Hot on trail for feed transport

LATEST product in the Ritchie Farm Equipment range is the Cattle Feed Trailer, designed to transport large volumes of feed.

Bales, root crops or silage can be carried on the unit, which, Ritchie says, can be trailed by any tractor down to as little as 50hp.

Timber flooring and sides are said to be easy to replace and able to withstand the corrosive effects of silage far better than metal.

The trailer, 4.9m x 1.5m (16ft x 5ft) wide, incorporates a vertical railed feed barrier and a full width hinged rear door. The all-welded construction, hot dipped galvanised, adds greater durability.

Ritchie says the fixed drawbar comes complete with a bucket stand and ring hitch. The trailer has running gear of 10.0/75 – 15.3 x 10 ply tyres on six stud axles.

Retail price of the Cattle Feed Trailer is £1549 (01472-240869, fax 01472-240868).
