Construction and Operation
Solid construction and a proven auger-fed design on the F62B forage blower provide smooth, even delivery; reduce friction; and increase power efficiency. This blower can move up to 180 tons per hour of corn silage or up to 110 tons per hour of haylage. That’s high capacity you can count on.
DEPENDABLE AUGER-FED DESIGN
A 12-inch auger is positioned at a 30-degree angle to the blower fan so crop moves quickly into the blower. The auger is positioned at the bottom of the 37-inch hopper, providing smooth delivery without bridging. An over-center clutch linkage engages and disengages the auger for less maintenance and longer life.
POWERFUL FAN MOVES A LOT OF FORAGE
A 60-inch-diameter blower fan moves crop material fast. Eight fan paddles are connected to and rotate with a back plate so crop matter doesn’t rub against the blower housing. A powerful fan paddle tip speed of 8,460 feet per minute keeps material moving at a rate of up to 180 tons per hour for corn silage.
EASY TO INSPECT AND MAINTAIN
Inspecting fan paddles is easy with the hinged blower outlet assembly, and the entire assembly is easy to remove when you need to do any paddle maintenance.
HANDY HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT AND TRANSPORT
Adjustable wheels let you easily raise and lower the F62B for transport and leveling at the silo. The height of the hopper’s rim can be adjusted from 20½ to 27½ inches from the ground to accommodate different size forage wagons.
