Hopper joins add-on list

SYSTEMS tractors need systems equipment to make best use of their multi-hitch design.

Recently joining the add-on list for the Clayton tractor line-up is a 2000-litre capacity hopper for boosting outputs of drills and spreaders. The hopper is designed to carry a range of dry materials including fertiliser and seed.

A pair of hydraulic rams tips the unit, with contents exiting through a sliding gate. Overflow is prevented by a louvered grid on the hopper top.

At 1.2m (48in) wide, the hopper sits within the Claytons platform area without restricting the tractors four-wheel steering system. Hopper price is £3450. &#42
