1. THE

EASI-FEEDER

PRINCIPLE

The Easi-feeder’s main operating functions

are weighing, mixing and feeding out.

WEIGHING

The Easi-feeder’s electronic weighing system allows exactly the required amounts of individual materials to be loaded into the mixing chamber to provide accurate rationing.

The system is based on robust load cells mounted between chassis and mixing chamber which send electronic signals to the control box mounted on the front of the feeder. These signals are converted into units of weight which are then displayed on an easily-read digital display.

Individual loads can be weighed or successive loads can be accumulated to give total weight of feed in the feeder.

MIXING

Mixing is carried out by a centrally-mounted paddle revolving at just 10rpm.

THE

EASI-FEEDER

PRINCIPLE

Discharge auger

The paddle imparts a shearing action on the feed ingredients and produces a consistent and thorough mix with all types of material including coarse, wet silage and liquids.

When mixing, a simple guillotine door separates the mixing chamber from the unloading auger.

PRINCIPLE

FEEDING OUT

When mixing is complete the PTO is disengaged and the guillotine door between the mixing chamber and the discharge auger is lifted. The auger rotates in the same direction as the paddles and runs the entire length of the mixing chamber.

When the door is lifted, the PTO is engaged and material is pushed onto the auger and discharged at the front of the machine. Feedout is even, rapid and in full view of the operator.

2. SAFETY

The Easi-feeder has many safety features built into its design but its ultimate safe operation is down to the individual and his understanding of potential safety problems.

The Easi-feeder is designed to be used as a mixer wagon for mixing animal feeds. It should not be used for any other purpose which will affect its performance or safety.

The following points are guidelines only, please be vigilant at all times.

1. Use only a PTO shaft with a properly fitted safety guard and shear bolt.

2. Do not permit any passengers on the feeder.

3. Always connect the PTO shaft with the shear bolt end to the tractor.

4. Always make sure that all covers/guards are fitted and locked closed with the keys provided.

5. Ensure all trailing leads, hoses etc are well clear of the PTO.

6. Ensure the feeder and the immediate area surrounding it are clear of people, especially children, before commencing operation.

7. Never remove chain guards or get into the feeder when it is connected to a tractor.

8. Regularly inspect all chains, sprockets and moving parts for wear and check all nuts and bolts for tightness.

9. Load only from the side indicated.

10. Do not exceed 15km/hr (10mph) when travelling.

11. Exercise extreme caution when turning right.

12. Always park the feeder on level ground and apply hand brake when not in use.

13. The ladder on the rear of the feeder is only to be used as a viewing point for the mixing chamber. It should

not

be used as a means of access to the mixing chamber.

SAFETY

SODA GRAIN WARNING!

Before treating grain with Caustic Soda, read carefully the instructions provided by KEENAN paying particular attention to the Safety

Warnings.

When finished treating grain, clean out any treated grain remaining in the Mixing and/or

Auger chambers. Remember that this grain should not be fed to animals for at least 4 days after treating.

Caution is the key word at all times.

3. HOW

TO USE

THE

WEIGHING

SYSTEM

The weighing system has been designed to be simple to operate, accurate and robust.

The weighing system is made up of four load cells and an indicator unit at the front of the machine. Each of the load cells is connected to the indicator unit.

Note: The 20 cubic weighing system has

Weightonix load cells and indicator. Refer to seperate manual for the EF200. The system described below refers to the J-star indicator which is common to all models except the

EF200.

J-STAR

BOX

BLOW UP

Indicator

Load cells

Load cell Load cell

The system uses 12 volt DC power from the tractor which is connected to the indicator unit.

The indicator unit therefore has two leads entering it, one from the load cells and one from the tractor.

The indicator unit is mounted on a swinging arm to allow it to be placed in the best position possible for ease of operation and visibility.

Weights of loads are displayed in kilograms with increments of 5kg being used. The unit is capable of measuring up to 20 tonnes.

The system is maintenance free being fully electronic with no moving parts. All components are sealed against moisture and dust and are resistant to frost and corrosion.

HOW

TO USE

THE

WEIGHING

SYSTEM

Once the preset has been entered, the display can show the weight data in three (3) different

”display modes“.

The three display modes are:

”GROSS MODE“ The gross weight is displayed by pressing the [NET/GROSS] key. As ingredients are loaded, the weight display will count upward toward the preset value. As ingredients are unloaded the weight display will count down to the preset value.

”LOAD/UNLOAD MODE“ Press the

[LOAD/UNLOAD] key to display the amount remaining to be loaded or unloaded. As ingredients are loaded OR unloaded, the display will count down from the entered preset weight until it reaches zero.

”NET MODE“ The weight added since the preset has been entered is displayed by pressing the

[NET/GROSS] key two (2) times if in the PRESET

LOAD/UNLOAD MODE, one (1) time if in the

PRESET GROSS MODE. As ingredients are loaded, the weight display will count upward, as they are unloaded the weight display will count down.

Switching between these display modes is possible at any time by simply pushing the appropriate keys.

Before the preset weight is reached, the prealarm is activated. This causes the preset display annunciator, the front panel alarm light, the output relay, and the alarm horn all to pulse in sequence with the alarm light.

Set the pre-alarm value to”0“ to prevent the alarm output from pulsing.

When the preset weight is reached, the front panel alarm light, the output relay, the

’PRESET‘ annunciator, and the alarm horn will all be held ON.

TROUBLESHOOTING

If you experience problems in the operation of the Weighing System, read through this

Troubleshooting section first before contacting

KEENAN SERVICE.

Reading Drifting

If the reading on the Indicator is drifting or does not stay steady, the most likely cause of the problem is dampness/moisture in or around the Indicator or cables. Please follow these steps to locate and correct the problem.

