Meyer Farm Equipment F585
- The Formula to a good ration starts with the basics. Precisely engineered tank walls, baffles and screws provide accuracy and consistency that you expect!
- Precisely Engineered Augers - propel your ration up the center of the auger and then down along the outside walls for fast processing while maximizing end-to-end movement between the 2 screws.
- Lead Edge Scraper is adjustable and replaceable, it is responsible for initiating efficient feed movement in the Formula Mixer (Heat treated - high carbon steel).
- Auger Discharge Kicker Arm (right side of graphic) provides an extra sweep with every revolution, allowing smoother feedout in less time!
- Unique 3 piece knife design saves you time and money! This system offers added strength, simple adjustability and reduced replacement costs. (tungsten carbinate coated knives)
- Step Baffle System
This unique Step Baffle System aids in front/rear feed movement, reduces horsepower requirements while eliminating overprocessing! Made from High Carbon Steel to reduce wear! NOTICE THE 4" STEP WHERE THE BAFFLE MEETS THE FLOOR.
- Split Drive Protection
Meyer Formula mid and large frame twin screw mixers feature a unique split drive system that provides unprecidented protection to the drive system of your mixer. Each planetary is individually protected by a torque disconnect clutch. This system eliminates undue stress on the front planetary drive.
- Electric 2-Speed Shifting
Electric 2-Speed shifting standard. Meyer Formula mid-sized mixers operate at 30 RPM in Low Range & 46 RPM in High Range. You can expect efficient mixing, reduced stress on your tractor PTO and faster cleanouts with this simple system!

- Poly Lined Door Tracks
All Door Tracks are poly lined for reduced wear and stress. They also eliminate freeze up issues and provide easy long term replacement!

Hay Stops are double acting and easily adjust for tuning when processing long stemmed material. Most other hay stops only adjust 1 direction (top or bottom - Meyer does both). 2 Stops are standard equipment.
- Belt Capacity Extension
8" Belt Capacity Extension packages are available for all Formula Mixers. They generally add about 10% to the mixer capacity (Optional).
- Hay Retention Ring
Meyer offers a optional hay retention package. This package is useful when high volumes of long stem material are in your batch. Itkeeps hay from boiling over the tank and maintains good contact between the bale and auger knives.
- Stainless Steel Side & Baffle Liners as well as Heat-Treated Auger Flighting available as an option for high usage applications.
- Meyer offers a wide variety of scalehead options from Digi-Star and Avery Weightronics. Weigh bars and junction box come standard with all Formula mixers.
- Conveyor Gets Weighed!
All Formula models weigh product in the mixer tub and on the conveyor - unlike many brands that fail to weigh product that has exited the tank.
- Door Options
Formula Mixers offer a wide array of door options. Choose from Front Door, Rear Door, RH Side Door, LH Side Door or RH/LH Side Door to match your particular needs. Check out the size of these openings - big door opening combined with faster auger speed provide faster discharge and cleanout!
