Frantumix from TUFFASS is the only machine designed specifically to prepare litter for chickens, turkeys and ducks and then maintain it as dry crumbly healthy litter through the growing cycle. It overcomes nearly all problems associated with litter by crumbling, turning and aerating the material properly, keeping it healthy and reducing smell and harmful gasses.

The RSPCA Animal Farming Scheme standards introduced in May 2014 specifically discuss the importance of well maintained litter for the health and wellbeing of poultry, and the Frantumix from TUFFASS line of poultry conditioners are the best tool to put this into practice.

The Frantumix FM4, our heavy duty litter conditioner model, is available in three sizes - 1270mm, 1700mm and 2100mm - and can process deeper litter than the FL4: up to 300mm depth. It can be used during the entire growing cycle to process a variety of bedding and litter materials, including shavings, rice hulls, sawdust, chips and wheat straw.

The FM4's unique ability to process deep straw litter makes it possible to produce the best litter with cheap wheat straw for as little as $5 per m3. Wheat straw is the best litter available, but it is not possible to use without this machine.

Well maintained litter can reduce mortality rates, increase feed conversion rates and allows producing more than one batch (multi-batching) on the same litter safely and profitably. Australian growers find this produces huge savings every year, improves quality and yield, and improves the work environment by reducing dust and smells.

Designed and built in Italy from over 10 years of experience and development with growers. Over 10,000 units have been sold globally.
