Equipment Profile: Forage Wagons
HD Forage Boxes are available in 16’ and 18’ lengths with a chain, or twin auger cross-conveyor unload system. XTRACAP Forage Boxes are available in 17’, 19’, and 21’ lengths with a chain, or twin auger cross-conveyor unload system.
Both models are available in Front Unload or Front and Rear Unload. H&S uses three – 18” 4 bar H.D. spiral type beaters – not augers. Aggressive in handling tough material, they are even feeding. All three beaters are mounted in the head, not auxiliary panels in the box. Beater shafts are 1 1/4” equipped with greaseable bearings. H&S utilizes a deep stagger beater design. The beaters turn progressively faster from top to bottom. The slow turning top beater does not pitch chunks forward, it undercuts the heap and feeds tough material down where the bottom beaters go to work delivering a smooth even flow to the cross conveyor. The cross conveyor is 22” wide, is equipped with 550 roller chain, and extends 12” beyond the side of the head. A simple trouble-free variable speed drive lets you match just the right unload speed to the crop type, load condition and blower capacity. A bronze worm gear is standard. The main apron drive shaft is 1 3/4”. #80 drive chain drives the main apron drive shaft. A separate dual belt drive clutch allows you to start and clear the beaters before you start the main apron conveyors. The clutch system can be used to engage just the cross conveyor, the cross conveyor and beaters, or the cross conveyor, beaters and main floor apron in any speed. The emergency stop mechanism is built into the drive unit and can be activated from the front, sides or rear of the box.
