Shear Grabs

Shear Grabs

Shear Grabs or Silage Cutters, as they are also known, come with 2 or 3 ram cylinders and range in length from 1.3m to 2.3m. All grabs come with heat-treated shear blades, high-quality steel sides, and front plates; they come available with a choice of tines and can be connected to a front wheel loader.

By incorporating cutting-edge technology and sturdy construction, shear grabs deliver superior performance and durability. They are engineered to withstand the most challenging conditions, making them ideal for large-scale farms and smaller operations.

What does a Shear Grab do?

A shear grab is a versatile agricultural attachment designed for use with front-end loaders or telehandlers. It is commonly used on farms to handle efficiently and transport silage, hay, straw, or other loose materials. The key feature of a shear grab is its hinged, serrated cutting edge, which can slice through and grip various feed materials. This cutting action enables farmers to gather and lift silage or forage cleanly, promoting better feed quality for livestock.

How to improve your feed distribution efficiency

Shear grabs are designed to streamline the feed distribution process, improving efficiency and saving you valuable time and effort. Their strong gripping power allows for quick and easy handling of large quantities of feed. This means fewer trips back and forth to the feed storage area, reducing the time spent on feed distribution.

Furthermore, shear grabs’ innovative design enables the adequate mixing of different types of feed. Evenly distributing different feed types, they help ensure a well-balanced diet for your livestock. This eliminates manual mixing, saving you even more time and effort.

Shear grabs also promote uniform feed distribution, preventing wastage and ensuring all animals have equal access to high-quality feed. This not only improves the overall health and well-being of your livestock but also helps optimise feed usage and reduce costs.

Tips for using a shear grab effectively.

To maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of shear grabs, here are some tips to keep in mind:

1. Ensure proper maintenance: Regularly inspect and maintain your shear grab to ensure it remains in optimal working condition. This includes checking for any signs of wear and tear, lubricating moving parts, and replacing any damaged or worn components.

2. Practice proper technique: When operating a shear grab, remember that it’s essential to use the correct method to ensure efficient feed distribution. This includes positioning the shear grab at the correct angle and depth to achieve optimal gripping and cutting performance.

3. Consider feed types and conditions: Different types of feed may require different techniques or adjustments. Consider factors such as moisture content, density, and consistency of the feed to determine the most effective approach for distribution.

4. Optimise loading and unloading: When loading the shear grab with feed, ensure it is evenly distributed and adequately packed to maximise capacity. When unloading, also, try to aim for an even distribution of feed to prevent wastage and ensure uniform access for your livestock.

5. Regularly evaluate performance: Monitor your shear grab’s performance and make necessary adjustments. This includes evaluating the feed distribution pattern, checking for any signs of uneven distribution or wastage, and making necessary adjustments to optimise the process.
