The augers are designed to process even the most difficult materials, as well as the toughest round bales to achieve a quick homogeneous mix.

"Its heavy duty frame, unique design and innovative advancements make for a perfect mix to suit all Australian conditions and terrain."

The new Tulip Biga vertical feed mixer wagon is built with the latest innovative mixing technology solutions, heavy duty construction and reduced power requirements.

The mixer tub is constructed with a 25mm-thick, heavy duty bottom floor plate, and 8mm-thick tub walls.

Two models are available including the Biga 20 Maxi Twin Eco+, and the Biga 24 Maxi Twin Eco+, with a mixing capacity of 20 cubic metres and 24 cubic metres respectively.

The Biga 20 comes standard with a single axle and can be optioned up to tandem-axle, while the Biga 24 comes standard with a tandem-axle.

The feed mix is discharged at the front of the mixer onto a 1,000mm-wide stainless steel conveyor that is hydraulically operated.

An optional 1,150mm foldable conveyor extension is available for both models for feeding into troughs.
