Tomahawk 8555 Bale Processor – Teagle

Australian farmers often struggle with efficiently converting square and round bales of straw into fluffy absorbent bedding material.

The Tomahawk 8555 Bale Processor is a fast and efficient way to transform bales into livestock bedding.

Tomahawk 8555 Bale Processor Overview

The Tomahawk 8555 Bale Processor by Teagle is an innovative solution designed to address the needs of Australian farmers for efficiently converting square and round bales of straw into high-quality, fluffy bedding for livestock. This versatile and reliable machine is indispensable for enhancing livestock comfort and hygiene.

Design and Standard Features

Versatile Operation Modes

The Tomahawk 8555 features three unique operating modes: short chop, shred, and distribute. These options allow Australian farmers to efficiently process bales into the exact type of bedding needed for livestock, whether that’s finely chopped for absorbency or more coarsely shredded for bedding and mulch.

Prevents Over-Processing

Specifically designed to pre-process straw efficiently, this machine ensures that silage in the ration is not overworked by the diet feeder, preserving the nutritional value of feed and preventing the degradation into dust, which can be common in lesser machines.

Highly Durable Construction

Featuring wear-resistant steel in the chute and an adjustable feed slide, the Tomahawk 8555 is built to withstand the demands of daily farm use while ensuring the long-term preservation of its structural integrity and performance efficiency.

Efficient Design

The processor’s gearbox includes high and low fan speed selections, enabling farmers to adjust the output according to their specific needs. Moreover, the slip and overrun PTO feature protects the farmer’s equipment investment by preventing mechanical overload.

Advanced Control System

Equipped with a Bluetooth controller for the swivel chute, which can turn 360 degrees as well as move up and down, it offers unparalleled control and precision in spreading the processed material, significantly reducing labor and time.

Safety and Convenience Features

Including mudguards for cleaner operation in all weather conditions, a visual indicator of floor chain operation for enhanced operational awareness, and a fully hydraulic drive for the chain, ensuring consistent feed and safety during use.

Capacity and Compatibility

With a 4.5m³ capacity, capable of holding two 5-foot round bales, and requiring a minimum of 80HP to operate, this processor is compatible with a wide range of tractor sizes, making it a versatile tool for small to medium-sized farms.

At FarmTech Machinery, we know you are the kind of farmer who wants more from your bale supply. To be that way, you need a versatile bale processor to do all the processing jobs.

The problem is that some bale processors tend to overprocess and take away the nutrients and turn the foliage into dust, which is disappointing. We believe you should have a capable bale processor that does the job correctly. We understand the farmers’ need for a reliable bale processor. That’s why we offer the Tomahawk 8555 Bale Processor.

This model has a removable screen and three operating modes. Here’s how it works: with the bale processor attached to a tractor via PTO shaft, the machine’s tailgate is lowered for loading the bales. With a wide bale chamber, wide cross beater, and large diameter fan, the loading is more manageable and speeds up the process and the spreading distance. When the bales are loaded, the tailgate is up and can start the process.

So get in touch with Farmtech today, so you can stop the unnecessary waste on your bales and start utilizing them to the fullest.
