The VSL 142 is one of two new single-auger vertical mixer models designed for dairy and beef producers. This model has a low profile to allow for easy loading and the right capacity to easily serve small to medium-sized operations. This Vertical Maxx mixer can effectively handle the broadest range of feedstuffs, including large round bales, and can process a ration that contains up to 100% hay to get more roughage in the ration. Design improvements to the body and mixing auger have enhanced mixing performance and discharge consistency. The hydraulic side-shift discharge conveyor and optional inclining extension provide superior unloading versatility.
