Blaneys’ New Forager X10 isn’t a best seller by chance!!
October 18, 2016
The Forager X10 bale unroller, designed and manufactured by Blaney Agri in Co Antrim is the result of nine years’ intensive product development. Blaney have a long running history of making these machines, and with an ethos of innovation and continual improvement, this bale unroller has evolved over the years to incorporate a host of improvements and enhancements to exceed expectations, with a new model launched in Winter 2015. Blaney is a truly innovative company, only taking on product design where they can add value and innovation to improve efficiencies in terms of savings in time or fuel and to enhance performance.
The Forager X10 is now a well proven, life-changing piece of equipment and for many customers has become the most prized tool they own, being easy on the back and the pocket, saving hours of daily back breaking labour and reducing bale waste by around 20%.
Perthshire farmer Donald Menzies says “Before I got my Forager X10L, I had to wait at least 2 ½ hours a day on my diet feeder mixing, tying up my tractor and using a lot of fuel. Now with the Forager X10L I get all the feeding done in just half an hour”.
The new Forager X10 was re-engineered and launched in Winter 2015 with a host of enhanced features, outperforming any other type of equipment on all bale types. For many farms, a great aspect of the Forager X10 is that it is a one man and one tractor operation. Feeding a silage bale is as easy as 1-2-3, with the Forager X10 able to lift, load and feed – all from the comfort of your cab. It offers a fast and effective solution for feeding out round bales to reduce the need for manual forking, to get the job done quickly and easily for better thriving animals, less wastage and improved profits.
Blaney enhanced the new model Forager X10 bale carriers, making them 25% stronger. Drive components are capable of withstanding forces well in excess of 50000 Newton’s, and more powerful hydraulics give generous capabilities to work with the heaviest bales year after year. Innovative triple feed out spikes, new bale chamber and unique side rollers are designed to deal with the most difficult bales.
The new Forager X10 is more compact, ideal for getting into tight spaces and narrow passageways. Its unique safety guards to protect livestock from injury are now 50% stronger and more compact. The extra thick 50mm sprung tines are designed for road travel and developed to handle the heaviest bales.
The Forager X10L, a special loader/telehandler version of the bale unroller, is also built to this enhanced specification. Fitted to any front loader or telescopic, it means that high stacked bales are no longer a problem and silage can be fed along passageways, into feeders or used to unroll into mixer wagons to speed up processing times. For those with troughs or barriers to feed over, the X10W with extension sides is ideal for getting silage into these hard to reach feeding areas.
The Blaney Agri machinery range has been developed to tackle some of the toughest conditions that Ireland and UK can throw at it. Famed for its ample rainfall and heavy grass crops, Blaney Agri is ideally located to build and test the most high performance silage feeding machines. With innovation firmly planted in the DNA of this manufacturing firm, the relentless attitude of Blaney’s engineering and technical team results in continual improvement of designs and processes and the development and manufacture of the best machines.
The Blaney Forager X10 is a proven machine which gives great performance and comes from an established brand with a customer service and technical support team for your peace of mind.
If you prefer to process your bales, the Blaney Agri Bale Shredder has been designed to save you time and money involved in feeding and bedding livestock, typically labour intensive jobs. The large diameter rotor serves for faster bale throughput to get each task done as quickly and efficiently as possible, shredding a bale in as little as 2 ½ minutes, making it the fastest round bale shredder available for silage. This has been achieved by maximising material flow within the drum and rotor, through extensive computer-aided simulation and on-farm testing.
This Bale Shredder serves as a multipurpose machine with more capabilities for feeding livestock, not only along passageways but also over the fence or gate into feed trailers and troughs for those out-wintering stock. Imagine how much easier each day would be this winter without the need for a lot of manual work involved in forking and pushing forward silage.
