All-electric self-propelled feed mixer
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.
