Australia’s heaviest and fastest growing feed mixer

FarmTech is set to debut the newly released Ausmix XL26 Fibrex 26-cube feed mixer to the industry at Henty in the 2023 Machine of the Year Award. 

Ausmix has been producing feed mixers out of Wodonga for the last three years with over 60 mixers having been supplied across Australia.

“Our chassis, bowl, augers and conveyor are designed and built inhouse with the driveline being outsourced to a reputable Italian supplier,” FarmTech northern Victoria and South Australian territory manager Liam Talbot said. 

“As we manufacture these units in Australia, we have a warehouse stocked with parts ensuring any breakdowns or issues are fixed in a prompt manner.

“The XL26 is expected to be the flagship model with full customisability to suit any farming operation.

“With a release date in mid-August, the first unit will be displayed at Henty.”

With Australian farmers aways looking for ways to increase profitability and reduce feed costs, Ausmix has developed extra wide bowls to work in concert with the Fiber-X augers to break down big bales and mix them to a final Total Mixed Ration. 

Ausmix knives are heat-treated with tungsten carbide, allowing them to be thinner, lighter and tougher than ever before. 

Ausmix tubs are designed to last in the harshest Australian conditions and are made with thick steel plates all around: 20mm on the floor and 10mm on the walls. The wall’s angled slope works to help funnel materials into the centre of the tub. 

Together with the centripetal motion from augers, materials fall deeper into the mixer, ensuring maximum blade contact, significantly reducing time, fuel and effort. 

Ausmix XL series mixers come in both a standard wide body (2.5m) and extra-wide 2.65m body. The latter option gives the larger, denser bales more space, reducing any material being thrown out. 

The mixers have a drive-train equipped with a heavy-duty gearbox with the ability to handle high torque loads, propelling the augers through big bales and mixing all fodder types with a consistent result. 

Key innovations include a front feeding conveyor belt which can either be steel slats or a rubber belt and side elevator options, all on a heavy-duty reinforced chassis.
