Grinder-mixer redesign

Art’s Way redesigned one of its most popular self-standing grinder-mixers, the 5165, to create the all-new 6520. The new grinder-mixer design eliminates bevel gears from the auger system and replaces them with a hydraulic motor. The auger discharge tube is 2 inches larger now, at 10 inches, for faster feed unloading. Double knives in the mill give a more consistent feed grind with lower horsepower requirements. The unit comes with a wireless remote control. No pricing is available yet. Call 712-864-3131 or visit www.artsway-mfg.com.
