Tube Style Auger Feeder

A tube style auger feeder provides better material flow in order for more efficient feeding for grain processing. Our 8215 boasts an extended auger feeder to better reach in your yard, while resisting back flow of material.

  • 10 inch diameter
  • 118 inches long
Transition Auger
  • This transition auger allows for a more consistent material flow from the mixing tank to the discharge auger as a result of double flighting.
  • The flight extensions offer more movement in the transition auger for foliage such as hay. Therefore, not recommended for grain only mixing.
Discharge Auger

Operate the discharge auger with the wireless remote control due to the hybrid hydraulic system (tractor supplied and self-contained combined) for swinging the auger, up/down movement, and transition gate open/close movement.

  • Auger Tube has a 10 inch diameter
  • Horizontal operating arc is 225º
  • Vertical operating arc range from +46º to -27º or +60º to -11º
  • 10 feet long discharge auger
  • There are additional options for Auger Extensions
Hydraulic System

With the extended hydraulic system on the 8215 Grinder Mixer, both the mill to mixer and supplement hopper to mixer augers are operated via hydraulic motors. In contrast to previous models, these augers feed in individually further up the tank for more immediate mixing results. Both the auger feeder and discharge auger operate hydraulically. With the self-contained system, you are also able to operate the discharge auger from a wireless remote control! Simply push the button to raise, lower, swing, and engage the discharge.

Tired of waiting for the hydraulic oil to warm up in the winter or overheating in the summer? A smaller hydraulic tank provides less oil so you are in full operation quicker in the cold climate. More importantly, watch as the hydraulic cooler automatically turns on when your oil temperature rises and likewise, reverses when necessary. To clarify, the cooler remains off when not needed.

  • Hydraulic Mill to Mixer and Hopper to Mixer Augers
  • Wireless Remote Control Discharge Operation
  • Hydraulic Oil Cooler
