For 47 years, Italian family-owned business Faresin Industries has been manufacturing feeding solutions to assist producers to maximise feed efficiency.

First introduced in 2002, Faresin Industries feed mixers and telehandlers have been solely imported into Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea by Chesterfield Australia since March 2014.

Chesterfield supplies a wide range of Faresin mixers.

The four-wheel-drive, four-wheel-steer self-propelled mixers start at a compact 11 cubic metres up to an impressive 33cu m capacity

The range of trailed mixers start at five cubic metres up to a triple axle, triple auger 46cu m capacity.

Faresin product manager, Ian Luscombe, said there are a number of benefits to using a self-propelled feed wagon.

"The major factors in owning a self-propelled feed wagon is that it only requires a one-man operation to load and unload," Mr Luscombe said.

"It helps create efficiency in ration build to discharge time and eliminates the need for extra machinery as it doesn't need a tractor to tow it or a loader to load it.

"Mid to large beef feedlot operators and dairies should consider the self-propelled type of feed wagons as they offer them labour savings and a quicker turnaround to build and deliver rations."

"The trailed mixers suit anyone who now realises the benefits in preparing nutritional supplementary feeds or to put in place a total feed ration operation to save money on wasted commodities being fed out to the ground, no matter the size of the herd."

Faresin prides itself on manufacturing quality feed wagons and believes that quality starts with the materials used.

"The most important information a prospective buyer should consider is the quality and grade of steel used in manufacturing," Mr Luscombe said.

"Faresin only uses high-grade S355 structural steel.

"That is why we offer a warranty of two years or 2000 hours, whichever occurs first, on our telehandlers and self-propelled mixers.

"We offer three years front-to-back on trailed mixers."

Mr Luscombe said there are a number of features that stand the Faresin mixers out from the competition.

"The auger design makes a considerable difference between manufacturers in the ability to cope with the varieties of dry matter feed that we see in Australia," he said.

"Chesterfield has had significant input into the engineering on the type of augers found in the Faresin mixer with its unique power blade made from durable Durostat steel on the bottom flight of the augers.

"There is also a new designed door and belt widths on the PF (Precision Feeding) range of mixers.

"They have increased from 700 millimetres to 900mm. which speeds up the discharge rate.

"Another standout feature is Faresin's ability to have a dual elevator arrangement on the one machine - 1250mm and 3200mm - combined with specifically designed belts to suit the application.

"For ease of use, all the machine controls are in the one hand-piece in the cab, with electric over hydraulic functions, and a variable belt speed controller.

As well as mixer wagons, Faresin supplies a range of telehandlers that complete many more functions than simply loading.

"For the past 30 years, telehandlers have evolved in Australia to become the versatile machine you would find on a farm these days," Mr Luscombe said.

"They are no longer seen as a wish list item, they are now one of the most regularly used machines in everyday farming life due to their versatility and capabilities.

"Faresin's telehandlers range from 2600 kilograms to 7000kg capacity with 6 to 17 metre lift heights.

"They are a true multi-purpose on-farm piece of equipment with four-wheel-drive and four-wheel-steer.

"It gives you a high reach forklift, a loader, bale handler, post hole borer, and a trencher.

"There is a multitude of attachments that can be fitted to the Faresin telehandler that no other type of equipment can offer in one machine.

"The best feature of the Faresin in today's world of electronics and computers is its simplicity in design - to be built with the least amount of electronic functions to perform the tasks of a utility farm machine."

Faresin products are distributed via 59 dealer locations throughout Australia, New Zealand and PNG.
