Best feeding/bedding machine to hold 3 tonne of clamped silage?

As above, perhaps could do with a weigher on it as that is what we are used to.
Looking to swap our old Hi Spec diet feeder used for fat cattle and suckler cows.
3t capacity max as feeding different groups. How well do they mix if at all when adding concentrate?
Could put a weigher on Jcb possibly?
Feeder/bedder would be ideal for us as can't bed all sheds with a straw chopper and at least only one tractor needed staying on one machine.
Thoughts and experiences welcome.
Thanks in advance

How well does it actually mix?

Tried mixing stuff in a straw blower/feeder in the past. It never ended well 🤣
😂 yeah I put a couple scoops of barley in ours with bale on top..... was an unholy storm of mess!! To be fair, it would seem the Teagle is maybe designed to do better.

Better to tip it on clamp floor and turn it a few times before loading, we used to do with A 9090 teagle before we got mixer wagon. Used to blow a bale of straw through it first, then mix up silage and everything else, it actually came out the teagle pretty good.

Very much looking forward to using it, but don't need such a large machine for what we are looking to achieve. No weigh cells on this one.

The mixing side isn't quite so important these days with mainly young store cattle having meal, fat cattle that are left just have it on top of silage. Most of our fat cattle are gone before they come in in October having been running in and out on grass and addlib grub.
