McHale's new range

In 2010, McHale launched the first machine in its silage feeder & straw blower range, the C460.

This machine has been very well accepted in the market. As a direct result of its success McHale have had requests from users for a linkage machine and a machine which could handle two five foot bales.

At the FTMTA Farm Machinery Show in Punchestown & the National Ploughing Championship in Tullamore, McHale who have always been a company to react quickly to market demand will add two new machines to its silage feeder & straw blower range.

The McHale C430, is a 3 point linkage silage feeder & straw blower.The McHale C460 L is a trailed machine which has the capacity to handle two 5ft bales.

The McHale Silage Feeder & Straw Blower range consists of a versatile range of machines, which can be used for feeding short fibre silage and can also be used to easily distribute long fibre fodder such as hay and straw. The three models in the McHale silage feeding straw blowing range can either feed round or square bales.

The three machines in the McHale Silage Feeding & Straw Blowing Range share a number of common features which deliver optimum performance.

A key feature in the McHale Silage Feeding & Straw Blowing range is the machines twin speed independent gearbox, which allows the operator to easily adjust the rpm from 280 rpm for feeding silage or hay up to 540 rpm for using the machine to distribute straw for bedding.

Feeding: The McHale Silage Feeding & Straw Blowing Range are ideal for feeding silage and hay, the two speed gearbox allows silage to be distributed exactly where it is desired. The speed of the conveyor is proportionally controlled, allowing the operator to adjust feeding speed depending on material density and composition.

Bedding: The McHale Silage Feeding & Straw Blowing models can be used to distribute bedding material quickly and efficiently leaving a thick aerated bed of straw. In difficult to access bedding areas, the chute on the range can pass through 300 degrees for ease of feeding. Straw can be blown 18m on the right hand side and 13m to the left hand side of the machine.

The direction and height of the feeding chute can be controlled via an integrated joystick on the control console in the tractor cab. With the three models in the McHale range, there is a model to suit every user’s requirements.
