The new GX1117 grinder/mixer from Frontier will handle 135-bushels of ingredients handily and does so without belts, pulleys or chains.
The self-contained hydraulic system eliminates many of the mechanical wear points to help lower maintenance and ownership costs.
The GX1117 features a large 14-inch mixing auger and can be equipped with two optional weigh scales for precise batch making. The GX1117 also has a large unloading auger that swings up to 300 degrees and is controlled from the tractor seat for easy feed dispersal.
The GX1117 also comes with a 21-inch wide power takeoff driven hammer mill and an eight-section banded V-belt for a positive drive. A quick-release pin allows the operator to disengage the mill when its not in use. Also, there are 18-inch heavy duty magnets installed to help trap metal before it enters the mill.
Another option available is a swinging 12-inch intake auger that is seven feet long and can be operated from zero to 175 rpm and will easily handle corn, shelled corn and other grains.
