Two new Muck Master muckspreaders from French maker Pichon – the single-axle 17cu m M16 and the twin-axle M20, which holds a massive 24cu m – both feature fully galvanised drawbar, chassis and V-shaped body and the two vertical beaters are oversized at 1015mm or 1035mm and with 52 or 62 removable tines.

Pichon says the spreaders require relatively low horsepower for spreading and pulling. They are also said to give accurate spreading over a width of 8-15m, depending on the material. Heavy-duty 150mm diameter axles are fitted with 420x180mm high-speed brakes and a sprung drawbar is standard.
