How to optimize my mixer?

Indeed, your trailer must be in perfect alignment with your tractor. The weighing system is essential to control your rations, which is why it is important to regularly check that it is working properly. Knives are parts that wear out quickly, so their condition should be checked carefully once a month. The more the knives are worn, the more the life of your blades will be penalized. Be sure to choose the size of your knives, short or long depending on the type of forage. It is interesting to note that long knives affect the power of your mixer by requiring 3 to 5 more horsepower. Counter knives can also be useful especially for hay and straw. Place your forage in the center of the mixer for an even more even distribution. You can limit the loss of fodder during transfer into the silo by placing your mixer as close as possible to it. Finally, do not fill your mixer to the brim, you can leave at least ten centimeters.
How do I properly maintain my mixer?
Like all agricultural machinery, a mixer requires regular maintenance. Tire pressure, lubricating the gimbals and checking the wear of parts are therefore very important. It is recommended to check the condition of the carpet and clean it if necessary. You can check the condition of the dispensing unit. In conclusion, a good use and especially a good maintenance of your mixer will greatly influence the quality of your mixtures produced.
