Abbey Vertical Feeders

Diet Feeders

Abbey Vertical FeedersThe Abbey Vertical Auger mixer a class leading feeder, providing unique mixing ability with inherent build quality, thus providing customers with unique speed of mix and longevity. The Abbey vertical diet feeder range is available in 3 different options – single auger, twin auger and tri-auger. Models have capacities ranging from 7 cubic metres up to 40.5 cubic metres with a host of feed-out options.

Product Description

Option 1 is a single auger machine with 7cu³ up to 16cu³.

Option 2 is a twin auger machine 14cu³ up to 30cu³.

Option 3 is a tri auger machine 27cu³ – 40.5cu³.

The Abbey vertical feeder range comes with a host of key features and is powered by a heavy duty industrial gearbox.  This unit powers the uniquely designed mixing auger which carries out the dual function of both chopping and mixing while lifting the feed ingredients up through its gently flighted-auger and then drawn down along the side and the cycle begins again.  The Abbey vertical mixer range has the ability to handle all types of animal feed ingredients.  Roots can be chopped to the precise size for optimum animal ingestion mixing with other feed ingredients in one operation and incorporated alongside big bales of hay, straw and silage.  All ingredients can be added to make a completely mixed TMR for livestock.

Standard Equipment

The mixing auger design allows for a much lower horse power requirement than its rivals, due to its gradual flighting.  The lower auger design allows for less floor stress when adding whole hay bales, placing much less pressure on the working parts of the machines.

  • 20mm floor plate
  • 6/8mm wall plate 
  • 15mm Auger plate
  • Programmable weighing options

There are 6-8 strengthened serrated blades on each auger. The top blade on each auger is uniquely angled to rapidly draw feed into the feeder and mix quickly, which reduces mixing time and also helps to maintain feed structure.

With the Abbey vertical feeder range there is a host of feed-out options available, the Abbey vertical feeders come as standard with two doors in the SD model which can be fitted with a discharge conveyor or a hydraulic folding chute, and the RD model which is accustomed to narrower feeding situations. The FD model is a front door cross conveyor  (single door) which comes as standard with a chain and slat conveyor fixed but can also come with a PVC conveyor and can be either sliding or sliding and raised for feeding over troughs where there are obstacles the must be adhered to. Abbey have recently added a front sliding raising conveyor option for awkard to feed troughs of bunkers.

Here at Abbey we understand that fast and accurate mixing means reduced fuel usage, maintenance of feed structure and more efficient animal performance. This is why we use one best and most accurate system on the market today. The Digi-Star Programmable 3400 box com.

Why An Abbey Tub Feeder?

They have up to three times the life of conventional feeders.

Unrivalled consistency:

In chopping feed ingredients (eg. big bales, beet, hay etc)
In blending straights (indeed many feed blenders use Abbey as their mixer of choice).
In animal health and performance.
In being able to accurately observe and control your animals’ diets.
In working when you need it (reliability).
In keeping maintenance costs low as a result of the robust trouble free design of the feeder.
In being able to adapt the quantities of various ingredients to provide the animal with a balanced feed.
In blending the mix you want whilst preserving the all-important feed structure.
By providing a more aerated mix to ensure optimum ingestion and rumen health so animal get the most form the feed they eat.
