Strautmann Hopkins Ltd imports a full range of trailed or self-propelled Strautmann Mixer Wagons from the German manufacturer.

The machines are said to suit the requirements of NZ farmers – both large and small.

Because they are always striving for efficiency, NZ’s farmers know that every kilogram of dry matter of feed and its cost matters. At the same time, more farmers are also finding that Strautmann Mixer Wagons may provide the solution to maintain their efficiency and profitability.

Benefitting from almost 60 years of experience and ongoing development, the Strautmann Mixer Wagon range covers capacities 4m3 to 45m3. The company delivers strong, durable machines that provide reliable, accurate mixing and feeding delivery for all types of stock feeds, animal nutrients and additives. 

Its machines are designed for use in feed pad and herd home situations; the mixers can also deliver with some paddock feeding capability.

In action, the Strautmann patented ‘Stepped Flight Auger’ design tumbles feed as it rotates through the mixing process. This aids to provide a more homogenous mix – meaning every animal gets fed the same ration. This ultimately improves livestock’s feed conversion for milk, meat and fibre production.

For the first time this year, Strautmann Hopkins Ltd has imported two Triple Auger, Tridem Axle Mixer Wagons. A VM3451, with a 34.5 cu.m capacity. One has been delivered to a customer in Northland, while a VM4501 (45m3) is scheduled to arrive in the South Island soon. 

Get in touch with the company for a demonstration, if you think this large capacity mixer may be suitable for your requirements.
