The 53-cm (21-in.) hammer mill has 66 thin, four-way reversible steel-alloy hammers that slice the material.
As slicing occurs, a suction fan draws ground feed through the 600-cu in. screen area and allows a uniform mix. This mill and hammer design also reduces horsepower requirements.
The 35.6-cm (14-in.) vertical mixing auger with a 76.2-cm (30-in.) base is designed to thoroughly mix the ground feed and supplements.
Mixing is accurate and consistent load after load.
The self-contained hydraulic system drives all of the feeding attachments and unloading mechanisms. The hydraulic system is supplied by a hydraulic motor with 39.75-L/min (10.5-gpm) flow. A cyclonic reservoir provides circulation to cool the hydraulic oil.
The 3.7-m (12-ft) hydraulically controlled unloading auger is standard equipment. It has a reach height of 19 ft at 53 degrees, can rotate 300 degrees, and is controlled from the tractor's operator station.
An adjustable slip clutch for the unloading auger rotation provides protection against impact with a building or bin.
A manually operated, slide-style door opens easily for unloading.
Twelve hammer mill screens are available as attachments for the grinder mixer. Sizes range from 3.175 mm to 50.8 mm (0.125 in. to 2 in.).
Screens are stored on the left side of the machine.
Big capacity means fewer loads to be ground, mixed, and delivered to feeders and bins.
Unloading auger extensions are available in 0.9-m and 1.8-m (3-ft and 6-ft) lengths and are folded manually.
The GX1117 is available with a 540-rpm power take-off (PTO) or 1000-rpm PTO. The hammer mill is powered with an eight A-section-banded V-belt for a positive drive.
The drive also features a quick-release pin to disengage the hammer mill.
A gravity feed hopper with two heavy-duty 102-mm x 457-mm (4-in. x 18-in.) magnets catches metal debris.
The supplement hopper is located on the left side of the grinder mixer. It is 58.4 cm wide and 45.7 cm long (23 in. wide and 18 in. long) and equipped with a sack cutter. The mouth opening is 88.9 cm (35 in.) above the ground.
