The T Series is ideal for operators requiring higher work rates and large capacity mixes. The T Series is fitted as standard with a heavy-duty chassis. In addition, a tandem axle is fitted from sizes 27m³ and above. The tandem axle can be fitted for improved manoeuvrability and road travel.
All T Series feeders feature a robust twenty-millimetre floor. HiSpec also incorporates vertical reinforcement to the underside of this floor. This helps to strengthen the floor from the vertical forces of feed being loaded into the machine. This feature and strength are unique to Hi-Spec. The T Series feeder body is made from eight-millimetre high-grade steel. The body is tapered to allow efficient mixing and also to maximise volume. The eight-millimetre body is very resistant to wear, and the top of the body is also tapered inwards, which helps to brace the feeder and retain the natural inherent strength. In addition, the top of the feeder is fitted with an over-flow ring to prevent spillage.
HiSpec uses Comer gearboxes as standard across its vertical feeder range. Comer Industries is a global leader in designing and producing advanced power transmissions and gearboxes. Established in Italy at the beginning of the 1970s, Comer Industries has grown to become a major supplier to over 60 countries worldwide. A robust PGA planetary reduction gearbox is provided as standard for the auger rotation. The PGA gearboxes possess strong torque characteristics to ensure the mixers cope with chopping and mixing effortlessly. Each gearbox is supplied with an independent oil reservoir. Service and maintenance are quick and convenient through an inspection hatch located on the auger. A two-speed gearbox is also fitted as standard on all T Series feeders. The two-speed gearbox allows the auger to rotate at multiple speeds. The low-speed setting allows smaller HP tractors to operate the mixers and is also used for restarting after overnight settling. Operators can choose the high-speed setting to provide complete and rapid emptying of the mixer.
The ration movement inside the feeder is critical to the final mix quality. HiSpec has developed a unique ‘Feed Motion’ for its augers to produce a smooth mixing process. The augers in the T Series are motioning the feed in both a vertical and horizontal movement. This ‘Feed Motion’ helps the mix to move in a ‘Figure 8’ motion to create an even and homogeneous feed. The unique auger design allows any material to be added to the mix. The auger also lifts the ration from the floor, ensuring the feed is in constant motion and thoroughly mixed. For chopping, the augers are fitted with self-sharpening blades. These blades are mounted on 15mm support plates for increased strength. The chopping blades are adjustable through three positions for increased or decreased cutting. In addition, two counter plates positioned on the feeder body hold the feed or bale in situ, allowing the rotating auger to chop the feed before mixing. The two counter plates are also adjustable for increased flexibility.
Four Dinamica Generale weigh-cells as standard and a DG600 display provide an extremely accurate feed weight. In addition, the DG600 display comes with a faster micro-processor than previous models and an easy-to-read white back-light display.
The DG600 allows you to:
• Build several recipes for multiple pens.
• Choose one ingredient for 99 pens and 99 ingredients for one pen or any combination.
• Mixing time control.
• Compatible with the DTM Daily TMR Software
• Utilise basic recipe and batching capabilities.
Tandem Axle Options
With increased land and time restraints, farmers want to complete their feeding as quickly as possible. A tandem axle can be fitted to enable shorter travel times between farms and less wear on the feeder. Tandem axles provide greater comfort and less stress when travelling with a load. Options are available in rear steering and non-steering. Rear steering axles provide extra manoeuvrability around your yard. Non-steering axles ensure tyres are spaced closer together to reduce tyre wear and axle strain.
