Feeding down a central passage with telehandler

but you still need a telehandler to load it, unless your seriously keen with a fork/shovel! A auger bucket wouldnt suit everyone but is certainly a good alternative for someone who's setup/system doesnt suit a wagon.

Currently just using a wagon and loader tractor to fill and feed out works fine. Any system would work if you make it.
For you a feeder bucket works fine as you wouldn't be feeding much blend down the feed fence? All through the oopf and robot

Gelli Aur did an interesting trial last winter, they now use a block cutter putting silage out about once per week (maybe every 5 -7 days) so they analysed the silage in the block on the edge furthest away from the cows (and therefore exposed the longest) and it showed that the deterioration over the week was negligible.
Be similar to the way we put bales along the feed fence every 3-4 days because I'm lazy

2.5hrs,mixing the heap in the clamp takes the most time.

I've 60 heifers I feed along a barrier using my shear bucket,I just tip it out and push it round to them,I can feed them in a crack,ok if your feeding just silage.

Sounds like work and the wear on the Loadall will be frightening with all that shuttling about at breakneck speeds between clamp and sheds.

I don't actually run a telehandler at the moment, just a 120hp loader tractor, so perhaps a forage box will be my best option (n). Load her up, hitch on and dish it out with one tractor.

I know they don't have their fans on here, but would be a cheap solution compared with £50k Loadalls and £10k auger buckets

Forage box an a old humper to power it, you will get mighty sick of dropping off and on all the time.

A feeder wagon will be fine with just a loader tractor, you'll get more for your money buying a wagon aswell, there's some cheap wagons about.

My uncle ran his hi-spec mixer wagon on a ford 4000 for over ten years,you don't need much power on a hi-spec and they are so simple to keep going,I've one down the field I'll sell you for sub £1k :)
 
Id go feeder wagon but the OP says he ain't having one.
For a narrow passage to work it needs to be narrow, 8/9 foot is far too wide.
Best bet is a wide passage, wider the better to give room to push up silage, it also has the advantage that if in future you change your mind there's plenty of room for a feeder wagon.

What machine have you used this on and did you see @ACEngineering posts of doom over these buckets hydraulic needs.

2010 536-60 JCB bosses the bucket hydraulic wise, you know it’s on there weight wise. Had a builders spec 2002 530-70 when we first got it and it managed ok but was quicker with the 536-60. I had seen those posts and I wouldnt question anything @ACEngineering as he is the handler guru but ours has always managed fine, just struggles with wagon silage.
