Bed and Feed baled or loose material - wet or dry.

Tried and Tested - The Farmers Choice for quality and reliability.

Tomahawk 4040-5050-5050XL Bale Feeder

Drum Tomahawk

Comfortable livestock are more productive.

Provide an even and absorbent bed of straw.

Increase consumption and reduce waste of baled silage.

Baled silage that is lightly shredded with a Tomahawk is more palatable and easily consumed.

Operation

Blow straw up to 35', discharge to one or both sides of the tractor. Alternative delivery chutes are available to suit your requirements.

Discharge silage to the right hand side only into a ring feeder or along a feed barrier.

The Tomahawk 4040, 5050 and 5050XLM Bale Feeder models use Blades to chop dry or wet material. With very wet material the chop length may be as low as 4 cm, and dry material will be around 15cm. long.

Easy control of output by adjusting the speed of drum rotation.

Configurations

  • Tomahawk 4040 - Suitable for 1.2m (4') diameter bales.
  • Tomahawk 5050 - Suitable for 1.5m (5') diameter bales.
  • Tomahawk 5050XL - Suitable for 1.5m (5') diameter bales and full size Hesston bales.

Various drum extensions are available for ease of operation or to accommodate larger rectangular bales.

British built and backed

For your peace of mind Tomahawks are backed by an efficient after sales service from our production facility in Cornwall, England.

The Tomahawk Drum models are economical, simple and robust. There are no gearboxes, with the drive to the rotor being direct from the tractor, a hydraulic motor is used to rotate the drum. Due to their simplicity and strength, customers can expect a long service life from their Tomahawk.

Bedding

Save straw - users report typical savings of 30% compared to manual bedding down.

Cleaner livestock - healthier animals and fewer disease problems.

Save labour - one person bedding operation.

Specify the right machine for the job - short chop for poultry & cubicles, light shredding for loose housing.

Feeding

Will chop and feed bales of silage, alongside barriers or into Ring Feeders, allowing greater intake of silage with less wastage.

Drum Tomahawks

Simple - drum turns clockwise, rotor turns anti-clockwise, and material is skimmed of the end of the bale.

No gearbox - direct drive from PTO. Hydraulic drive to drum.

Feed rate is controlled by the angle of the drum.

"Special Applications require Special Solutions for Organic Pig Farmer"

Tomahawk Drum Machine

The Stenager Økogris farm is located in the south west region of Denmark, close to Esbjerg. The farm’s principle activity is managing a herd of around 600 sows, finishing over 12,000 pigs a year. The pigs are living on 40 Ha land. To support this over 175 hectares of cereals are grown on the farm.

A key feature of the farm is it’s organic status which sees all pigs kept outside from farrowing to finishing.

To ensure that the pigs are comfortable, and consequently perform as well as possible, the use of straw bedding is critical. 

In 2007 the farm invested in a second hand Teagle Tomahawk 5080 from 1996, with capacity for two round bales or one Hesston bale. This machine ran on the farm for around 8 years before Ribers, the local Teagle distributor in Denmark were approached by Nicolaj Pedersen to develop a machine with capacity for more bales; the aim being to reduce the amount of time spent reloading the machine in the field.

The result was a bespoke design manufactured by Ribers, incorporating a Teagle Tomahawk 5050 straw bedder. The machine now has a conveyor feed table with capacity for up to 3 full size Hesston bales.

The operator Henrik says, "it is a fantastic machine, absolutely fantastic. We have substantially reduced the time to bed down the pigs. In addition, the savings in time and improvement in the beds for the pigs enabled us to apply for a European grant under a scheme for 'technological solutions for labour reduction'"

Henrik adds – “there is a strategy to laying the bed to get the most out of the straw and provide comfort. We have both rye and barley straw available to us and find that the rye straw does not absorb moisture so quickly. We ensure that the bed does not get wet from beneath during winter by first laying a mat of rye straw, which we then top with a comfortable layer of barley straw.”

Nicolaj wanted to be able to save as much time as possible, so all hydraulic functions are controlled from the tractor cab, such as: Drum rotation direction and speed, chute direction and choice of chute, conveyor belt speed and direction.

The Tomahawk 5050 is fitted with a swivel giraffe chute and a special hydr. operated low level pig chute. The Rimach FT500 is supplied with big flotation tyres to be able to go in the field in all conditions.
