Built to withstand New Zealand’s extreme climate and terrain with heavy duty, robust, design and construction



The Scannell USF20.5m³ Universal Feeder is the machine for you if you want a large capacity low maintenance machine that is built with New Zealand conditions in mind. Featuring a super strong RHS one piece chassis and massive 50 x 50mm feed battens, running on 20,000lbs feed chains. Axles are 70mm square and carry 3,000kg each and come with hub shields to protect from hay & twine, the axle pivot is offset allowing the front tyres to carry less weight for better performance on soft ground.

Maintenance of the machine is easy with only eight grease nipples on the entire machine better still they only need to be greased once a month. But it doesn’t stop there: the bottom roller on the side elevator is a piece of round pipe that the roller chain simply rides over. With just a top sprocket that goes in between the rollers the top drive giving the chain its self cleaning properties. The cross feed floor is driven by a maintenance free hydraulic reduction box, and the rear tail door pusher is controlled by one large hydraulic cylinder (no chains to break or adjust). Just some of the features that make the Scannell 20.5m³ Universal Feeder the strongest and most robust machine that you will find.
