SILOKING completes the 4.0 product line with the range of largest self-propelled
3 August 2017
The SelfLine 4.0 System 1000+ range for highest requirements is now also equipped with all 4.0 features and is produced in series already.
SILOKING presents the largest 4.0 self-propelled at AGRITECHNICA for the first time. The SelfLine 4.0 System 1000+ with 29 m³ or 32 m³ is designed for the requirements of farms with 1,000 cows and more. The machine immediately convinces through the new and powerful engine technology of Volvo, the 3 mixing augers for a quick and homogeneous mix and the highly manoeuvrable 3-axle chassis.
High power of impact
The drive unit is a Volvo 6-cylinder engine with a cylinder capacity of 7.7 litres and a power of 286 hp. Four powerful Bosch Rexroth hydrostats transfer the huge engine power specifically and efficiently to the main consumers, such as the milling head and the mixing unit.
Furthermore, there are major savings in current costs as the standard maintenance interval has been increased to 1,000 operating hours. The structure-gentle high-performance milling head makes it possible to extract large amounts of feed from a height of up to 5.5 m. The feed is transported via the wide milling head channel right into the mixing hopper. There, the three turbo augers mix the feed quickly and regularly to produce a homogeneous mixed ration. The highly efficient discharge technology provides for feed discharge in the barn within 90 seconds.
“Lots of large farms feed 100 tons and more per day on 365 days a year. Therefore we have focused our development on high operational reliability. The components mounted are designed for extreme demands and long life“, sales manager Sascha Behrend declared.
Speed and flexibility
The XXL self-propelled is equipped with a 3-axle chassis with air suspension as standard. The 3 axles reduce the load on the chassis, the tyres and the driveways and thanks to the active steering of the front and rear axles, they offer a minimum turning radius of 8.1 m.
The 40-km/h version is standard and allows for quick road travel between the farms – even when loaded completely.
Easy work by pressing a key
Instead of numerous commands the Feed Table Management just requires the press of a key on the multifunctional armrest to execute several hydraulic functions automatically, such as the functions “retract discharge conveyor chain“, “switch on discharge conveyor chain“ and “open discharge door”.
