One of the most common questions asked in the field is 'what is the difference between a vertical processor and a horizontal mixer?'
One is a feed mixer, while the other is a feed processor.
Horizontal mixers require pre-processed commodities, and then proceed to blend a Total Mixed Ration.
Vertical processors are capable of processing commodities such as whole forage or silage bales to the desired length of the producer.
"By keeping the design simple and robust, a Supreme Vertical Processor ensures the end user will experience far less down time and maintenance requirements," a Forbes Machinery Centre spokesman said.
"The Supreme vertical processor is designed to have fewer wear points and a simplicity that gives hassle free maintenance.
"While other vertical and horizontal mixers may find ways to cut corners or reduce cost, Supreme focuses on quality and craftsmanship.
"The tub is designed with sloped walls so feed will slide easily from the top to the floor.
"Because of the slope there is enough space between the edge of the auger flighting and the tub wall which creates a fast moving volcanic action.
"Supreme's mixing tubs have been carefully designed for easier loading, better mixing and longer life.
"The unobstructed opening facilitates loading of whole bales, regardless of type or size."
