Beater Wagons

Beater Wagon McIntosh Farm Machinery

Designed to provide a more consistent and even mix, the McIntosh Beater wagon is an addition to the conventional chain elevator system. The unique design with three PTO-driven horizontal beaters allows for better incorporation and more consistent blending of different products. Bales are broken up so that cows do not have to lift their heads to drag the feed apart, resulting in less wastage. McIntosh Beater Wagons can handle round and square bales quickly and efficiently, operating in both field and feed pad conditions.
