Returning to Lamma, G T Bunning and Sons will exhibit a spreader equipped with large-diameter, narrow tyres to give growers the option to reduce crop damage during spring applications.
Three machines will be on the stand, including the Lowlander 120 HY HBD, which is shod with Alliance 580/85 R42 IF tyres, which feature a longer tread pattern and bring the overall width down to 2,820mm.
As it is a Hybrid machine, it also features a wider spreading design taken from the larger models, which is said to improve the shredding of cattle muck for greater accuracy and weigh cells for rate control.
Ben Johnson, sales manager for the UK and Ireland, says that the new tyre options will appeal to growers for several reasons.
“The 120 HY HBD model on the stand allows a 19.1cu m load due to the built-in flared side extensions, but crucially features a shorter wheelbase than the bigger Lowlander 150 model, so it will lessen crop damage when turning on the headlands.
“We are seeing more customers wanting to top-dress in the spring, so the narrower tyres and shorter machines offer good output whilst reducing crop damage,” he said.
Also on the stand will be a 120 HY TVA with redesigned, large-diameter bottom spreading blades for increased accuracy and weigh cells. A smaller 105 TVA will also be shown, aimed at smaller farms looking to utilise their own manure.
“We look forward to seeing existing and new customers at Lamma in January. Demand for accurately applying organic manures continues to grow and our range of spreaders and technology can help to reduce input costs through precise spreading,” concluded Mr Johnson.
