Jaylor introduces new ribbon auger, intelligent controller

Advanced control systems enable independent mixer and truck engine speeds while reducing stress and wear on the entire system

Jaylor announced it has released its patented ribbon-style augers for horizontal mixers.

This new auger style provides additional benefits of reducing mix times by up to one-third and increasing mix capacity of 10-20% (measured by weight), Jaylor said. Early adopters of the new system also note the improved ability of this style of auger to maintain large flake integrity.

Jaylor is known for its patented square-cut auger in their vertical mixers and is increasing manufacturing capacity to repeat the success with this improved auger design in its Quad Auger Horizontal Mixer.

Also now available, the Heavy Duty Trailer models utilize the same commercial-grade components as the truck-mounted configuration, with proven reliability in demanding feedlot applications. Model H1650, the smallest of the three models offered, was revealed at the recent National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Ky.

Offered on the equipment is a state-of-the-art OrbitEvo 6520 Intelligent Controller. This proprietary hydrostatic planetary drive system and smart controller ensure power and performance that deliver feed accurately and efficiently. Similar in concept to a CVT, the OrbitEvo Controller automatically constantly varies the hydrostatic pump and motor for optimal load balancing, Jaylor said.

Continuous monitoring while mixing provides automatic load balancing and adjustments even regulating engine RPM to coincide with pump flow and pressure as well as motor flow and pressure. In addition, fine-tune control of auger RPM during feedout combined with a simple gravity chute allows even inexperienced operators to achieve single-pass feeding.

A five-button joystick activates all the functions and the OrbitEvo 6520 takes care of the rest, drastically reducing training required for drivers. It incorporates seven sensors logging system temperatures, oil level, pressures and flow for effective preventative maintenance and safely disengages on configurable over-threshold events ensuring system longevity.

These advanced control systems enable independent mixer and truck engine speeds while reducing stress and wear on the entire system, including the truck engine, hydrostatic pump and motor, Jaylor said. In the low torque phase of cleanout the augers can be spun up to over 20 RPM while the truck is close to idle. In addition to improved longevity, the proprietary OrbitEvo 6520 system combined with Ribbon Augers also shows results in fuel saving of up to 1 gal. per hour, when compared to conventional horizontal mixers.

Jaylor Fabricating Inc. is located in Orton, Ont., and manufacturers farm equipment, primarily total mixed ration mixers for the beef and dairy industry.