1.

Disconnect the Display Cable (Junction Box to Indicator). Check both the plug on the cable and the connector on the Indicator for dampness and/or corrosion of the terminals.

If any dampness is found dry it off thoroughly with a hair drier. If corrosion is found on the terminals then clean thoroughly. Reconnect cable and test.

2. Remove the cover from the Junction Box and check for any loose wiring or dampness.

Again dry off any dampness and rectify any loose or bad wiring.

3. Check Weighcell plugs for dampness and also check Weighcell cables for any breaks and/or dampness.

If the above measures do not rectify the problem then contact KEENAN SERVICE for further assistance.

HOW

TO USE

THE

WEIGHING

SYSTEM

System Weighing Innacurately

If you suspect that the system is weighing inaccurately, check all four weighcells to make sure that they are mounted correctly. If the bolt through the weighcell has come loose or broken, the weighcell can turn upside-down resulting in that weighcell giving an inaccurate reading. (As you face the back of the machine the cable should be to the Right Hand Side of each of the rear Weighcells. As you face the front of the machine the cable should be to the

Right Hand Side of each of the front

Weighcells.) If a Weighcell is turned upsidedown, remove the bolt (

3

/

8

" x 3

1

/

2

") and turn the Weighcell.

To check that the system is weighing correctly, get some known weight (e.g. A bag of fertiliser) and place it on each corner of the machine in turn. You should get the same reading for each corner. If one corner returns a significantly different reading from the other three then this points to a faulty weighcell on that corner.

Indicator will not Switch ON

If the Indicator will not switch ON the most likely cause of the problem is a faulty Power

Cable or bad connection at the Power point on the tractor. Check the Power cable thoroughly for breaks and also make 100% sure that you are getting Power from the tractor. Note that the Indicator is Fused Internally and that the

Fuse located on the bottom panel of the

Indicator is for an External Alarm. If these checks do not solve the problem, contact

KEENAN SERVICE.

4. OPERATING

THE

EASI-FEEDER

The Easi-feeder is designed for ease-of-use and low power requirement. For maximum performance it is recommended that the feeder be used with a tractor in the 75-80hp range.

Until the full capabilties of the Easi-feeder are understood by new operators, it is recommended that smaller quantities are used and that

overloading is avoided.

HITCHING UP

1. After ensuring the Easi-feeder is parked on level ground hitch-up the feeder to the tractor towbar.

2. The PTO shaft should be attached with its shear bolt end coupled to the tractor’s output not to the feeder’s drive box. Make sure that the PTO guard is in good condition and well secured.

3. Connect the hydraulic line from the guillotine door mechanism to a double-

acting spool valve and the line from the brakes to a single acting valve.

4. Ensure the power lead from the weighing system is connected to the tractor battery via a direct fused line (see section 3).

LOADING/MIXING

1. If the feeder has been transported to a new area, again check it is on level ground. This will ensure all feedstuffs are distributed evenly for accurate weighing and thorough mixing.

2. Make sure the guillotine door is closed and that hydraulic pressure is applied. With tractor engine speed at approx 1500rpm, engage the PTO. As a general rule engine speed during loading should be as low as possible without the risk of stalling.

OPERATING

THE

EASI-FEEDER

3. Loading of the feeder can now start.

Loading should be carried out only from the side indicated to avoid the risk of catching loading shovels/silage grabs in the revolving paddles.

4. Use the weigher system to ensure the right amounts of ingredients are being added in line with the desired rations (see section 3).

5. Where liquids are being used, these should be loaded first followed by other concentrates and then other ingredients which form smaller fractions of the total mix.

6. Last of all add the feed ingredient which forms the largest part of the ration. This allows lesser constituents to be thoroughly mixed together before the addition of the main bulk of the ration and ensures they are evenly spread throughout the mix.

7. Allow the mixture to circulate in the feeder until all loading is complete.

Disengage the PTO and transport the feeder to unloading point.

Note: As a rule mixing is complete as soon as the last ingredient is loaded.

When mixing cereal pre-mixes and meal-only diets, set the engine speed to about 1800-

2000rpm and do not mix more than 2.5 tonnes at any one time. For best results, leave the feeder running for three to four minutes after the last ingredient has been added to ensure a thorough mix.

When using straw in the ration, it is advisable to leave the feeder mixing for a further 2-3 minutes after loading is complete.

23

24

OPERATING

THE

EASI-FEEDER

UNLOADING

1. Position the feeder discharge chute over the start of the feeding trough and open the guillotine door to its full height.

2. Engage the PTO and set the engine speed to 1800-2000rpm. Select and engage a low ratio forward gear and the feed-mixture will be discharged.

3. Discharge time depends on materials used and the total load, but moderate loads of silage-based rations will take in the region of two minutes to fully unload.

4. If a run of trough space is finished before the feeder is fully unloaded, disengage the

PTO and turn around before going back down the passage or moving to a new trough. Engaging the PTO will commence the feed-out procedure once more.

Warning -

If you need to lower the guillotine door because of height restrictions when manoeuvering, allow the door to descend slowly under its own weight rather than forcing it down with hydraulics. Disengage the tractor hydraulics and operate the lever. Before engaging the PTO again ensure hydraulics are reconnected and guillotine door is fully open.

Remember . . .

Always use the lowest gear possible as this will ensure maximum power is delivered to the unloading mechanism.

The guillotine door should never be used as a

metering device. In operation it should be used only in one of two positions - fully opened

(unloading) or fully closed (mixing).

Warning - Always disengage the PTO before attempting to turn any corner once the Easifeeder is hitched up.
