The TF350 Trailed Stock Feeder (Sheep Snacker) features fully galvanised all-steel construction & electronic operation with high-visibility digital counter ensure the right amount of feed is dispensed, exactly where you want it. Industry-leading ground clearance and a choice of wheel / tyre options to suit your requirements.
Don’t mess around with bagged feed and troughs, the TF350 Livestock Feeder / Sheep Snacker allows you to drop the right amount of feed in the right place each time. Drop size is variable from 0.5kg to 2kg (approx), and drop spacing is controlled by the forward speed of the ATV, UTV or Quad. The digital counter ensure you know exactly how much has been deposited, and allows you to focus on checking stock condition. Operable as either a count-up timer, from o drops upwards, or as a countdown counter, whereby the desired number of drops is set, and the machine will deposit exactly that amount of feed, simply and reliably each and every time. Simple design, quality construction, and galvanised finish for a long lasting, reliable machine.
The electronic drive system on the TF350 stock feeder has few moving parts, and only rotates when in operation, reducing wear and tear, and allowing towing over longer distances. All electronic components are IP67 rated, for use in the toughest conditions. Operation is simple even when wearing thick winter gloves, and the large , brightly backlit display is easy to read even in the worst conditions. The countdown function is ideal for reliably dropping exactly the right amount of feed and freeing the operator to focus solely on checking stock condition. The control unit when off consumes minimal power, so will not flatten batteries if hard-wired onto the towing vehicle.
The TF350 trialled sheep snackerby Chapman Machinery is designed to be exceptionally strong, yet lightweight enough for use in wet, wintery conditions. Steel, fully galvanised chassis and hopper are extremely heavy duty, yet light to tow. Steel will not fade, become brittle and crack as plastic hoppers can! Conventional drum-operated machines suffer from low ground clearance – the TF350 has a minimum 300mm ground clearance, and when combined with the steel ‘belly pan’ means the TF350 can go anywhere the towing vehicle can go.
