Poultry Feed Cutter

This unit is similar to a small chaff cutter cutting heads are available, a cylinder type and a flywheel type.

A power-operated silage cutter performs three functions—feeding the material into the blades, cutting, and elevating material into a storage bin.

The capacity of a silage cutter depends on the width and height of the throat, length of cut, number of knives, and speed of operation.
