The V series vertical augers from HiSpec are a range of feeders from 7 to 16m³ with a single auger. A single discharge door is standard. The strength and quality of workmanship is easy to see on the V Series. An independent reinforced chassis and a single axle provide a solid base for the feeder body. There is a choice of tyre options to vary either the loading or feedout height. The independent chassis features four Digi-Star weigh-cells as standard; one on each corner; and these weigh-cells provide an extremely accurate indicator of feed weight.

All V Series feeders feature a robust twenty millimetre floor. HiSpec also incorporate 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 is unique to HiSpec.
The V Series feeder body is made from eight millimetre high-grade steel. The body is tapered to allow efficient mixing and to also 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. The top of the feeder is fitted with an over-flow ring to prevent spillage.
HiSpec uses Comer gearboxes as standard across our vertical feeder range. Comer Industries is a global leader in the design and production of advanced power transmissions and gearboxes. Established in Italy in the beginning of the 1970’s, Comer Industries has grown to become a major supplier to over 60 countries worldwide.
A robust PGA planter reducing gearbox is provided as standard for the auger rotation. The PGA gearboxes possess strong torque characteristics to ensure that the mixers cope with chopping and mixing effortlessly. Each gearbox is supplied with an independent oil reservoir. Service and maintenance is quick and convenient through an inspection hatch located on the auger.
Fitted on sizes greater than 12m³, 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 two speed gearbox is an optional extra on sizes 12m³ and smaller.
The V Series feeders use a central auger to carry out both the chopping and mixing functions. The auger does this in a very simple cycle action. Firstly it draws the feed up the central flighting and then allowing it to fall down the tapered sides to repeat the cycle again. All the while, the auger is also rotating the feed around the body of the feeder.
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 different positions for increased or decreased cutting. Two counter plates positioned on the feeder body hold the feed or bale in-situ and this allows the rotating auger to chop the feed before mixing. The two counter plates are also adjustable for increased flexibility.
Four Digi-Star weigh-cells as standard and an EZ3410 display provide an extremely accurate feed weight. The EZ3410 display comes with a faster micro-processor than previous models and an easy to read white back-light display.
The EZ3410 allows you to:
