Suitable feeding, livestock bedding & poultry bedding (Fits 2x 5' Round Bales Or 1x Big Square)

Comfortable livestock is more productive.

For straightforward bale processing the 404M/505M/505XLM range offers fast effective milling of straw and miscanthus to a very consistent and fine length.


Blow straw up to 30', discharge to one or both sides of the tractor. Alternative delivery chutes are available to suit your requirements.

The Tomahawk 404M, 505M and 505XLM Bale Processors use Blades or Hammers to chop dry material until small enough to pass through the holes in a screen. A range of screens is available with holes from 15mm to 36mm to obtain a material of a consistent chop length.

Easy control of output by adjusting the speed of drum rotation.

  • Tomahawk 404M - Suitable for 1.2m (4') diameter bales.
  • Tomahawk 505M - Suitable for 1.5m (5') diameter bales.
  • Tomahawk 505XLM - Suitable for 1.5m (5') diameter bales and full-size Hesston bales.

Various drum extensions are available for ease of operation or to accommodate larger rectangular bales.

The 404M/505M/505XLM range is suitable for dry material only, and will not cut silage as it will block the mill sieve.

British built and backed

For your peace of mind, Tomahawks are backed by an efficient after-sales service from our production facility in Cornwall, England.

The Tomahawk Drum models are economical, simple and robust. There are no gearboxes, with the drive to the rotor being direct from the tractor, a hydraulic motor is used to rotate the drum. Due to their simplicity and strength, customers can expect a long service life from their Tomahawk.


  • Process your own straw for TMR - no need to stockpile.
  • Quicker, better TMR mixing with prechopped straw.
  • Improved palatability - chopped straw improves digestion.

  • Save Straw - users report typical savings of 30% compared to manual bedding down.
  • Cleaner livestock - healthier animals and fewer disease problems.
  • Save labour - one person bedding operation.
  • Specify the right machine for the job - short chop for poultry & cubicles, light shredding for loose housing.
