub with a single vertical auger. Auger flights are up to 25mm thick while the firm’s Trioform knives chop and process the ingredients.
Powering the unit is a 4.8-litre, four-cylinder engine from JCB, producing 175hp and positioned at the rear of the machine. Yard speed is 20kph and road speed is 40kph. The cab can be raised for a better view of the loading process, while settings for loading, mixing and discharging the feed can be adjusted with the joystick.
There are two discharge options. ’AL’ models feature a cross conveyor at the rear, while ’ZK’ models feature doors in the tub sides. Opting for the rear cross conveyor means the total length is increased from 7.29 to 8.03m, however the overall with is reduced from 2.77 to 2.55m. Overall height for both models is 2.8m.
As standard, the unit steers with the rear axle, however, there is the option of four-wheel steering, which reduces the turning circle to 10.5m.
The firm says the mixer wagon will be available in the UK during the first quarter of 2022.
