All-elec­tric self-pro­pelled feed mixer

Irish Examiner - Farming - - TECHNOLOGY FOCUS -

Agriscot show judges were im­pressed enough by Kver­neland’s new all-elec­tric self-pro­pelled Silok­ing e-truck ver­ti­cal feed mixer to give it a highly com­mended rec­om­men­da­tion in the in­no­va­tion com­pe­ti­tion at the re­cent agri­cul­tural event in Ed­in­burgh. Cost­ing from about £80,000 (about €90,000) in the UK, the mixer comes in a va­ri­ety of sizes and can cater for about five dis­pensed mixes on one charge of elec­tric­ity, us­ing a fork­lift-proven elec­tric drive sys­tem.

It uses about three kilo­watts of power per tonne of feed mixed, and its run­ning costs are said to be about a third of a diesel-pow­ered ver­sion.
