2574 Balebuster Options
Tires
  (Set of 2) 31x10.5x15 - load rating "C" Highway Rated Tires
  (Set of 2) 12.5L x 15 8 ply Implement tires
   
Standard or Constant Velocity PTO
   
Discharge Spouts - 360°
  Select from the following:
  3 ft Curved Spout Kit (open curve) - for most applications such as feeding, bedding and erosion control .
  Enclosed curved spout with flanged end- facilitates farther application of mulch/bedding than the open curved spout- almost as far as straw cannon- and can be rotated 360 degrees.
  Straw Cannon Kit - for bedding and erosion control - shoots straw up to 100 feet.
  Mini-gun Spout - The mini gun gives the operator an adjustable deflector to put on the enclosed curve spout. Thus giving more control of the product stream.
  Additional Spout options:
10” x 25’ and 10” x 50’ hose kits- for placing mulch and bedding more precisely. Great for poultry barns, smaller areas that need to be mulched. Note: there is an adaptor in the hose kit that replaces the spout on the transition.
  Without a Spout - Using just the transition without any spout is useful in areas where distance (0 to 40 ft (12.2m)) is not an issue.
   
Axle Extensions
  12" bolt on axle extensions - provide improved stability on slopes
   
2nd Axle with Spindles, Hubs, Bolts and Highway Tires with Rims.
  By adding an axle, you minimize the tongue weight and keep your compaction to a minimum. Available with highway tires only.
   
Recutter Screen Sizes
 

Use recutter screens to adjust the length of cut to meet the needs of your application. Screens are available in 2” round, 3” round, 4” round, 4-¼ in x 9-½ in Slotted, and 6-¼ in x 9-½ in Slotted.
