“Increase Productivity – Drive Profitability”
It is not just BvL’s 150 years of experience in the construction of agricultural machinery that has its reputation, it is also the German determination to succeed in products of reliability & quality. As a result of this focus, BvL’s family-owned company continue to become world leaders in innovative ideas, fully developed technology and comprehensive service.
Faster and easier mixing process for high fodder quality
Exact fodder discharge with the patented EDS system
More than 1000 variants: The right machine for every farm.
Highest quality, Made in Germany,
Reliable, sturdy and innovative technology
The patented EDS (Exact Dosing System) provides a fast and consistent discharge. With the asymmetrically arranged side doors, the fodder comes out at the widest point on the side of the mixer wagon, deposited in a loose even swath without driving over it.
Fast, with optimal volume utilization
The asymmetrically positioned counter knives guarantee an optimal interface between the two mixing chambers. With the optimised geometry of the counter knives, the BvL achieves excellent volume utilisation with a relatively low power requirement.

Features & Benefits
BvL’s are constructed with a 20mm floor plate and 8mm sidewalls. The sidewalls are lapped at the joints and fillet welded on both sides. This double thickness is positioned at the highest wear point of the bowl – greatly increasing the wall strength and life expectancy.
Auger flight joins are normally a weak point on mixer wagons. BvL overcomes this by overlapping each join resulting in unmatched strength and durability.
The anti-spill ring works by preventing feed spillage out of the wagon while mixing – especially effective on dry & fibrous material. The anti-spill ring holds pressure on the material for the augers to cut & mix faster with maximum consistency. It also increases the strength of the bin in the event of the loading tractor hitting the mixer.
BvL Mixer Wagon Chassis
The BvL is running on a separate truck-style chassis, designed to take out the ex and vibration of driving around the farm. There are four independent weigh cells, one in each corner for consistent weighing. (Versus many other mixers which have the chassis welded to the mixing bowl with only 3 weigh cells. One on each axle and one on the drawbar. This system gives a less accurate weighing.)
BvL Exact Dosing System
This system uses the asymmetrical design along with the sharks bite on the augers to ensure full utilization of the bowl capacity and to make sure that trace elements which find their way to the bottom of the bowl are evenly mixed. This, in turn, results in a consistent ow of product discharged through the door opening that is positioned at the widest possible position to ensure the product is deposited as a loose, even swathe.
BvL heavy Duty Elevator
The specially designed ‘V’ shaped self-tracking & self-cleaning cage rollers are at the heart of the BvL conveyor system, eliminating build-up and keeping tracking true. Quality is further enhanced with a 6mm double layered rubber belt. The centring guides and cleats are made from tough vulcanised rubber, and the belts are set with a very simple yet strong joiner that ensures a long and trouble-free life
George Campbell BvL Mixer Wagon
With 1200 cows on 327Ha, George and Mark Campbell run Campbell Farms, 20 minutes south of Te Awamutu. Campbells have been running a mixer wagon since 2010 and added a BvL V-Mix 27 Mixer wagon in 2014. “We purchased a BvL because of their superior build quality, quality and speed of mix, and how easy it is to tow.”
Richard Greenvile BvL Mixer Wagon
Waikato dairy farmer Richard Greenville milks over 900 cows on his two farms. After 40 years of dairy farming, he knows a lot about getting the most from limited resources and running a lean operation. In 2016, he decided to add a BvL mixer wagon into his 580 cow home farm operation. “We have got big gains from the mixer wagon”, said Richard, “Over the five years with the mixer, our production has increased from 180,000 to over 245,000MS.”
Tony & Lucas Allcock BvL Mixer Wagon
Dairy farming ten minutes north of Te Awamutu, Tony and Lucas Allcock run 280 Fresian cows through a composting barn system. The first season with the BvL Mixer Wagon saw a lift in production of 28%. “We went from 99,000MS to 128,000 without spending any more on feed compared to in shed feeding.”
Vawn Wriggley BvL Mixer Wagon
South Otago dairy farmer Vawn Wriggley runs 380 cows just out of Balclutha, Otago. “A big thing with a mixer wagon is we can pile on the feed during the winter months,” he said, “This means when we put them outside, they are settled and comfortable. They don’t go wandering around the paddocks, messing things up.”
