You have been looking for a durable, simple operating
bunk feeder, you just found it with the Zabel Equipment
Model ZCF1600 16” Belt Feeder. Heavy steel construction
dipped in enamel paint, and greasable bearings will
give you years of reliable service.
most installations a single motor drives both
the conveying belt and plow(s), distributing feed
evenly throughout the length of the bunk. Power
from the motor is distributed to the plow using
a right angle worm-gear reducer, and A2050 roller
chain in a continuous loop.
with a #40 roller chain from the jack shaft, positive
plow movement is achieved, unlike a twisted “V”
belt and cable system. Plow options are; standard
one-way; two-way, with 3 optional trips; and by-pass,
with 2 optional trips. Other options include;
heavy-duty drive for longer lengths, reverse kit,
center fill kit (for dropping feed on to the conveying
belt anywhere between drive and idle unit, or
for multiple plows in a multi-lot feed bunk),
wind boards, covers, independent plow drive, longer
length hoppers, and leg stands.
