On-farm feed preservation and grain-processing specialist, Kelvin Cave Ltd, has launched a new trailed version of the smaller of its two British-built grain rollers. The KC Bruiser 600, which will be on display for the first time at the Yorkshire Agricultural Machinery Show (YAMS) on Wednesday 4 February, adds a new level of flexibility to this popular range.

The KC Bruiser 600 will deliver a throughput of traditional, flat-rolled grain for home-grown cereal blends and crimping, at a rate of 7-20 tonnes per hour, depending on grain type and quality. Because of its smaller size, this model is suited to processing grain in more confined situations than the larger and higher capacity model in the range – the KC Bruiser 1250. This makes the Bruiser 600 particularly suited to contractors who wish to take equipment into tight spaces on smaller farms.

Bruiser 600However, despite its size and agility, the KC Bruiser 600 features the same heavy-duty 600mm diameter flat rollers as its bigger brother; is fully adjustable to produce exactly the quality of roll required for any situation; and will process any type of grain.

Suitable for crimping grain for ensiling at 30-45% moisture as well as rolling drier grain for aerobic storage, the KC Bruiser range features magnetic protection to remove ferrous metal debris and tough marine-quality paint for long-life protection. It can also be equipped for grain preservative application.

Both models can be fitted with the unique Kelvin Cave Ltd on-board digital weighing system, making them ideal for contractors who have to deal with unknown quantities of grain at different locations. These weighing systems ensure greater application accuracy when preservatives are being added and a reliable measurement of crop yield.

Supplied mounted on a robust trailer-chassis as standard, bespoke options to suit specific requirements are available to special order.
