The top of the range trailed Chainless balefeeder, self-loading, suitable for feeding out any bale, round or square, and it maximises feed use. The Chainless X5000 carries 2 bales at a time and is designed for medium to large operations feeding out 800-5000 bales each year.

Total Control Loading

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.The single hydraulic ram of Hustler’s Total Control 2 loading system makes loading faster and prevents bales falling on the operator during unwrapping. A bigger tyne frame provides extra support for soft or square bales.



No troublesome feed chains is a key advantage for reliability, lower maintenance and quieter operation. 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.


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. 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 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.


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.


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.
