ring that's too small or suspended too
narrowly cannot provide efficient traversing
power because it can't keep the unit level
and it can't distribute the power properly.
Only with a correctly- suspended real ring
like VOLUMAXX will you get all of the benefits
of a ring-drive.
VOLUMAXX, seventh generation of the industry's leading
real ringdrive unloader. It's the result of 38 years
of experience that began with development of the first
ringdrive unloader. It has no "nuisance weights"
to adjust in order to keep the machine level. It doesn't
rely on a lead auger to do part of the driving of
the machine, but does have wide, three-cable, wall-to-wall
The whole idea of a ring-drive is to put the power
and leveling requirements on the ring and the hexapod
so the auger can spend its time doing the job it's
supposed to do - that of digging and moving silage
with plenty of highly concentrated power. When you
try to get along with a "make believe" ring-drive
unloader, you get too much wasted power, too many
headaches, too much inefficiency and too much wasted
