Hustler Equipment unveils latest Combi multi-feeder

Hustler Equipment has unveiled the second iteration of its Combi RX multi-feeder range – the Combi RX2 (series two)

Building on the success of the Combi RX multi-feeders, Hustler Equipment’s Combi RX2 has a range of key enhancements.

Hustler says it has incorporated user feedback from its Combi RX multi-feeders, launched in 2019, in the new design.

“We’re rapt to be able to build on this benchmark with the release of Combi RX2, bringing a further leap in reliability, even lower maintenance and we’ve also made it more user-friendly in the process,” Hustler Equipment CEO Brent Currie says.

The model has a wider cross-floor, which Hustler says mitigates potential crushing and jamming and reduces operator errors – making it ideal for beginners.

Hustler Equipment says manoeuvrability has been improved, with the angled front chassis rails allowing for tighter turns without tyre-to-chassis contact.

A new plastic bonnet and redesigned antenna have been included to enhance visual appeal and protect the FeedLink scale and feed management system.

An optional trough feeding kit is also available for factory fitment, Hustler saying it features unique feed bars and a curved elevator for precise feed drop placement, making it ideal for trough feeding, feed pad or over-fence scenarios.

Hustler Equipment has made several changes to enhance reliability, including:

– A revamped elevator motor retaining system for foolproof operation.

– Larger pushing rams for heavier loads.

– Improved spring and sub-frame design on the RX218 for less greasing and wear.

– Collaboration with Ascenso on larger diameter, 20-ply tyres for increased load rating and durability.

– Optimised hose routing for reduced chafing and improved flow.

– Enhanced tensioner block adjustments, a sturdier gearbox mount and improved critical bearing protection for overall machine robustness.

– New chain guides on the cross floor for improved tracking and reduced derailing risk.

– Redesigned pusher blade for simplicity, weight reduction and strength.

“Whilst many of the improvements appear subtle, they all add up to another significant step forward from its predecessor, an answer to the demands of the market,” Currie says.
