Maximum capacity on a single axle is the main characteristic of the new Lowlander 175 Heavy Duty manure spreader from GT Bunning making its Lamma debut.
Aimed at contractors and larger farms, the newcomer runs on 710/70R42 heavy loading rating tyres on a 150mm square solid axle rated at 30t and with 420mm x 200mm brakes. There is also a heavy duty sprung drawbar.
Floor chains rated at 50t convey a heaped load of 25cu m in the low-profile body, which has flared upper sections similar to those of the Bunning Widebody spreaders. Material is discharged from either twin vertical beaters or enclosed horizontal beaters and discs – which is the format of the machine being displayed at Lamma.
