Cumberland’s direct and belt drive Chain Feeder Systems represent the classic, proven technique for even, low-stress distribution of feed providing equal access of feed to all birds and assuring uniform development.
Cumberland’s Durable Hoppers
Cumberland’s mini-hoppers are built to last utilizing highly advanced welding for strong connections and a multistage cleaning process including shot-blasting and electrostatic powder coating, oven baked for a durable finish. Mini-hoppers are available in a full range of formats from 1-line, 1-way to 6-line, 2-way, and come standard with feed return wheels and feed level adjustments. Fill hoppers, mini-hoppers and our new single drive unit complete our full line of feeding equipment.
The traditional yoke weldment connecting the drive gears to the motor (an annoying source of shearing and misalignment in chain feeder systems) has been eliminated and replaced by a precision-machined design that reduces the number of parts, guarantees proper alignment and significantly enhances dependability.
Completely enclosed in a powder coated, steel housing, the corner mechanism is specifically designed for low maintenance and high performance. Mounted on a hardened steel base plate, the corner guide rail and fluted wheel provide maximum wear resistance while assuring smooth chain movement.
Troughs and Grills
Troughs are available in two sizes: a smaller design for pullets and a larger trough (with a “feed saver” lip) for hens. Grills are available in almost any configuration to control access in any category.
Trough couplers are available in a full range of formats: 6″, 8″ and 12″ (15.2 cm, 20.3 cm and 30.5 cm) lengths with clip-on or wrap around hangers. Heavy duty “J” hangars are also available. Adjustable leg stands are available, as well as corners and couplers with metal leg stands.
