Features our new high output, high torque UK designed and built 12vdc motor, heavy duty wiring loom and adjustable spread deflector plate.
This is a Solway Feeders designed machine which can be filled with pellets, wheat, barley or a mixture and towed behind an ATV, UTV or Land Rover Pickup type vehicle. The standard wiring loom supplied fits most ATV quad bikes, other looms are available at extra cost, please specify towing vehicle when ordering.
Please be aware this trailer is for off-road use only, max speed 10mph
The driver controls the release of feed by a switch connected to the wiring loom, and a spinner plate underneath the machine scatters the feed behind. Maximum speed must be less than 10mph. By scattering feed along the length of each feed ride and by planning your entire feed route carefully, you will not only save time, but you will also see your birds become wilder with less wandering and a better spread over the guns. The strong polyethylene hopper is totally weather proof and designed to flex over rough ground. The hopper has a recommended maximum capacity of 200kg, and is easily filled through the hinged, waterproof lid. A lesser feed weight and volume is recommended when traversing hilly or uneven ground. The 160mm spinning plate has raised edges to prevent spillages.The galvanised steel chassis and flexible mudguards are robust and long lasting.
The entire unit can be easily hooked up to a trailer hitch with standard 50mm ball hitch fittings. The feed rate is set based on using clean dry wheat. When feeding pellets or a mixture of pellets and wheat the feed rate will be reduced and you may need to "spin" for a longer time. It is not recommended for larger kernel such as whole maize of large sunflower seeds or the like, but we can supply a modified version for these large feeds at extra cost, please contact our sales or technical department for more information.
Used cleaned / sieved feed only, stones and foreign matter will damage your feeder and void your warranty.
The model is powered by a new UK made Solway spec 12vdc high torque high capacity motor which runs off your vehicle`s battery, featuring the new uprated looms fitted with power relay switching. We supply as standard the wiring and plugs to fit most ATV agricultural quad bikes. If you are using another type of towing vehicle utv, mule, pick-up truck or land rover etc. please specify when ordering as a different wiring loom may be available, at additional cost, contact our sales or technical team for more details. All electrical connections must be made via a 15amp inline fuse.
