Bale Processor with Blower
Processing bales for erosion control just got a lot easier and smoother with the introduction of Haybuster's Model 2574 blower-type processor. The newly-designed belt drive system drives the fan and rotor and allows for smooth, quiet operation. The 2574 has the capability to blow mulch up to 100 feet into those hard to reach areas. With a variety of spout options, we can offer the machine that fits your needs.

4-Groove Belt Drive System
1000 RPM PTO drive through a set of 4-groove belts that drive the fan and rotor. With belts, the 2574 becomes more durable and smoother with less maintenance.
Complete with the 3-chain slat conveyor that has been an exclusive feature with Haybuster for many years, the 2574 is now available with 1 ¼” drive shafts, bearings and heavyduty chain. The chamber is taller to accommodate today’s bigger bales. Nine slugbars hold the bale at bay from the rotor and are easily adjustable to get the product size you need.
Two-Stage Bale Loader
Haybuster’s single-cylinder two-stage loader makes it simple to load a bale into the chamber. A second bale can also be carried on the loader to expedite the job.
The fan in the blower has replaceable fins and shafts that can be replaced without removing the blower from the machine. The 2574 has three spout options which do the jobs of cattle feeding and bedding, and also erosion control.
Versatile hitch that positions machine directly behind tractor for transport and loading on trailer.
Accessible through a large access door for twine removal and maintenance. Product flows directly from auger into the blower. Many different size screens are available to fit the job. The rotor has 2” drive shafts and still comes with 40 flails for increased performance.
Optional Additional Axle
Adding an axle minimizes the tongue weight and makes it more stable, especially when backing on a trailer. (Highway tire only)
3 foot, 80 degree Enclosed Curved Spout
This spout can be rotated 360 degrees with the in-cab joystick control which can easily allow you to position the desired amount of product anywhere you want. It also has attachments that will allow you to direct your material and blow through a 10” hose.
The straw cannon will shoot straw mulch up to 100 feet. It works well for slopes and those hard to reach areas that are not easily accessible.

|Discharge Spout Options
- 3 ft Curved Spout Kit (open curve) - for most applications such as feeding, bedding and erosion control .
Enclosed curved spout with flanged end- facilitates farther application of mulch/bedding than the open curved spout- almost as far as straw cannon- and can be rotated 360 degrees.
- Straw Cannon Kit - for bedding and erosion control - shoots straw up to 100 feet.
- Mini-gun Spout - The mini gun gives the operator an adjustable deflector to put on the enclosed curve spout. Thus giving more control of the product stream.
- 10” x 25’ and 10” x 50’ hose kits- for placing mulch and bedding more precisely. Great for poultry barns, smaller areas that need to be mulched. Note: there is an adaptor in the hose kit that replaces the spout on the transition.
- Without a Spout - Using just the transition without any spout is useful in areas where distance (0 to 40 ft (12.2m)) is not an issue.
||12" bolt on axle extensions - provide improved stability on slopes
||2nd Axle with Spindles, Hubs, Bolts and Highway Tires with Rims. By adding an axle, you minimize the tongue weight and keep your compaction to a minimum. Available with highway tires only.
