VF2850 mixes 10 tons and is very well built
The Wallings run a 900 cows dairy farm in Waikato region in NZ. They purchased an Abbey VF2850 from Waikato Tractors to handle 2 x 10 ton loads per day. Their previous machine was not able to handle it. “We chose the Abbey because it was the strongest on the market. It handles the toughest conditions, and is constructed using the highest grades of materials”. It has the ability to handle precision chop silage, large round or square bales of silage, hay, straw and roots. Additional feed products such as maize and meal are also added. They mix mainly maize silage, grass silage, palm kernel, molasses, straw, minerals, and even kiwifruit, apples and bread when available. Rebecca says, “Abbey’s Digi-Star weighing system allows them to achieve consistency of the feed mix and lets us know exactly what’s going on. Our VF2850 has a rear self-steering axle, allowing it to turn in a very tight circle without having to manoeuvre and back around.”
“We have an Abbey slurry tanker for the last couple of years and it’s brilliant as well. It’s a good brand. The feeder is doing the job 110% better than our previous machine.”, concludes Rebecca.
