The Forage Pro

Forage Blowers 1460 & 1460 H.O.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR BLOWER ACCORDING TO YOUR NEEDS

Optional 1000 RPM drive. Reduces the speed from 1000 to 650 RPM.

The shearbolt is easily accessible thanks to the hinged safety guard with incorporated spare shearbolts support.

 

The hopper of the Dion 1460 Forage Blower offers many unique features.

The larger 14" ou 16" dia. auger ensures a positive and even feed to the fan.

  The auger is driven by 2 sets of double 5VX V-belts on cast iron pulleys.

All drive mechanisms can be easily reached thanks to hinged protection doors. The feed auger has a 2" dia. Drive shaft mounted on 2 cast iron ball bearings.

Forage Harvesters

How would you design the perfect pull-type Forage Harvester?

You would start with a "straight through" design like a self-propelled Forage Harvester.

"A Forage Harvester with shearing and unidirectional blower can save energy up to 10% more compare to a Forage Harvester which modifies the particles direction and loses on the process an important part of its cynetic energy."
