WHAT IS THE SERIES 500 FEED ADMIRAL?
With the introduction of open water circular pens the Series 500 Feed Admiral is suitable for boat positioning and open water feeding regimes. The Series 500 Feed Commander is an air driven feed broadcaster designed for single operator control of feed volume and broadcast coverage using the same controls found on all "Aero-Spreader" Series of feed brodcasters. Along with the standard manual hopper controls for feed broadcast volume and for blower speed the operator has the opportunity to select one of two hoppers. This split hopper approach is suitable for holding up to five (5) metric tonnes of feed of a single feed size or 2.5 metric tonnes of each of two feed sizes. A large pair of all weather fold away hopper lids insures the Series 500 Feed Admiral is able to take advantage of quick bulk bag loading techniques.
HOW DOES THE FEED ADMIRAL WORK?
The Series 500 Feed Admiral operates using a choice of three high efficiency blower units. A direct drive 9 hp Honda gas driven 15" blower complete with low oil alert, a 10 hp belt driven Honda 15" blower system, or a hydraulically operated 20" blower system run off main engine power. In all cases maximum simplicity has been designed into each Feed Admiral with the use of two moving hand controls for manual adjustment of feed flow from the hopper as well as adjustments to blower speed used to determine feed broadcast distance. A stainless steel flexible, hand held broadcast nozzle is designed for line-of-site placement of feed pellets anywhere within the pen. Other nozzle configurations allow for various feed broadcast patterns and feed coverage distances. At any time the operator may close the feed flow control handle to immediately stop the flow of feed as is necessary to observe feeding habits or to relocate the feeder to the next feeding location.
