McAree Engineering Ltd add new Flip Lid Silo into V-Mac Silo Range

The latest development to the V-Mac animal feed handling range is a 4 ton hopper.

Designed to store and discharge grains, cereals and home mixed animal feed the V-Mac 4 ton hopper is ideal for any farmer who needs an efficient way to handle their feed.  Vincent McAree, Design Engineer explains “ we listened carefully to our customers over the past year and they have been asking us for a solution to store home mixed feed in particular.  We have focused on providing a quality solution which is easy to use”

4 ton hopper 11Peter Richardson, Sales & Marketing Manager adds “we took a prototype to the Ploughing Championship and it got a great reaction  - based on feedback at the show we have made a number of changes to the design which makes it even more easy to use.”

The weatherproof silo is constructed out of 3mm folded galvanised sheeting which provides increased  body strength and hot dipped galvanised legs to promote long life.  Stainless steel bolts are used throughout.

The rubber sealed lid can be easily opened using a smooth rack & pinion system which can lock the lid in a open position. The lid folds above the body of the hopper which means that it can be positioned tight against a wall or shed.

The Hopper is 3m wide so can accommodate most loader buckets.  An integrated filler pipe also allows the hopper to be filled by blowing feed in the conventional way. With 91m clearance under the discharge the hopper can emptied using barrows, bags or buckets up to 9ft wide.

It retails at €2950 plus VAT & Delivery
