Patent Application

Sinch Square Bale Feeders was invented and patent applied for in April 2006 by Gerard Kenna at the family dairy farm "Scarriff"Western Victoria Australia.The USA Patent Office has issued Patent Number 8371791 on Feb 12th 2013. The goal initially was to find a quick cost effective means of feeding large square bales of silage.Over time he developed a safe, fast and simple way to feed out big loads of square bale silage and hay.The very first machine (cable driven) installed on a 33 foot length hay trailer with a front axle turntable and rear axle has in 2012 been completely stripped down and fitted out with the latest laser cut components. All the Sinch Square Bale Feeders displayed on this website are the original machines and are still going strong and trouble free.His company has further invested heavily since 2006 in Research and Development to the point where even though the latest bale trailer look the same as the originals, the working componentry is even simpler, therefore less expensive and virtually unbreakable.The exhaustive and extensive research is carried out at Scarriff and surrounding customers farms on an ongoing daily basis.

Since Easter 2006

Sinch Square Bale Feeders won first prize at Sheepvention Hamilton August 2006 and became a finalist in the National Agricultural Inventors Awards at the Australian National Field Days at Orange New South Wales, October 2006. It was then known as The Extruder. The Extruder's name was then changed and trademarked as The Sinch Bale Trailer Feeder as the name Extruder could not be trademarked. The Sinch Bale feeder was then officially launched at Sungold Field Days 2007 and taken to Farm World Lardner Park February 2007, The Sinch then won at The DairyVator Innovation Awards for South West Victoria 2007.

Research & Development

The Flakers were added early in 2009 and with exhaustive research and development since 2006 these square bale hay feeders are taking their place as the premier square bale feeder on the world market.To give an insight into the quality of Sinch Bale Feeders the working load capacity of the main components is much above what is needed ( these have been sourced from the mining industry ) and will last a very long long time. This square bale feeder has been refined and simplified to the degree that it only requires 2 hydraulic hoses and the sole control is one single lever already inside the cab. Remarkably there is only one hydraulically driven gearbox.

The hay trailers that Sinch Bale Feeders are installed on usually have load capability that enables them to be used for numerous other farm tasks including transporting loads of hay and silage. The best and most efficient square bale trailers for a Sinch Square Bale Feeder to be installed on have pick up hitch.In USA WE INTEND  TO HAVE THE FULL RANGE 2,4,6,8, & 10 BALE UNITS ON GOOSENECK TRAILERS.The pick up hitch enables quicker connection and disconnection with the added advantage of greater weight distribution on the tractor giving added safety. The larger farming operations where the stack is distant from feedout area are loading their Sinch Square Bale Feeders with 30-40 bales from the stack then transporting to the feed out paddocks then unloading the top layers so that one layer is fed at a time.

Where necessary the components are precision laser cut and relatively simple to install.
