Overview


The extra capacity of the McHale C490 allows farmers to increase their output when bedding or feeding, especially if they may be using the machine on another farm which is some distance away from the main farm. The McHale C490 is available with an optional linkage drawbar which allows the machine greater access to tight sheds with narrow entrances.

Twin Speed Gearbox


A key feature on the C4 range is its twin speed independent gearbox, which allows the operator to easily adjust from 280 rpm for feeding silage or hay up to 540 rpm for using the machine to distribute straw for bedding.

 

Feeding


The McHale C4 range of machines are ideal machines for feeding silage and hay, the twin speed gearbox allows silage and hay 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 the material density and composition.

 

Bedding


The McHale C4 range of machines 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 McHale C4 range can pass through 300 degrees for ease of bedding. Straw can be blown up to 18m.
