More feeding options from Kverneland Siloking

A host of updates are available across the Siloking feeder range, including a new battery-powered range of eTrucks, a stepless auger gearbox on trailed models and the ability to run self-propelled diesel models on HVO fuel (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil).

This second generation Siloking eTruck now includes models from 12-20 cubic metres capacity, and unlike its predecessor, the range has been designed from the outset as a robust, high-tech 20 cube model.

The design concept makes it easier to produce smaller eTruck models that have been engineered from the same range-topping 20 cube machine, rather than upscaling a 12-cube model.

As a result, the eTruck sheds its former lead-acid battery power in favour of advanced battery technology with lithium ion phosphorous cells, creating a 96-volt battery-electric vehicle. This advanced BEV technology affords low-noise, zero-emission feeding that can deliver from two to four mixings without recharging, and projected battery life allows for 3,000-5,000 full charge cycles.

The eTruck uses Siloking’s SelfLine cab, centrally mounted at the front of the chassis.

High capacity TrailedLine mixers, which offer twin and triple auger designs, are available with Variospeed – a stepless gearbox that requires less horsepower to drive and lower start-up torque to engage.

It is a development that allows larger capacity mixers to be operated without the need for ever more powerful tractors.

Three pre-defined auger speeds can be selected to suit cutting, mixing and emptying, with push-button control available, along with activation from the handler used for loading. The benefits of Variospeed can include reduced fuel consumption, easier speed changes for enhanced mixing efficiency, plus lower driveline vibration.

Working with its engine supplier, Siloking has thoroughly tested and approved the use of HVO fuel in its self-propelled feeder wagons. Compared to diesel, HVO has been proven to reduce CO2 emissions by up to 90 per cent, and can be used as a direct replacement.
