Feeding with the slot silo cover system
The excavation of the silage is easy and fast. You do not have to remove straps and gravel hoses first and expose the hump. Simply place the covering machine on the selected slot silo, at the start of feeding. The next time you start feeding, all you have to do is connect the covering machine to your tractor with front loader, shovel or telescopic handler. The machine rolls up the desired number of metres of the cover, you decide how much roughage will be released. Then you disconnect the machine. This takes only a few minutes. The covering machine remains on the slot silo as long as you are feeding from the silo.
The cover system is particularly easy with severe weather conditions such as snow or wind. With the cover system you can easily roll up the cover despite the snow, as was also the case in the winter of 2009/2010. This way you are always sure that you can feed.
Because the machine with the roller and the cover remain above the roughage, you work as it were behind a “screen”. As a result, your exposed roughage remains considerably drier, which offers you advantages when feeding by weight.
An overflow system at height ensures in all cases a good and even filling of the hoses. As a result, the water hoses always remain well filled with the correct amount of (salt) water.
