Bernard van Lengerich Maschinenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG (BvL) has introduced a new Vario Volume extension system as an option for almost all its range of trailed mixer wagons. The Vario Volume attachment is hydraulically raised to increase the container volume by approx. 30 cm. This effectively increases the volume in a twin auger mixer by up to 3.5 m³.
When the feed is mixed and chopped, the Vario Volume extension can then be lowered again in order to be able to drive into low or restricted height sheds if necessary. For components that require a lot of space when mixing, such as straw bales, etc., the Vario Volume is a useful aid as it simply and effectively prevents feed components from spilling over the container edge.
The new BvL Vario Volume extension can also be fitted to feed mixers with a rear-mounted 2.0 straw blower. The straw blower is mechanically driven and has a high throughput of about 300 kg of straw per minute, which can be thrown up to 30 m. The stone trap and the softstart aid, round off the straw blower product range.
