Types of machines
The two largest categories of used machines being offered for sale through Tradus are feed mixers and silage cutters. A feed mixer, a trusted and often-used machine at many livestock farms, can mix various types of feed and offer it to the livestock. Feed mixers contain a cutting and mixing mechanism that turns the supplied ingredients into a single mixture. The animals are then offered the mixture on a conveyor or through a gutter.
A silage cutter harvests silage grass as stock for the animals. The fully dried grass is collected by a loader wagon and stacked on a pile. After the pile has been thoroughly compressed, the livestock farmer can harvest regular amounts of grass from the pit using a silage cutter.
