Spread-a-Bale has introduced a new spreader head option to its current portfolio which extends the spread distance and is said to enable farmers to make further reductions in straw spreading time and labour. As well as this, the company states that operators can make straw savings of between 30% and 50%.
The Horizontal Rotor (HR) features a single horizontal rotor which delivers straw in a linear spread pattern, one metre wide and thrown to up to 12m, with minimal dust generation. Only one materials handler is required to operate.
It can be fitted to any of the Spread-a-Bale M range, and is available on both front end and side mounted models.
Spread-a-Bale’s Michael Hughes explained: “The new spreader head’s single horizontal rotor is an alternative new option to Spread-a-Bale’s two contra rotating rotors, enabling straw to be thrown longer distances in a linear, one meter wide fashion, and it is particularly suitable for side mounted materials handlers. The HR is of particular interest for pig producers providing them with a first-time opportunity to more precisely bed up their pig arcs.”
