Working closely together with our pilot customers worldwide, we received very valuable feedback whilst developing the Astronaut A5. Based on this feedback, important parts and processes were redesigned leading to lowering the energy consumption of the milking robot.
The unique hybrid arm in combination with lowering the detergent and water consumption results in an energy use reduction of up to 20%.
Reliability for maximum uptime
The Lely Astronaut A5 has a very solid construction with limited electrical and fast movements. In addition, thanks to the spacious heart of the robot – the central unit – robot parts are better in reach, enabling technicians to carry out the (preventive) service faster.
This results in a reliable and easy to service robot. Giving you the opportunity to enjoy maximum uptime and lower maintenance costs.
Lower cost per kilo milk
Easy to service, built to last and energy-friendly: that is what you will experience when milking with the Lely Astronaut A5. Add to that optimal cow comfort and you’ll enjoy a higher milk yield at lower costs.
Please contact us or your local dealer for more information on what milking with the Lely Astronaut A5 can bring to you and your dairy farm.

10 years of Vector, thanks to our test and validation customers!
Lely installed the first Vector system on a number of dairy farms back in 2011. The Overbeek family in Benschop run such a farm, (NL), where they had already shown an interest in automatic milking and feeding when building a new barn for their dairy cows. The family initially started using the Astronaut A3 Next for automatic milking, then also switched to the Lely Vector for automatic feeding. Kees and Sjors Overbeek had already used automatic feeding at their old farm, but it was a rail system. The Vector offered them much more flexibility.
