There are more sales in 3HP chaff cutters compared with the other types of chaff cutters.
Why Farmers Choosing and Uses
There are several uses for the 3HP chaff cutter compared with the other variants of chaff cutter.
Price in Budget
Compared to 2HP chaff cutters 3HP chaffing machines available is the best in price there is only a slight price difference but when it comes to 5 it is more in cost so farmers are likely to invest in 3HP compared with other variants of chaff cutter motor types.
To go with a 5HP Chaff cutter will be like 30 to 40 per cent in price difference instead of that choosing 3HP will be the best idea for the investment
Long term Investment
You need not spend much money again and again you can scale the farm size with the 3HP without changing the motor it will work for 1-2 cows to 10 cows.
while making an initial investment it will work for the long term without changing the motor and machinery
3HP is sufficient for small and medium farms, and the performance of the machine is sufficient for small and medium-sized dairy farms.
These 3HP chaff cutters can cut from 500 to 600 KGs of grass without any breakdowns and issues you just need to sharpen the blades and clean the waste grass stuck inside the blades.
Best for Sheep and Goat Farms
Sheep and Goat farms need the combination of dry and wet grass, These 3HP chara cutters are suited to cut dry and wet grass.
as well as in sheep farms farmers cut the grasses like hedge lucerne, mulberry, and waste peanut trees
This machine can be used to make the right proportion of feed to grow the animals with good health and growth
Medium Sized Farms
In India, most of them are small and medium-sized farms the availability of the land is 2-5 acres on average for each farmer.
To meet the requirement he is not ready to invest more money and not ready to go with the lowest performance so 3HP is well-suited
The cost of maintenance is very less compared to the 1HP and 2HP chaff cutters.
The performance is sufficient and with no high usage, there will be less maintenance.
Medium-sized farms chaff an average of 1200 KGs of grass per day which takes 2 hours to 2.5 hours of performance which is not high
The power system for farmers it ideally installed to use 2-7HP motors, most water pumps are 5HP in this case there is less problem with the use of a 3HP motor for the chaff cutter.
Power issues do not arise as it is suitable for the available installed power system in the farms.
Disadvantages of 3HP chaff Cutter
Not suitable for Larger Farms
Larger Farms require a high amount of chaffed grass and a large amount of dry feed. to meet this 3HP chaff cutter does not suit it will take a lot of time and increase labour costs.
Larger farms use tractor-mounted chaff cutters which are above 45HP of tractor engine power which makes the highest chaffing power.
Maintenance and Durability
Chaff cutters need regular maintenance irrespective of the horsepower, the components are not as robust as found in the highest horsepower chaff cutters.
Due to the lowest horsepower and less robust power which causes frequent breakdowns
The prices of 3HP are more in demand and the most used models so due to the high demand the price will be high, within the slightly higher price we get a 5HP motor hence the components will cost more.
So people prefer and adjust to the 3HP chaff cutters as these machines are sufficient for medium-sized farms
