Pladdet launches a new attachment for shovels, telehandlers and front loaders: the silage cutter. It is extremely robust and durable. The scraper is equipped with solid tubes to limit rotation and the pins are induction hardened. The cylinders on both sides ensure that the bucket keeps on cutting evenly. The entire side shield and interchangeable blades on the side and front are made of Hardox® high strength steel. The cast iron corners are also easily replaceable.
The Hardox® knives are milled so sharply that they cut effortlessly into the feed. The large bite height and small bite depth ensure that the wall of the silage is changed more frequently and that the feed is less subject to heating. Another advantage is that the silage cutter does not have to be pushed very far into the forage.
Tight cutting pattern
The silage cutter is designed with quality and durability in mind and was nicknamed “Pacman” by the designers because of its tight cutting pattern. The Hardox® front knives of the scraper are interchangeable and the customer can choose between a closed bottom or a bottom with teeth. The advantage of the closed trough is that less feed is lost and the finer by-products can also be scooped up. With a tine bottom, it is easier to push the rake into the silage.
Easy and gradual unloading
Due to the short bottom knife, the silage rake unloads easily and it is not necessary to tip over far in order to empty the silage rake. In addition, it unloads gradually, which doses the load in the mixing wagon well. Because the cylinders are incorporated in the bucket, it is possible to tap into the silo wall, which reduces the amount of roughage.
