Bush Feed chipper grinder first January, 2013 Our Story!

Ritlee were the first to develop a grinder located in the discharge for grinding the chips down into a finer controlable size.

This took a few years with a lot of testing with exceptional results!

On the 06/04/2016

The first Ritlee 225 bushfeed unit was successfully demonstrated to several cattle farmers, who were invited and hosted at Wesmelk Boerdery in Stella, by owner Willie Moolman.

This was our first effort with helping farmers produce feed from local selected indigenous bush and trees
