Cloverdale Equipment, LLC

The sky’s the limit.

Cloverdale offers a standard 5 year or 5,000 load warranty on the side walls, floor, auger and frame. These are the areas of a mixer that are expensive to repair and add to the overall cost of operation once you purchase a mixer. The following photos show the wear patterns at 5,000, 8171 and 9963 loads on a 1100 cu. ft. Cloverdale, on a dairy operation. There are too many variables to determine what you can expect on your feeding operation. This is why we are showing wear patterns on a mixer that is nearly 5,000 loads beyond the 5,000 load warranty.

A2 – Side view, 9963 loads, 221,107,910 lbs. of feed.

B – Auger flighting w/optional hard surfacing, 5018 loads, 125 million lbs. of feed.

B1 – Auger flighting w/optional hard surfacing, 8171 loads, 189 million lbs. of feed.

B2 – Auger flighting w/optional hard surfacing, 9963 loads, 221,107,910 lbs. of feed.

The hard surfacing is wearing but remains intact. At 9963 loads you can see the auger wear is starting to under-cut the hard surfacing, but still has significant metal thickness.

D – baffle edge, 5018 loads, 125 million lbs. of feed.

D1 – baffle edge, 8171 loads, 189 million lbs. of feed.

D2 – baffle edge, 9963 loads, 221,107,910 lbs. of feed.

The baffle edge is reinforced with a stainless steel guard. The photos show the baffle is intact with some wear and the progression of the floor wear.

E – leading edge of the door, 5018 loads, 125 million lbs. of feed.

E1 – leading edge of door, 8171 loads, 189 million lbs. of feed.

E2 – leading edge od door, 9963 loads, 221,107,910 lbs. of feed.

The door edge is a great indicator of side wall wear. It tends to show the most wear because of the feed constantly pushing on the R.H. edge of the door during unloading. At 8171 loads, the door edge remains square, but starts to lose its square edge at 9963 loads.
