If you are looking for a chaff cutter machine for agriculture use then you are at the right place. Here in this post, I will suggest you the best chaff cutter that will provide you the best value for your farm.
A chaff cutter is a basic need for livestock farms. Generally, the Cattle, Buffalo, and goat required 2% green fodder according to their Bodyweight. If you are doing livestock farming ‘’Pashupalan’’ then a Chaff cutter is quite important for your farm.
Why are Chaff Cutter Machine important for farms?
Generally, if you don’t cut the grasses then animal wastage all your green fodder if they are not cut in pieces.
I am also running a farm where I am raising cows, Buffalo, and Goats. At the beginning of my farm I give the berseem without cutting and 60% of my green fodder wastes.
When I bought a green fodder cutter machine, my problem of wasting the green fodder has been solved.
With the help of this machine, you can make tonnes of silage easily. Generally, the maize silage is mostly used to make silage.
Types of chaff cutter machine for agriculture
There are two types of chaff cutter machines used in livestock agriculture farming both are the best but different in cost, you have to select the machine according to the number of cows, buffaloes, and goats on your farm.
Chaff cutter machine with Motor or Electric chaff cutter
If you have more than five animals on your farm then you should use a chaff cutter with a motor because it can save your time and labor cost. With the help of this machine, you can cut 100 kg of grass in just 10 minutes.
This type of chaff cutter also known as Electric chaff cutter machine
The motor is run by electricity and cut the grass faster than manual, it is easy to use that helps to run your big farm in an efficient manner.
The cutting size of grasses may vary depending on the density of grass, for example, the Stem size will be different or the same, and leaf size will be different.
The electric chaff cutter can run on 1HP motor, 2 HP motor, and 3HP motor, and 5 HP motor, it depends on you. Powerful the motor is, faster production of grasses you will get.
Price Range of electric chaff cutter
The Price of an Electric chaff cutter machine ranges from 25000 to 50000 depending on how big the machine is.
Manual chaff cutter machine or hand operated chaff cutter
If you have five animals on your farm then you can use a manual chaff cutter, it works slowly and the output of grass totally depends on the working efficiency of man. The faster you run, the more cutting grass you will get.
The size of cutting depends on the speed or running of round run by man.
Price range of Manual chaff cutter
Price range of Manual chaff cutter starts from 5000 and ended up to 20000
Tractor operated chaff cutter machine
This is costlier than the above two chaff cutters. It is mainly used to make silage and as per me, this machine is not user friendly compared to a chaff cutter with a motor.
If you have 100 large size animals like cow or buffalo the you can go with a tractor operated chaff cutter.
