Silage Shear Grab

Challenge silage shear grab design and features

Fit your compatible front-end loader to a Challenge silage shear grab and cut silage blocks from a silage pit, leaving a smooth face that is sealed to prevent spoilage. The rounded front profile of the grab is forced through the silage in a circular motion, reducing the cutting force required and ensuring an efficient, clean cut. The Challenge silage shear grab attachment comes in two sizes with a bunch of features.

  • The ability to cut silage into blocks leaving a smooth face that is sealed to prevent spoilage
  • Hardened serrated front knife and hardened plain knives on the sides for accurate silage cutting
  • The two heavy-duty hydraulic cylinders provide ample cutting force and the attachment is fitted with quality heavy-duty tines to accommodate this
  • Comes in two widths, see specifications for the finer details
  • The tines are spaced to ensure wastage from material being handled stays confined inside the attachment
  • All tines fit into a tapered sleeve and are removable
  • Available in two hitch types; Aus and Euro


Electric third service required…

The Challenge silage shear grab requires a third hydraulic control circuit to activate the grab/cutting portion of the attachment; the electric third service feature comes standard with the Challenge CLX™ series front-end loaders.
