The addition of a new Axial Rotor with centralising paddles keeps the bale positioned in the centre of the feeding chamber to minimise wastage and provide better grip on soft bales.
Hustler’s proven polyethylene platforms with ribbed design keeps bales tracking straight and with 30% less friction than steel it reduces drag on the bale which makes feeding out sticky bales easier and it will never corrode. The X5000’s platform is wider to reduce waste with sloppy bales.
Feedout any bale
The Chainless X5000 is the most versatile bale feeder, it will feed out any bale round & square.
Low maintenance drive
The entire drive system is now located at the rear, which allows better manoeuverability. Bigger outboard bearing blocks are easily greased, larger shafts, automatic drive tensioners require no adjustments, and is designed to handle larger 1.5 tonne bales.
Infinite variation in feed control, allows you to feed thick for cattle, thin for sheep to increase the palatability for your stock.
The Easy Clean Hypaflo Wiper Panel minimises blockages and ensures that hay drops outside the wheel tracks to avoid being flattened into the mud. A quick release latch releases the wiper panel for easy cleaning.

Chainless – no troublesome feed chains is a key advantage for – Reliability, lower maintenance and quieter operation, the teasing action of the rotors uses feed more economically, because it is easier for the cattle as they can eat it because it is fluffed up. The Chainless X5000 can effectively feed out any bale type in both round or square. Chainless is a virtually silent feeding operation which means stock are more comfortable.
The new rotor shape has better penetratration on tight bales and the shape cleans sticky bales better. The new Axial rotor centralizes the bale in the feeding chamber, so that there is less wastage. It has more grip on sloppy, rotor cut bales which makes feeding them out easier and more efficient. The larger bale chamber makes it possible to feed out a wider range of bales, and also makes using the X5000 very simple for operators of all skill levels and reduces the need for platform adjustment.
The new Easy Clean Hypaflo wiper panel – The newly developed wiper panel that clears the hay from the rotors better. It has a new quick release latching system for releasing the panel to clean out any hay.
Total Control 2 Loading system – gives you total control over loading the bale. The simple, reliable and fool-proof single cylinder design of the Hustler loading system is safer than other loading systems and allows unwrapping of the bale above the feed cradle, reducing waste. The Hustler loading system can be reversed if the operator decides not to load that bale. It also has more support area for soft or square bales. The X5000 has more leverage, stronger design and larger 1.5 tonne capacity.
Loaded with time-saving and money-saving features such as; QRC Grips, the optional LoadCam, Drawbar hose holder, biggest stub axles on the market, Loadial loading indicator, Feedguide built in platform height guide, mudguards, Hustler’s stamp of quality, full 2 year warranty, and much more…
Stability – The Chainless x5000 with its low centre of gravity and wide wheel track makes it the most stable bale feeder on the market when in operation adding peace of mind.
Designed to help when feeding out onto feedpads, over hotwires, or into troughs. Angle is fully adjustable and there is more clearance and longer reach to allow to higher troughs or hotwires.
Trac grip tyres:
Grippy 10/75-R15.3 traction tyres for extra stability on steeper terrain.
Square bale extension:
An extension bar extends the platform for extra support for 8’ bales.
Another industry first from Hustler. The optional LoadCam makes lining up the second bale easier.
