The Montgomery Powered Feed Roll is designed to work with our Current Sensing Unit to process slabs in a horizontal feed configuration. They are available for all horizontal infeed hogs–including blo-hogs, horizontal discharge hogs, and rear discharge hogs.
The combination of a Powered Feed Roll and Current Sensing Unit also empowers the hog to successfully feed at a lower RPM, which results in a lower level of operating noise. Adjustable pressure via a counterweight system requires no hydraulics or pneumatics. Straightforward and tough.

Powered Feed Roll Components
Montgomery Powered Feed Rolls are compatible with all horizontal infeed models, even horizontal blo-hogs.
Locking Padeyes for Easy Maintenance
Convenient Locking Padeyes on the Hog housing allow for the Feed Roll to be locked in its maintenance position. This makes it easier to change anvils, replace feed roll spikes, and perform other routine maintenance.
Counterweights for Controlled Feed
Counterweights on the back of the Powered Feed Roll allow the user to control the resistance to feed. The counterweights allow the feed to be throttled or increased depending on the application. Best of all, the counterweight system allows for the Montgomery Powered Feed Roll to function without the hassle of hydraulics or pneumatics.
Feed Height Adjusters
Feed Height Adjusters located on the Hog housing allow the user to adjust the height of the Powered Feed Roll. The Feed Roll can be raised or lowered to let in different heights of scrap, depending on the application.
Rotating Drum for Optimal Infeed
A rotating drum with spikes allows for infeed material to be gripped and pulled into the Hog cutting chamber.
Guard Covers over both Feed Roll arms help to keep dust at bay. They also help protect the Powered Feed Roll motor and gear reducer from the elements.
Flange bearings allow for minimal resistance between the Feed Roll pivot shafts and the hog housing, keeping everything running smoothly.
