Straw Bedders For Sale

A straw bedder, often called a straw chopper, is a specialised piece of machinery designed to take straw bales, chop them and spread the straw across an area as bedding. They come in a vast variety of sizes and configurations and vary in price from a few hundred to several thousand pounds.

The basic configuration of a straw bedder is to have a large drum into which bales are fed. At the base of this drum is a chopping mechanism, and typically the drum will spin to feed a continuous supply of straw into the chopping mechanism. This is then blown via a hose or other outlet on to the desired bedding area. Where a hose is used, an operator simply directs the bedding on to the appropriate area. For machines with nozzle outlets, this can be changed in orientation to allow the straw to be blown in the direction and to the distance required.

The feeding of the bale into the straw bedder is a job for the telehandler or tractor. This can be a fairly intricate manoeuvre that requires an experienced operator on the loading machine. It should be emphasised that at no point should an operator put any part of his body or any implement, such as a rake, inside the drum. Instead, the bale should be dropped in cleanly. Clearly, this can be an awkward manoeuvre where the drum or hopper is relatively small in relation to the bale being inserted, so due consideration should be given to the size of the bales that are produced on the farm when sizing the appropriate hopper. Inserting a large square bale into a relatively small drum can also greatly increase the combined height of load and bale, so this is best taken into account before attempting to drive a loaded straw bedder into a low-roofed building.

That said, a properly sized straw bedder loaded and operated correctly can greatly increase the efficiency of any bedding task. The type of straw bedder varies in configuration as well as in size. Some straw bedders are simply towed by a tractor, whereas others get their power from the tractor's PTO. Clearly, both of these configurations are fairly sizeable when combined and not always suitable for indoor use in the likes of byres. Here an option can be a self-propelled straw bedder. With this unit, the operator can simply guide the straw bedder while walking behind the machine, much like a walk-behind powered lawn mower. This is a good choice for smaller needs and also where the lack of space makes a combined trailed or PTO-powered straw bedder impractical.

Using a straw bedder allows for the creation of equally sized pieces of straw, which makes it easier to handle and also makes it a better absorber of moisture, thus making for better bedding and keeping the animals dry and healthy. When selecting a straw bedder, care should be taken to ensure that the machine is a good fit for the size of bales being used and also that the machine can be used, with a tractor if need be, in the space available. Also check that roof heights are adequate for a combined bale and straw bedder.
